About us

A retreat to support & enrich the confirmation process of your congregation. For both youth & leaders. Come, share the journey!

Five Oaks offers quality programming designed to assist those discerning confirmation dig a little deeper, securing their faith-filled roots. For churches that run a confirmation program of their own, this retreat will enrich your confirmation process. For churches that are not able to run a confirmation program of their own (due to limited resources or a limited number of youth in their congregation), this weekend program is an ideal substitute.

Gathering together at Five Oaks offers youth the opportunity to meet peers from other congregations and to share the journey of being confirmed into the United Church.

Together we learn, “We are not alone”.

Program Content:

The framework is based on our New Creed and A Song of Faith. Participants will explore their understanding of God, Jesus, the church, and how they see themselves living into their beliefs. We will spend time deepening our faith through spiritual practice, biblical encounter and theological reflection – with a whole lot of fun added!


For this retreat youth are expected to attend with an adult from their church who will be responsible for the supervision of the youth and who will participate fully in the program. Five Oaks recommends a minimum of one adult for every eight youth. It is recommended that the church ensure that the adult has been screened. This adult must be able to attend the whole weekend.

Participants are to bring their own sleeping bag, pillow case, towel and nut free snacks to share.

All youth must bring a signed consent form:

Retreat Guru's Vision

We believe human beings are innately wise, strong and kind. This wisdom, although not always experienced, is always present. Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health. Our aspiration at Retreat Guru is to inspire people to experience authentic retreats and reconnect with their innate wisdom, strength and kindness.
