Join us for a weekend of growth for both parent and child!

We invite you to a time away from the stress of everyday life to spend time with your child/children. This retreat will focus on Growing With, which is the idea that parents work to grow with their children as they transition into different stages, trusting God to transform everyone in the family. We will have several experiences available to choose from that will be centered on spending time together and learning together. Enjoy some fun outdoor adventures, like hiking and mountain biking, and learn something new by working on a hands-on project with your child. This is not just for young children – adult children are welcome to join their parents for this experience!

This retreat is centered around parent/child relationships, and how we can work to incorporate God into them for family growth. All ages of children are welcome, and feel free to bring the whole family! Some activities may be tailored for a one-on-one or two-on-one group. Grandparents are welcome to join! If you have any questions about these guidelines, contact Luci Schweigert at luci@portagelake.org or call our office at (231) 889-5911.
