Ladies Retreat Update, July 29, 2020:
With much deliberation and prayer involving the staff, consultants, Ladies Retreat Committee, and speakers for the retreat we have decided that, for the best interest and health of all involved, we will be cancelling the Ladies Retreat 2020.
The summer has been successful and lives have been changed. Protocols were followed closely to maintain the health of every camper. This cancellation is due to the vulnerability of the population that attends the Ladies Retreat and because we cannot maintain the protocols at the same level as summer camp.
Know that you are loved and the gathering will be missed. So until we meet again, may God's grace, peace, and provision be yours.

Update on July 29, 2020: Please see the note above regarding the cancellation of this year's Ladies Retreat. As much as it depends on us, we look forward to getting together in 2021 with a similar setup as what we were planning for 2020.
“So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.”

Ladies, we're excited to see you at the retreat. Here are a few details to note before you come:
- Sign up for overnight housing when you arrive.
- We have facilities for those with special needs.
- Spa Sessions will not be available this year!
- All meals will be provided.
- Please bring your own bedding (twin beds) & towels.
- We are casual! You'll see ladies in all types of clothing at the retreat. Please wear what you're comfortable in.
We will be practicing safe and sanitary guidelines during the retreat. We will ask those who come as a group to stay as a group, in the cabins and at the tables. We will have more distance between all seating in classes and the gym. Hand sanitizer stations will be available. Please bring your own mask. The camp has several health and sanitation procedures we have put into place.
This year will be our 12th Annual Basket Auction. This is a fun activity to help us keep the cost of the retreat lower so all ladies can attend. Baskets can be put together by one or a group of ladies. There are several themes you could use for your basket, such as movie night, devotion & quiet time, kitchen, cleaning, gardening, holiday, and the list goes on. We set these up for a silent auction which ends after lunch on Saturday. Throughout the retreat you can check on the baskets to see if you have the highest bid. When the retreat ends you may pay and pick up your basket if you had the highest bid on one.
