Bring a group on a Castlerigg Youth Retreat…

For over forty years, Castlerigg Manor has been welcoming Catholic youth groups into our home in Keswick. At our heart we are a community dedicated to sharing our Catholic faith and Castlerigg’s beautiful setting within the Lake District National Park offers an ideal location for spiritual retreat.

We provide an opportunity for young people to get away from their everyday lives, the pressures of home, school, exams and social media. For a few days their focus becomes simply the people around them, community and prayer.

A youth retreat at Castlerigg involves team building, reflection, games, prayer, arts & crafts, drama, walking, and social time. It offers the opportunity for learning and inspiration, the strengthening of faith, friendship and fun.

We welcome all school and parish groups from throughout the UK on week retreats, from Monday to Friday, or weekends from Friday to Sunday, but are delighted to accommodate day groups, one night stays and longer trips as requested.
