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.

Additional Information for Group Leaders:

 

 

  • You must have one adult leader per gender for every 8 youth registered

(For example: If you bring 9 female youth you must bring 2 adult females; 4 male youth you must bring 1 adult male. If you register both male and female youth you must have coinciding adult leaders)

  • All adult leaders will stay in cabins supervising youth overnight. Sky Ranch staff are not responsible for overnight supervision of youth; adult leaders are expected to be active participants in weekend programming.

Breakout Sessions

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.

Build Community

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.

Form Faith

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.

Retreat for Adults

We know how hard you work to bring kids to camp. Fall at Sky Ranch is the perfect time to relax, rejuvenate, and rest! Adults are welcome to play disc golf, hike, or simply relax by the fire in the lodge.
