About the Retreat

Our retreat will focus on the recent Apostolic Exhortation by Pope Francis, “Christ Is Alive”

Our retreat days are designed for us to gather at the beginning of the year for fellowship, prayer, networking, with some learning and lots of FUN. We envision a laid back atmosphere with time for relaxation, reflection, and a good amount of faith-sharing and laughter. Many of you know the Castaway Camp from our time there usually in March. In recent years many of us have found that August is a fantastic time to experience the true beauty of the camp and enjoy the beach and other fun elements to the camp.

Please refer to the schedule on page 2 as we would like to begin by 12 pm on Monday, August 26th. We will be staying in the Clipper/Dory Cottages on camp. Towels, sheets, pillows and linens are provided. Please bring snacks and beverage to share. We will work together to provide our meals. For those who register we will coordinate food and car pooling. We look forward to our retreat and starting the year off in a fun way. Blessings on the remaining days of summer. Kristi Bivens and Kent Schmitz – CEM
