Pool - The resort has an indoor pool. Bring appropriate and modest swimwear (no bikinis - see modesty guidelines in code of behavior for more info).
The CYLT has prepared "The Amazing Race of Faith" Adventure Scavenger Hunt that will take place throughout the event space of the Resort. Teams of teens will compete against the clock and each other to complete a variety of adventure tasks. Once a winning team is declared we will transition into a concert in the Ballroom with Jackie Francois, and end the night with a time of prayer in front of the Blessed Sacrament
