Every fall, Encore choristers take part in the most fun and educational event of our season: the Annual Retreat! Over three days, choristers participate in 10 hours of music learning and activities (that’s the equivalent of 4 rehearsals!), as well as team-building games and activities. Participation in the Retreat is mandatory.
When and where is it?
This year’s Retreat will take place from at the YMCA Cedar Glen Outdoor Centre in Schomberg, Ontario (just north of Toronto).
How does my child get to the Retreat?
YVT provides transportation by bus to and from YMCA Cedar Glen. Please arrive at Runnymede Presbyterian Church no later than 7:15 AM on . Our bus leaves promptly at 7:30 AM. Choristers will spend Wednesday and Thursday evenings at YMCA Cedar Glen and will return to RPC on at 9:15 PM (approx.).
How much does it cost?
YVT subsidizes the cost of the retreat for every chorister to make it as affordable as possible. For 2019, it costs $250 and is included in the annual fee on the Registration Form.
Have you submitted your Retreat Health Form?
You must submit your chorister’s Retreat Health Form no later than . We must know of all allergies, dietary needs, medications, health conditions, or special needs among our choristers. This information is required for everyone’s safety and will be handled with the utmost discretion. Submitting your form late means EXTRA work for both YVT and YMCA staff, so please submit your form on or before the deadline. Click here to complete the online Retreat Health Form.

We look forward to singing with you at the Retreat!
