It is TIME! Winter Youth Retreat 2023 is happening! The Blowing Rock Conference Center welcomes youth from all around the southeast for a weekend of storytelling, experiential education, service, and of course, fun in the snow on January 13-16, 2023.

Our programming will include the duo Alathea, winners of numerous acoustic music and songwriting awards, who takes stories from their lives and weaves them into instantly relatable music. Rooted in the Appalachian Mountains, Alathea (Mandee Radford Langley and Cristi Johnson) create and perform original and traditional music in what they call Front-Porch-style, using eclectic instruments, thick modern harmonies and engaging storytelling of life on the road, taking cues from nature, their families, and neighbors along the way.

Registration is already underway, and we encourage you to make your plans now.
