Looks like a festival, feels like a retreat
It feels like a retreat because we have one speaker, one worship band, and one theme that drives our teaching throughout all the main sessions. It's youth group focused where your group will stay together in our dorms and eat together in our dining hall. Also, after each main session you'll meet with your group for "Youth Group Time" where you can discuss the message with your students and reconnect as a group. This lends itself to a common experience that brings people together and helps deepen relationships.
While the retreat aspects provide so much, YQ is also much more than your average youth group retreat. With 1800+ people from across Canada, YQ has an incredible energy to it. With a mix of concerts, breakout sessions, activities, and our four main sessions, YQ becomes a perfect combination of festival and retreat. Join us this February for a weekend you won't forget!
