Arise Youth Retreat

August 26-30 | Camp Jubilee | North Vancouver

All youth born in 2009 and 2010 (going into Grades 9 and 10 this September) are invited to the annual Arise Youth Retreat at Camp Jubilee in North Vancouver on August 26-30!

By combining practical skills, a faith perspective and spiritual development, participants will learn and grow in their faith through engaging activities, presentations, games, skits, reflection, sharing and the opportunity to interact with each other in a faith-filled, safe environment.

We will explore self-identity, how to build community connections, and how to make Jesus Christ the centre of our lives.

Catholic Family Camp

August 28 - August 30 | Stepping Stones Bible Camp | Deroche

Join us for an unforgettable journey at the first-ever Catholic Family Camp hosted by the Archdiocese of Vancouver. This getaway is for families of all types, ages, and sizes to come together for rest, play, fellowship and prayer.

Inspired by Pope Francis at the 9th World Meeting of Families, the time together will focus on how we are called to be beacons of God's joyous love. Your family will connect with others to strengthen this mission, living out the joy and love that God desires for every family.

Families should prepare to arrive in the late afternoon on Wednesday, August 28, at Stepping Stones Bible Camp in Deroche. Family Camp will end in the afternoon on Friday, August 30.

Registration deadline: Monday, July 29, or whenever we reach capacity. Learn more and register at
