Coyote Howl Confirmation Retreat
Coyote Howl Confirmation Retreat creates sacred space for confirmation students to build upon a foundation which will travel back with them to their home congregations. Coyote Howl retreats offer community building, Bible study, worship and fellowship with youth from throughout the Rocky Mountain Synod. Alongside our dynamic, energetic and passionate staff, youth will explore the way that God is at work in their individual communities along with how their connection to one another essentially shapes their journey of faith. This program is designed to support congregational confirmation curriculum with time for congregations built in throughout the weekend.
Coyote Howl weekends fall during the peak season of changing colors. This creates a unique setting for youth to experience their faith away from the distractions that can often distract us from the beauty around us. Each member of your group is a valuable gift. Coyote Howl is a space created to recognize the gifts each person brings; when we allow space for the members of confirmation classes to be authentically themselves and truly hear their story, the wonders of God’s love and grace can truly be recognized.
Theme: Coming Soon!
Speaker: Nicole Hanneman - Nicole's passion for faith began at an early age and was strengthened by life experiences, as well as two summers on staff at Sky Ranch and her four years at Colorado Christian University. Today, Nicole authentically walks alongside younger generations in exploring their faith and as they grow closer to Christ by affirming that they are loved and worthy where they are, just as they are.

Campers will create story boards, go on day hikes, and participate in low ropes team building--creating an interactive space for youth to experience their faith.
Your youth will grow closer with one another and build new friendships with kids from around the Rocky Mountain Synod. Sky Ranch staff facilitate worship, games, breakout sessions, and more.
Our caring staff will inspire your youth to engage in their faith at camp, while energizing youth to bring their faith home. Coyote Howl engages youth and builds excitement about the upcoming year of confirmation in your congregation.
