Join us for Men’s Retreat to spend time with God and fellow men in the beauty of creation. Men's Retreat is planned each year by Mountain States Mennonite Conference. The festivities for the weekend include worship times, foosball, ping pong, chess, an impromptu musical jam time, and of course the ever popular game of human curling.
ARRIVAL / DEPARTURE: The retreat begins Friday after supper and concludes Sunday after worship and brunch.
Men’s Retreat participants continue the tradition of tackling necessary projects around camp on Friday before the retreat begins (the Men’s Retreat logo does have a hammer in it!) If you are planning on working all or part of the day on Friday, please contact the camp by phone (719-687-9506) or by email (email@example.com) ahead of time so meals and other details can be planned. THANKS!
