26 Below
Southwest 26 Below

Since the launch of 26 Below in the Northeast, Midwest, and Southeast, CMML received many requests for a retreat in other regions. Southwest 26 Below is a new 26 below retreat held at Camp Copass in Denton, Texas. The goal of this retreat is to challenge the next generation in their walk with the Lord through powerful messages from God’s Word, interactive breakout sessions, and unique opportunities to hear from missionaries serving all over the world. 

Who Can Attend?

26 Below is geared for young people in high school, college, and entering into their career up to about age 26. 

Under 18

Attendees must be at least 14 years old and in 9th grade to attend 26 Below. Anyone under 18 years of age may only attend as part of a youth group or with an adult leader over the age of 22 and must arrive and depart with an adult leader. No one under the age of 18 may be dropped off at the retreat by someone who is not attending. 

Youth Leaders

Youth leaders must be over 22 years old. Groups must provide a youth leader of the same gender for every EIGHT minors. Youth Leaders are responsible for the health, safety, obedience, attendance, and spiritual well-being of their youth group. 

Over 18

While this retreat is geared towards those age 26 and below, we do not have an upper age limit. We ask that those over 30 attend as youth leaders if possible. Attendees over 18 are responsible for themselves. This includes transportation, health and safety, and adherence to rules.
