Mother Daughter Retreat – Cancelled

After continuing to monitor the weather, we will cancel the retreat for this weekend. With the uncertainty of potential flooding and high winds, we feel this decision is best for everyone’s safety. Unfortunately, there are no remaining weekends available in 2016 to reschedule this retreat.   We will be issuing full refunds early next week. We will miss having each of you at camp. Hope to see you in 2017.
