Retreats at Camp Friedenswald are all about reconnecting – with yourself, friends new and old, nature, and with God – by disconnecting from the demands of day-to-day life.
March 31–April 1
Theme: Walking with Jesus Presenter: Lisa Weaver
What is more delightful than the wisdom of age interwoven with the exuberance of youth? Grand Camp provides a weekend filled with quality time for grandparents (or grand-friends) and grandchildren to make memories together at Friedenswald. This weekend camp will include times of storytelling, guided conversations, art projects and time in nature.
This weekend is programmed with school aged children (K-6th grade) in mind. If you would like to have older or younger children attend please inquire. Though there is scheduled input and activity times, grandparents are the primary caregivers of the grandchildren they bring. Please note that the program runs from Friday afternoon through Saturday supper.
Lisa Weaver will be offering input. The theme this year is “Walking with Jesus.” She will share stories from long ago and around the world, and lead participants through simple experiences that can be adapted and revisited at home.
Note: Registrations via our on-line portal should be made with the grandparent/grand friend as the “parent”.
