About Fusion Retreats

Thank you for visiting the Fusion Retreat Website. Fusion Retreat is a United Methodist Youth retreat held annually at Eagle Eyrie Conference Center in Lynchburg, Virginia, during late February or early March.

This retreat is sponsored by the Danville and Lynchburg Districts of the Virginia Conference of the United Methodist Church, though any churches from other Districts who wish to participate are welcome to do so.

Each year's Fusion Retreat features a guest speaker, a praise and worship band, small group time, youth group time, great worship, good food, a designated mission project, and much more.

This year's Fusion Retreat will be held February 23-25, 2018. The theme is "Anchor" and the scripture focus will be upon Hebrews 6:19 - "We have this hope as an anchor for the soul, firm and secure."
