Retreats & Conferences

We love a good retreat and conference! There are multiple opportunities for students to grow deeper in their faith and grow closer to community throughout the year—from Fall Retreat to Men’s/Women’s Retreats in the spring. We invite you to consider coming to our Chico Cru retreats and encourage you also come to Cru Winter Conference: San Fransisco. Scroll down for more information!



Fall Retreat is coming! Join us for a weekend up in the mountains where you will get the opportunity to connect with other students in Cru, hear from a speaker, worship together and play some sick games.

When: September 27-29

Location: Pilot Lake Wilderness Camp

Cost: $80 for returners, $20 if you are new to Cru!

Packing List:

Warm clothes/athletic clothes for games


Sleeping bag (you can rent from Adventure Outings on campus!) or warm blankets

Your best fall flannel.

Fishing pole ($5 to catch two fish) —there is an awesome lake there filled with trought!

We value sustainability, so we are asking that you bring a water bottle to refill and a thermos for coffee/hot coco, so we can cut down on the use of plastic cups.



Over a thousand college students from the West Coast (from Seattle to San Diego) will gather in San Fransisco for a weekend of trusting God to move us closer to Him and closer to one another. Imagine worshipping God with a thousand other college students—it truly is a small glimpse into heaven. Chico Cru will represent strong and it’s a sweet opportunity to be challenged in your faith and grow deeper in friendships with others!
