Redbud Trail Retreat

Redbud Trail Retreat is a retreat center owned by the First Presbyterian Church of South Bend. It is used mainly by the congregation for fellowship and fun. Each year FPC hosts a week-long outdoor summer day camp at Redbud that is fun, engaging and safe for children 5 years to 6th grade. Our youth support adult leadership as counselors for the week and have their own special overnights. Please contact the church office for  any questions.

This year’s VBS Day Camp  is for 5 years through 6th grade. Day campers, adult volunteers and counselors leave at 8:30 A.M. from FPC’s parking lot on a bus and return at 3:00 P.M. Forms for children are below. Registration is $35 per child.

Campers need to bring a bag lunch, bathing suit & towel and closed shoes/sneakers for games.
