January 12-14, 2018 at Mount Carmel
Picture yourself relaxing in sauna in the lodge with friends, then jumping in the snow to cool off! Want to throw a few snowballs or make a snowman? Bring your cross country skis or snow shoes, go for a hike. Warm up around the fireplace with some hot cocoa or tea. Make some fun memories at camp – during the wintertime!
This retreat is the perfect weekend for you to get away from the stress and craziness of school or work. Put the school books down and be filled with some deep fellowship and freedom that comes when we spend time together with the Lord and other people of faith.
Guest Hosts: Sam White and David Blackstad
Guest Speakers: Nate & Christina Paulsen; Thomas Gustafson.

Please bring: Bible, clothes to play out in the snow, something modest to wear in sauna, ready hearts to be encouraged in the Lord.
