Young Adult Retreat & Reunion Party

Young Adult Retreat

Saturday, June 17th – Sunday, June 18th, 2017 at Bethel University in St. Paul


The retreat will be hosted at Bethel University in St. Paul from Saturday, June 17th at 9:00 a.m. to Sunday, June 18th at noon. The Young Adult Retreat allows former Odayin campers who’ve graduated high school an opportunity to connect while learning about life experiences that are unique to young people with heart disease. There is no age limit to attend the Young Adult Retreat. Participants have an opportunity to reunite with their Odayin family and share in their transition to adulthood. Retreat activities range from educational guest speakers to personal growth and wellness opportunities. On Saturday night, participants are automatically registered to attend the Reunion Party. Housing and meals are provided from Saturday lunch through Sunday breakfast. There is a $25 fee to attend the Young Adult Retreat, but Camp Odayin is happy to cover the cost if you are unable. See Financial Support below for details and transportation reimbursement information.

Register to attend YAR by June 5th.

The Young Adult Retreat registration is part of our online portal. We encourage participants to create their own account, rather than use their parents’ accounts in order to register. Once you are logged into your account, you will access the YAR registration by selecting “Register for Camp”. The form can’t be saved so please have details regarding your insurance, medication, and health history available to complete the form in one sitting. Please contact if you have any difficulties with the registration process.
