A CSA Retreat is an AWESOME and packed weekend. There are talks about being Catholic with clear explanations of why we do what we do. So, if you're a little new or just out of practice with your faith, don't worry. We'll clue you in to everything we're doing and give you lots of chances to ask questions.
There's Mass, prayer, and small groups. You'll see some really funny skits. We also take time out for sports and games. There's quiet time for you to hang out by the water, or talk with friends, a campfire for making s'mores, and plenty of good food. Everybody likes something different about these retreats, but in all the years we've been doing them, we don't know of anyone who was sorry that they came!
CSA Retreats are for college students (ages 18-24) from Rutgers or other colleges in the Central Jersey area.
The easiest way to sign up for retreat is to sign up and pay online with a credit card. Or you can download an application and drop it off with your payment at the front table of the Catholic Center. Registration forms and payment should be dropped off at the front desk of the Catholic Center.
Where is it located? about 45 minutes from New Brunswick at beautiful Camp Tecumseh. Don't worry; we meet at the church, give you directions, and even set you up with some new friends & a ride to Retreat!
What should I bring? You need to pack clothes to get through the weekend, shampoo & soap for showers, towels, bedding & a pillow. Also, feel free to bring a journal to write in, or a Bible!
How long is retreat? Retreat starts Friday evening, meet at the Catholic Center at 5PM to eat pizza, get directions & rides. Everyone heads out for a fun-filled weekend of experiencing the Lord! We get back from retreat on Sunday around 4pm!
