Women’s Retreat (September 15-17, 2017)
Women’s Retreat is a time for ladies to be refreshed and rejuvenated in the presence of familiar friends and new ones, as well. Enjoy all of this in our beautfiul camp setting as you walk around the lake at sunrise, or even take on an adventerous spirit and try out our zipline! At the very least, you can expect to enjoy fantastic food and fellowship.

Incredible worship and challenging messages are the cornerstone of the weekend. Saturday afternoon offers many choices. Sign up for a craft, a workshop or a turn on the rifle range!
You can also canoe, take a walk around the lake, bicycle, shop, head down the zip line, or visit the rifle range. Another perk - the food is great, and you don't have to cook or clean up!
