Dunrovin Christian Brothers Retreat Center

Put your money where the smiles are!

I smile more when I'm at Dunrovin. (6th grade girl)

Why do young people smile more at Dunrovin? Because here they encounter God.

A student's smile articulate the joy and peace in the heart. Dunrovin's ministry to youth welcomes middle and high school students to retreats and camps that touch their hearts. We operate from the notion that faith should first be caught and then taught. Through intensive leadership training coupled with prayer and fun, young people are energetically challenged in spiritual, physical, and mental ways. We accompany the students to open their spirits in trust; they let walls fall down and begin to perceive God’s purpose for them in the world beyond themselves.

These youth come to Dunrovin when YOU support their fees. They come from underserved populations of the Twin Cities, Chicago, greater Minnesota, and Wisconsin. They grow in Catholic faith, personal strength, community, and service...and they experience God's peace and safety in the shelter of Dunrovin.
