    Join us for a weekend at camp, and enjoy some time outdoors with friends. We'll have a relaxing weekend among great people, forming relationships and building each other up, and learning a thing or two along the way.

    Activities include snowshoeing, climbing wall, snacks, knitting by the fire, wearing things knitted by the fire, and general hilarity. Skating on the lake, tobogganing, and skiing are always big hits.

  • RENEW - Spiritual Retreat for Women

    April 5-7, 2019               $150 +GST

    Terrie Coombs, Spiritual Care Coordinator

    Advent Lutheran Church, Calgary

    "Spring flowers are in blossom all over. The whole world's a choir - and singing! Spring warblers are filling the forest with sweet arpeggios." - Songs of Solomon

    Spring is a season of renewal and rebirth. It's a time when buds become leaves and flowers; when healing rain washes city streets and falls like grace on parched country fields; when the hard ground beneath us softens to allow shoots of new life to emerge.

    Just as there are seasons outside, so it is also inside us. The gift of spring is a time for cleaning out and making way for fresh posibilities and new commitments. It's a time to revive our senses and expand our horizons. It's a time to begin again.

    Come and join us in our beautiful camp setting on the edge of the lake, sharing our stories, reflecting on the invitations of our hearts, and listening to the sacred words of our Creator.

    "Sacred Journeys"

    with Rev. Fran Schmidt, Saskatoon

    Rev. Fran is the Director of Communication and Development at Lutheran Theological Seminary in Saskatoon.

    Join Pastora Fran Schmidt, former missionary to Peru, who invites you to come along on a Sacred Journey. We will explore how, where, and when Jesus meets us in often unexpected ways, much like how Jesus accompanied the disciples on the road to Emmaus. We will engage our discussion through the lens of Pastora Fran's travels to Peru, El Salvador, Colombia, India and Nepal. If you want to learn about these countries and cultures, and reflect on the places and ways that God has accompanied you in your life's journey, this is the retreat for you!

    Travel/Prayer Journals

    with Rev Deb Kerr, Calgary.

    Deb will lead us in a couple of optional crafts (additional fee applies). She will work with us to make beautiful leather prayer or travel journals for your journeys ($50), or leather crosses/ coasters ($20).

    This weekend is a great way for moms and daughters, sisters, close friends or new acquaintances to spend a weekend with God and each other. Let us cook the meals and clean up while you enjoy time to relax, learn, and laugh.

    With time to enjoy good company, joyful laughter, delicious food, and creative crafts- this will be a weekend you won't want to miss!  We will also offer massages on Saturday afternoon (additional fee applies), and plenty of silliness to go around.

    Take a look at the schedule.
