Young Adult Retreat 18-30+ ~ June 10 – 14
Come join us again this year for a love-filled weekend retreat in our gorgeous Camp Valley! This year's Young Adult Retreat will be a unique service-oriented experience - think Construction Camp meets Garden Weekend meets Dancing the Path. See all of your friends! Make beautiful music together! Give hugs and massages, breathe the fresh mountain air, and reconnect with the magical place we all hold so dear.
As you all know, our beloved Dining Hall is currently being rebuilt, and our retreat falls right smack in the middle of that final "push" to get it ready for the summer. That's why we have decided to invite you all to come join in a weekend of joyful service where we will help in every way possible to get camp on its feet before children and families begin filling the valley.
We will keep to our normal camp schedule, with mornings and afternoons filled with service in place of an organized program. Our evenings will still offer time for group activities such as massage, vespers, campfires, and deep connection with each other. This is an opportunity to connect with one another and live out the ideal of "joyful service" with the people we love the most in a place that seriously needs our help right now.
And the best news of all, because you will be volunteering your time and energy to helping Camp, the weekend is FREE! We truly hope you will join us this year to connect with friends new and old in a weekend full of play, work, song, laughter, and joy!
