Close out the summer with family and friends during Labor Day Family Weekend. Rejuvenate your mind, body, and spirit in a Christ-honoring environment. This weekend is for you, so feel free to take advantage of our family-oriented activities, or slip away and enjoy God’s creation on your own. We can’t wait to see you!
WHAT TO EXPECT
Check-in begins on Friday at 6:00pm, and the retreat concludes after lunch on Monday.
Did you know that worship begins in the home? It’s easy to think that worship can only happen in special places, like your church or at camp. But God says,
“These commandments that I give you today are to be on your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. Tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads. Write them on the doorframes of your houses and on your gates.” (Deuteronomy 6:6-9)
We want to give families a chance to practice this kind of family worship, so in the mornings, we will gather briefly in the Chapel before splitting off by families to read God’s Word and pray.
In the evenings, we will gather in the Chapel for singing and the preaching of God’s Word. Children, aged 0-3 years, can be dropped off at our Nursery, and other young children will be dismissed to Kid’s Corner after singing.
It has been our great privilege to baptize during Labor Day Family Weekend. If you or a loved one are interested in this special sacrament, you can contact our Program Director, Ryan, for more details. Otherwise, we will be holding a short class on baptism during the retreat that you can attend for more information.
The following are options that your family can sign up to participate in:
The Escape Room
The Arrowhead 5K
There are plenty of activities you can do on your own as well:
Waterfront (Swimming and Boating)
Disc Golf Doubles Tourney
The Arrowhead 5K will take place on Monday, September 3 at 9:30am. The entry fee is $25 and includes a t-shirt. The Arrowhead 5K is a run/walk event that takes you on an enjoyable trek though the woods and trails at Arrowhead. Runners and walkers of all skills and speeds are welcome to join. Top finishers in the races will receive a special prize, but all participants will receive a t-shirt and have the satisfaction of contributing to a bright future for Arrowhead, as we use the proceeds to help improve camp. This year, we hope to raise enough money to pay for a camp paintball course. We hope you join us!
When you register, you will be prompted to select a housing preference. If your housing preference is unavailable, you can select an alternative or contact Camp to discuss other options. We also have handicap accessible lodging for any campers with legitimate phyiscal limitations. Please specify any such limitations on your registration, otherwise we cannot guarantee that we will be able to accomodate your needs when you arrive at camp. If you have any unexpected needs, and you’ve already registered, please call ahead as all housing assignments are final and we are unable to rearrange housing once you arrive.
