COVID-19 UPDATE (7/2/2020): The original plan was for the retreat to take place as scheduled at Pine Cove Camps. Due the pandemic we are no longer able to host the retreat at that location. Although, this retreat will now be held at TJC's Main Campus for 2020! Please note the retreat dates have slightly changed and it is now being held Monday - Thursday.
On-Campus Housing Residents will move into their assigned rooms upon check in on Monday, August 17. More details to come on designated check-in times. Commuters will still be able to attend the retreat, although on-campus housing will not be available for the retreat dates.
If for some reason we are not able to hold the retreat due to health and safety concerns and we have to postpone or cancel, registration fees would be refunded.
