About the Event

Sherlake is a home away from home where you are helped by friends and mentors to grow into the best version of yourself! The STEP UP Summer Experience is a unique opportunity to spend time with your "Sherlake Family", discussing important topics with old and new friends and making memories! You will also meet girls from other cities and Centers and share experiences and ideas. 

STEP UP Summer program has three important goals!

1) Have tons of fun

2) Deepen friendships (including with Jesus!)

3) Learn about the mission and spirit of Opus Dei and how the teachings of St. Josemaria can help you be a true leader in your highschool years and beyond!

A day at STEP UP: 

  • The day starts with meditation and Mass. The time of prayer will introduce the theme of the day. 
  • The morning will be filled with lively discussions and activities that build on the theme of the day. We will use 7 Habits for Highly Effective Teens as the basis for the discussions. 
  • In the afternoon, we will "travel" to a different country each day. The high school counselors are hard at work getting to know girls from Opus Dei centers all over the world so that they can share favorite songs, dances, and insights from teens of different cultures. 
  • We know you enjoy free time! There will be ample opportunities to explore the grounds and play sports. 
  • We will take turns in the kitchen preparing cultural dinners for the whole group to enjoy!
  • We set aside quiet time toward the end of the day for personal prayer and journaling. The counselors will share helpful tips on how to pray based on thier own experience. 
  • Each night will end with an exciting surprise activity. 

This is a tech free event!!! Please only sign up if you are willing to leave your screens at home and invest in face to face friendships for the week. You won't regret it!
