Whether you’re looking for a weekend of spiritual renewal and connection with others at our Women’s or Men’s Retreat or you would like a place to explore your creativity with a weekend of crafting or learning a visual art technique, Camp Friedenswald has a retreat for you! Our retreats focus on renewing the whole person – mind, body, and spirit. Take a break from the hectic day-to-day, “unplug” from the many demands on your time, and experience the peaceful woods.

Presenter: Cyneatha Millsaps, Worship Leader
Join us to hear the voices of other women, and find your own in their stories.
We will lift up women’s voices that go unheard or ignored by our world and our churches. Cyneatha Millsaps will lead worships where women from different backgrounds and experiences share their stories of faith – honestly and authentically. In addition to camp activities (pontoon boat rides and nature hikes), we also hope to bring together workshops focused on finding new ways to talk together about issues of our day.

Enjoy the beauty of autumn with print-making!
Develop your skills no matter what level, in the warm company of others in the peaceful woods of Camp Friedenswald. We’ll be learning print making using the gelatin print process which results in monotypes (single image prints), and exploring the beauty of the autumn colors around us.
Work, play and reflect in the company of kindred souls!
