Is your schedule ridiculously full, but you desperately need some time away? Could your outlook on life be a whole lot better if you made time to refresh your mind? If you need a getaway with the girls, this is the perfect fall weekend retreat! Call some friends and fill a cabin, or come alone and meet new friends!
Relax with home-cooked meals and the beauty of God’s creation. Be refreshed and renewed as you worship together with other women and discover how to experience the life God planned for you!
Our speaker in 2022 was Tawnya Smith. Here’s a little info about Tawnya:
I write songs that reflect a shared human experience and need of the soul. That sounds pretty lofty, but in reality they are lifted from the walls of our homes, from daily conversations, and persistent wars within and around us. They are etched from inside dark places, and bursting with healing out of empty graves. From mothering battles and unmet expectations, to sitting with others in their pain and faithfully loving someone with no control of the outcome. From celebrating what is good to seeing purpose in the mundane. I aim to write the truest thing I know in light of the most beautiful Beauty there is. The backdrop is a kind, merciful Savior, Jesus, who transcends all of our human experiences, and yet sits with us in the midst of them with hope. This points us to the Kingdom of God right now, with a sure hope for a full future consummation.
I live in the beautiful north-woods of Wisconsin with my husband and three children. We serve full-time at a year-round Christian camp Forest Springs Camp & Conference Center, where we love to help others engage God in His creation and His Word.

We also have a yearly craft you can do for $5 or less! Feel free to bring crafts, games. or other activities to do if you would like.
Housing is dormitory and cabin style. Only bottom bunks will be assigned to campers. You have an opportunity to make roommate requests on your registration form, and we do our best to honor those. However, we do reserve the right to make changes as necessary. Also, we usually try to keep groups together that are coming from the same places, and spread people out so you are usually only with people you know.
Most people will have twin sized bottom bunks, so bring sheets for those and all other bedding you would like, plus a towel as we don’t provide those!
We also have handicap accessible lodging for any campers who have a legitimate physical limitation. Please specify any such limitations on your registration, otherwise we cannot guarantee that we will be able to accommodate your needs once 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.
