2017 Dates: AUGUST 13-15 and AUGUST 16-18

For those of you familiar with RVR's Winter Meltdown youth retreat, think of IGNITE as Winter Meltdown with a summer vibe! Ignite is designed to launch a spirit-filled school year for your students, with you as their guide.

3-days & 2-nights, All-inclusive, $200 per student!

Summer Youth Retreat

IGNITE is a 3-day, 2-night youth retreat for youth groups and student ministries of all sizes to grow deeper in their Christian faith and be challenged in their walk with the Lord. Designed specifically for those students that have already exhibited a strong grasp of their faith, the Ignite retreat seeks not only to engage them with exciting activities, but to equip them in dynamic sessions and breakout discussions on how to be living out that faith in all areas of their lives!

Whether at home, at school, at church, sports, or wherever, it's our desire that Ignite will spur your youth on to greater heights in their walk and unleash them back into a generation & culture that is in desperate need of the light of the gospel of Jesus Christ!

Summer Retreat Activities & Things To Do

Students will enjoy days packed with thrilling activities such as RVR's famous 1500' Triple Zipline, Giant Swing, Paintball, High Ropes Challenge Course, and more! Those activities will then be used to lead deep discussions to apply those experiences to greater life truths like Facing Adversity, Faith, Fellowship & Community, and more.

Students will also enjoy epic group games, a pool party, and free time to hit up the snack shop, camp store, or game room.

Each evening and morning will feature in depth services with seasoned speakers that know the challenges and obstacles Christian youth face in their foundational teen years, and can open the Word of God up to speak into the present.

All Inclusive Retreat

No planning, no coordinating, no shopping list for this and that, we'll take care of all the details! Meals, lodging, speaker, band, activities, bonfire, and more— Ignite is an all-inclusive summer youth retreat. Take a virtual tour or see some of our facilities on our Retreat Facilities Page.
