Fall Youth Retreat: Nov. 17th - 19th, 2023Join us for our annual Fall Youth Retreat this November! Each year youth gather together from across Indiana, Kentucky, and Ohio for a weekend of rest and fall fun at Pyoca. Youth will gather for keynotes and worship each day, meet new friends through small group sessions, and have plenty of time to explore all that Pyoca has to offer. Throughout the day on Saturday afternoon youth will get to choose from a number of activities, including: high ropes, hiking to Mt. Baldy, climbing tower, crafts, and more, plus plenty of free time to hang out and connect with new and old friends. Saturday afternoon we are hosting a Camp Carnival and at night we'll come together for a concert by keynote speaker David LaMotte, followed by our Fall Fest, complete with a bonfire, hotdog and s'more roast, games, and after dark wagon rides through the forestry.
David LaMotte is an author, speaker, and musician from Black Mountain, North Carolina, where he lives with his wife and son. He has offered thousands of concerts and talks on five continents and released thirteen albums, as well as two children’s books. He is a Rotary Peace Fellow, a former member of the AFSC Nobel Peace Prize Nominating Committee, and a co-founder of PEG Partners, a non-profit supporting arts, education, and mentoring for children in Guatemala. His new book, You Are Changing the World Whether You Like It Or Not, was released this year by Chalice Press.

This fall we will be exploring what it means to be a Christian in an interfaith world. We'll ask, "How do we live, love, and lead like Jesus and support those who may believe differently than we do?" David LaMotte will guide us through these and other questions, along with an interfaith panel hosted at camp on Saturday morning. Join us as we seek to follow Jesus's commandment to Love Thy Neighbor.
