Energizer Retreat Leader

Energizer Retreat

Bring your children's group! Deepen their relationship with you and with God during a weekend away from distractions.



We do the details so you are free to do ministry!

The Energizer Retreat weekend is designed for elementary students to get away from the every day and step out into God’s natural creation to focus on building a deeper relationship with God, with you and with other like-minded children.christian camps in pa

“We bring our students back each year because Joy El’s Energizer Retreats are ‘all encompassing.’  Children have the opportunity to learn about Christ through music, scripture, open dialog and team building activities.  The structure of the weekend allows for each child to embrace Christ differently.  Whether it is through a quiet conversation or a real ‘leap of faith’ on the zip line.  Everyone comes away from Joy El feeling loved, more confident and faithful. Our staff and volunteers look forward to the Energizer weekend just as much as the children.” Del Franz, York PA, adult leader at previous Energizer Retreats

“The experience at Joy El was amazing. Everything exceeded my expectations.” –adult leader for children’s group

The planning and program are all provided for you so that you get the weekend to connect with your children without the distractions of details.  The deeper the relationship, the deeper the impact you and your leaders will have with your kids.

“This was my first experience with Joy El.  I was impressed with how well planned and thought out the weekend was!” — adult leader at a previous Joy El camping event.
