Imagine our aNew Season Worship Band players leading us in song around a campfire.
Imagine sleeping in comfortable quarters among other women, while your kids are supervised in a bunk house by Christian camp counselors.
Imagine, if your kids are launched, just loving on other widows and even their kids. Or just spending time together healing and growing with others who get it.
Imagine encouraging talks and breakout sessions for you as a widow and for your middle or highschooler, where they can connect with other kids who have lost their fathers.
Imagine fun activities like zip lining, archery, swimming and canoeing, or just relaxing in a camp setting. All available to you and your kids to do as a group or individually; so you can either have bonding time with your kids or new friends who share this journey of widowhood with you.
Now stop imagining and save the date, because we are doing it!
We are planning a summer retreat in July!
We will first open a session from July 17-19, 2015. (Arriving Friday, leaving Sunday)
Once that session fills up, we will then open a session from July 15-17, 2015. (Arriving Wednesday, leaving Friday)
If you wish to stay all four nights you can sign up first for the 17th-19th session, and when the 15th-17th session opens, you are welcome to extend your stay for the additional nights.
The location will be in Oregon, Illinois, about ninety minutes from O’Hare airport. The camp will be providing free shuttle service to and from the airport.
Details like program fees for adults and children, meal plan fees, schedules of events, and accommodation costs will be coming soon. Our conference and retreat planning committee is hard at work. But, we can share with you that childcare is provided, FREE of charge!
If you are considering coming, please let us know by filling out the form below. We will then send an email to you with more details, once they are available.
We are so excited and looking forward to this new and fun opportunity for us to gather in the Lord’s name and learn, heal, and grow in Him in such a wonderful location.
