A relaxed weekend with spiritual intentions.

In the craziness of the world right now, it’s harder than ever to find space to rest in God’s presence. We invite you to take a step out of your busy daily routine and come to camp for our Contemplative Retreat. This is an opportunity for you to seek what the Lord has for you through experiences including quiet time in nature, contemplative stations, guidance and direction from spiritual directors, rest and relaxation, and one-on-one sessions with a spiritual director. This weekend is for YOU to simply be with the Lord in an uninterrupted way.

There will be times of community available as well as silent, contemplative times. We encourage you to bring a friend along who you can share this experience with – this retreat is for individuals aged high school and up.

Check back on this page as we will be updating it with more details as we work to create a special weekend for you to spend time with God.
