We invite teens, ages 16-18, to embark on an 8-day summer session full of fun, friendship, recreation, prayer, and study. Our retreat will be on the monastery grounds of the Community of St. John in Princeville, IL and is led by Brothers and Sisters of St. John. For 16 summers, young people have gathered at the Eagle Eye Teen Summer Institute in Princeville, Illinois to search for what is most profound – God. This summer, our classes will focus on the theme “The Pursuit of Goodness: What About it Makes Life Worth Living?”. The classes, along with Mass, the Divine Office, and a Holy Hour each day, give teens the opportunity to grow closer to Christ and be formed in the truths of the faith. Campfires, sports, and recreation offer a chance to form deep friendships with other teens dedicated to growing in holiness.
