Freshman Retreat

The Freshman Retreat is a new retreat at CHS. The retreat provides all freshmen the opportunity to experience all that CHS has to offer and learn about what it means to be a Crusader. The retreat is held in February (typically the last week/weekend in February) at Canisius. The retreat runs from a Thursday afternoon through a Saturday morning. Students spend the time engaging in activities that assist in developing brotherhood, an understanding of reflection, an understanding of the broader CHS community and what it means to be a Crusader as both a student and alumni at Canisius. The retreat is planned by a team of junior and seniors and it is run by roughly 150 other students ranging from sophomores to seniors. The retreat is mandatory for all freshmen.
