Brave the Wilderness and Expedition are a week long, overnight retreat for middle school and high school students hosted and put together by several parishes from the Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston.

Held at Forest Glen in Huntsville, Texas, Brave and Expedition give teens an opportunity to grow deeper in their relationship with Christ while experiencing His love in the midst of His creation. Amidst the beauty of Sam Houston National Forest, Brave the Wilderness and Expedition allow teens to meet members of other local parishes within our deanery while building lasting relationships with them and with Christ.

Camp activities include zipline, rockwall, swimming, competition games, nightly talks, prayer experiences, daily Mass and so much more!

Brave is open to students enrolled in 9th-12th grade for the 2022-2023 school year.
Expedition is open to students enrolled in 6th, 7th, and 8th grade for the 2022 – 2023 school year.
