Marriage Camp is focused on bringing married couples together for a weekend of powerful teaching sessions designed to connect partners and strengthen relationships. Unifying worship, amazing meals, and plenty of free time to check out all the exciting camp activities (or just rest!) round out a refreshing time away. The two of you can bunk in your own cabin on camp or reserve a room at a local VRBO or hotel.
Check in: Friday 5-7pm; Supper is at 7pm
Check out: Sunday after lunch
Hosted by Pastors Eric & Kelly Dykstra and Pastor Jason & Tracy Keech
Eric and Kelly Dykstra are the founding pastors of Free Grace United, a family of churches based in Minnesota. They have been married 28 years and have three grown children & a grandson who is getting a brother soon. They have authored several books and traveled a few places (their favorite is Israel), and they enjoy sharing what they've learned with others who are pursuing a Christ-focused life.
Jason and Tracy have been married since 1997. They raised two kids and became empty-nesters in 2020. They pastor at Free Grace United in Zimmerman, Minnesota, where Tracy also works as Communications Director. From a desire to help couples be blessed through marriage, they wrote a 30-Day He Said/She Said Devotional called Happy Marriage lol (available on Amazon and Kindle). In addition to bass fishing (Jason) and spoiling their black lab (Tracy), these two truly enjoy the opportunity to share God’s grace, love, and hope with everyone they meet.

Lon and Dawn are the founding and lead pastors of Liberty Church. God has given them a vision and a passion for people to embrace grace and reach their potential.
