About the Fall Retreat
We pray that you will feel God’s presence this week-end. Hopefully, you will take time to relax and enjoy God’s beauty in creation, which is in abundance at Camp Walter Scott.
Learn and Worship
We will have Bible study and keynote sessions on Saturday. We will share in Evening Vespers around the campfire. Our prayer is that your soul is refreshed and strengthened in our time together.
