Retreats

Stepping away from the patterns of daily life creates the space and time for reflection and growth in your spiritual journey.

Campus Ministry invites the university community to participate in a variety of retreat experiences throughout the year. Each retreat has a unique focus, ranging from contemplation and discernment to fellowship.

WHAT IS SEARCH?
Search is the longest-running retreat at Santa Clara University. Staff and student crews guide "Searchers" through an energetic, ecumenical weekend of reflecting, sharing and experiencing God's love in community. While the retreat is grounded in the Jesuit, Catholic spirituality of SCU, it's open to individuals of all religious traditions and themed in such a way that individuals of all backgrounds feel welcomed and comfortable. Many students describe Search as one of the highlights of their Santa Clara University experience.

WHEN IS SEARCH?
Search will take place May 4-6, 2018.

WHERE IS SEARCH?
Search will be held at the beautiful Missions Springs Camp in the Santa Cruz mountains!
