 Higher Ground is a five-day Catholic youth program for those who will be juniors or seniors in high school. This program is sponsored by the Diocese of Grand Island's Office of Youth and Young Adult Ministry, with Fr. Josh Brown as the Diocesan Spiritual Director.

The purpose of Higher Ground is to create an environment where Christian community may be experienced. The activities provide an enjoyable opportunity for the young people to develop a better sense of self, to build positive relationships with others and to grow closer to God.

At Higher Ground, 20-40 participants and 10 adult staff, gather in an informal atmosphere to have a lot of fun and build relationships of trust. The group is encouraged to experience the joy of playing, praying and working together as a community of faith.

The week begins on Sunday at 7:00 PM, and ends at 10:00 AM the following Friday. There are two consecutive weeks of camp, beginning the last week in May (Memorial Day Weekend).


Refund Policy

We hope that your child will have opportunity to experience Higher Ground Retreats™, however we understand that extenuating circumstances do arise. If for some reason, your child will not be able to attend, we will partially refund your fee, providing you notify us before the registration deadline for your particular week. If notice is not given before the registration deadline for you particular week, part of the registration fee will only be refunded in certain circumstances.  If you cancel within 10 days of camp, or do not show up for your week, no money will be refunded. This is necessary due to costs related to expected participation.
