Respect Retreat

Crestwood High School believes that to do well in school, students need to be comfortable with whom they are and feel physically and emotionally safe. In this effort to create a safe and caring culture, we are bringing in Youth Frontiers to facilitate a Respect Retreat.

On the Respect Retreat, the Youth Frontiers retreat staff will focus on creating a more positive school community by engaging students in a variety of activities that build students’ empathy skills and teach safe ways to help prevent bullying.

This high-energy, interactive retreat is scheduled for September 11th, 2015 for the 9th grade class and will be held at Heritage Events Center.
Visit for more information on Youth Frontiers, access great parent resources and watch a video about the Respect Retreat.
