I just spent five days at our summer camp from our Church. We took 400 of our students and 75 leaders in 10 coach buses to the camp site. Retreating from our normal routine is important. There's something about getting away from our daily routine and participating in activities that you would normally not participate in.
Perspective of your daily life is freely given when you can get the chance to retreat. I would encourage you to go on a retreat, even it it's just spending the night at a random hotel or going camping.
