Spiritual Theme:

Fusing Families

In a culture that is constantly defusing and disrupting family ties this is an opportunity to strengthen our families spiritually, mentally, emotionally and physically through recreation and nature.  Step away from the rat-race and invest in your family!

$225.00 / family (This includes a $25 registration fee non-refundable and $200 for event)

Camping / lodging, rental of equipment (bikes, kayaks, boats, inner tubes and white water rafting) will be your own expense.

 

 

 

 

What to bring:

-  Clothes for warm and cold weather (even in July there is still a lot of snow in the higher elevations and weather can change very quickly)
-  Good hiking shoes, rain gear, hat (sun and warm/winter), swimsuit, water shoes
-  All  camping necessities
-  Own food (and some to share at evening campfire fellowship)

-  Bikes, kayak, raft, inner-tube for floating (rental of recreational gear in Apgar Village if you don't have your own)
