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.
April 8-9 Register
Grandparent/friend should register youth.
Cost: Registration fee per person $105, Saturday night lodging $50
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 while the program runs from Friday afternoon through Saturday supper, the option for an additional night of lodging is available.
Lisa Weaver will be offering input drawing upon her co-authored book Let the Children Come to Me. 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. Each family unit registered for the weekend will receive a copy of this accessible resource that encourages further engagement across generations.
Note: Registrations via our on-line portal should be made with the grandparent/grand friend as the “parent”.

Connect with the land and life through a weekend retreat centered on restoring healthy relationships with all of creation. Take time to slow down, walk the paths, paddle the water, and participate in activities and practices aimed towards the restoration of soil, soul, and society. Optional activities will provide opportunities to connect more deeply with the land, heal body and soul, and foster intentional conversations.
