Senior Kairos Retreat

Background on Kairos
The Senior Kairos retreat experience is a profound experience of God’s immeasurable love. On this retreat, Seniors discover the grace of the Holy Spirit’s presence in our lives through family, friends, and community. This retreat is led by Cathedral Catholic High School students along with faculty and staff and is a three day, two night retreat. 

Reality of Covid-19 and Overnight Camp for Teens

  • We believe these retreats are central to our faith community and the growth of our students’ personal faith, character, responsibility and their knowledge of themselves, God, and their relationships with others. Additionally, the strong bonds of friendship on a retreat lend themselves to the inadvertent spread of contagions.  This has always been the case with sleep away camps and, even with heightened awareness and Covid safety protocols, we assume this will continue to be the case on these retreats.
  • Covid & Returning to Campus: Please be aware that CCHS is following current San Diego county policies regarding Covid exposure.  IF someone on the retreat were to test positive within 48 hours of the trip, everyone on the retreat would be considered a close contact. All unvaccinated people would be required to quarantine (at home).  The unvaccinated could return to campus on day 8 if they provide a negative covid test or on day 11 if they chose not to test. Vaccinated community members may return to campus if they do not have any symptoms.  Given the community nature of these retreats, everyone on the retreat would be considered a close contact.
  • We will be working closely with the Palomar Christian Conference Center leading up to and during the retreat, to ensure that appropriate Covid-19 safeguards are in place for our students and all participants from CCHS. Our administration and health team are continuously monitoring CDC and County recommendations/guidelines for suggested protocols and we will be implementing the very latest safeguards during our retreats.
