Held each year in one of the seven participating states (Florida, Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina, Virginia, Tennessee and Kentucky), the retreat is a fun, educational and social event that is a unique experience every year!

Focusing on a variety of dairy topics, the trip provides the youth with the opportunity to visit various dairy farms throughout the state, attend workshops taught by industry professionals, visit local attractions unique to the state, and form lasting friendships with youth from different states.
