What’s Pitch’n Praise?

Pitch’n Praise is a camping youth retreat that happens annually on the May long weekend. Our desire is to facilitate a weekend where communities can connect together and grow in their relationship with each other and with Jesus.

The world can often be an over whelming place. All the troubles, anxieties, and despair can become the focus of our attention . At Pitch’n Praise 2017 we want to get back into  Rhythm.

So we have no reason to despair. Despite the fact that our outer humanity is falling apart and decaying, our inner humanity is breathing in new life every day. You see, the short-lived pains of this life are creating for us an eternal glory that does not compare to anything we know here.  So we do not set our sights on the things we can see with our eyes. All of that is fleeting; it will eventually fade away. Instead, we focus on the things we cannot see, which live on and on.
2 Corinthians 4:16-18


Other stuff you’ll need to know:

  1. If this is your first time at Pitch & Praise, you’ll have a blast! You’ll meet new people, get to know your friends a bit better, and learn tons about God.
  1. Try to get some sleep on the weekend! Sleeping in a tent can tend to tire you out.
  1. Workshops will be offered to you, so plan to attend and you could learn something very cool and new!
  1. General sessions are mandatory – meaning – you have to be there unless your leader gives you permission to miss.

Catch some lighthearted films in the evenings or take in a thinker followed by discussion in the afternoons.

The Snack Shack
Probably one of the best poutines this side of Quebec – the snack shack is open every afternoon and evening; as is the Café if coffee is in your blood. Or, if you are craving some street meat, head down to the Big Top and grab a Burger or Hot Dog.

The Irish Folk Dance
On Saturday night bring your group and join in on a traditional Irish folk dance. No need for experience the caller will guide you you through.
