“Playing & Living Joyfully” this summer at…MN Conference Sponsored Youth Camps! www.pilgrimpoint.org
1st Annual 1st UCC Retreat to Pilgrim Point – All Generations welcome! Save July 22-24, 2011 and RSVP with interest now to ensure bed capacity!
Pilgrim Point Camp is our MN Conference UCC Camp on Lake Ida near Alexandria. Historically the camps have been tailored to youth and special interest camps. While some of the traditional conference camps will continue, there now are opportunities for congregations to do week or weekend retreat camps.
An opportunity to introduce many to the facility. In addition to the programming offered by the camp, volunteers are stepping forward to lead vespers, programs, etc. This will be a wonderful retreat (or, Advance as some would say) for First UCC friends and members of all generations to gather together in a beautiful and spiritual setting.
We reserved July 22-24 (Friday dinner-Sunday noon) for the lodge (http://www.pilgrimpoint.org/?page_id=73), N. Shore Cabin, and the campground.
It is a camp (not luxury!), but is comfortable, clean, and includes a dining hall, as well as, a common area in our lodge with sofas, game tables, kitchen, etc. It is on a point extending into the middle off the lake, with waterfront activities (including lifeguards) and a large recreational area.
This will be affordable (lodging @ $15/night plus reasonable meals with scholarships available if needed). We have also applied for an Outdoor Ministries Grant to offset some expense.
More detail to come, but looking for initial show of hands/interest for you/your families as leaders… Please email me to indicate interest, how many might attend, and any comments or questions. [email protected]
We will need volunteer help as well.
