We hope you all are as excited as we are for our 5th annual youth retreat! From December 27th to December 30th, high school and college students will get a chance to stay in a hotel, listen to lectures designed for the youth, make new friends from all over, and strengthen already existing friendships.
This is by far the most attended even BYNY hosts every year, with over 100 kids in high school and college attending. Last year, we had youth come from as far out as St. Louis! There are fresh, new faces every year and this year will be no different.
This year also will be seeing a few changes. A big change from last year is the decision to hold the event at a new hotel this year. This year’s hotel is Garden Plaza Hotel located at 129 Pehle Ave. Saddle Brook, NJ 07663. Along with a new hotel, we’ve also confirmed a new activity we haven’t done previously!
No matter how much planning goes into these retreats, they cannot be successful without the youth showing up and enjoying themselves like they do every year. With that in mind, we ask those who still haven’t RSVP’d to do so as soon as possible. There are a couple of things we would like to email you beforehand, but we can only do that if you RSVP to our e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org. Also, and more importantly, RSVPing will ensure you have a room. We’ve already reserved a set amount of rooms and are quickly approaching that number, therefore we cannot guarantee that there will be anything available on the day of the event.
If you have any comments questions or concerns, email us at email@example.com. We hope to see all your lovely faces!
