This year’s facilities will be 2-person cabins. Please bring a sleeping bag or sheets and blankets for your bed. A pillow should also be brought.

The national weather service predicts highs about 80 and 59 the lows. So dress accordingly.

We hope you enjoy the retreat.


  1. Hi friends,
    We are so sorry but Jim and I will not be able to make. Jim’s heart attack yesterday makes it impossible for now.. we are so sorry. We know it puts a stain on Amanda and the team to fill our jobs, but we need to recoup and see what comes next.
    We pray for blessings for all of you and will miss you.
