Event Details

As we emerged from a year of social distancing the attendance for the 2021 CCIW FALL WOMEN’S RETREAT was down. However, the spirit was high, and everyone agreed that our keynote speaker, Vicky Woolridge, Decatur, IL, was outstanding. In fact, she was so inspiring that she has been invited back for the 2022 CCIW Women’s Retreat to address the theme Mothers and Others.

 As has been the tradition this event provides a flexibility of scheduling that allows the participants to decide what works best for them. The leadership team gathers on Friday to begin set up and preparation to receive others.  If it best suits your travel arrangement, you may also arrive after 6 PM to enjoy the beauty and the serenity of the Camp Walter Scott and spend the night. The cost for Friday night accommodations is $20.00.  On Friday, there will be no scheduled activities and dinner is on your own.

On Saturday, activities of the retreat will begin with a continental breakfast and registration at 9:00 AM. Throughout the day, we will explore our theme MOTHERS AND OTHERS with our keynote speaker Vicky Woolridge and other leaders as we explore scriptures, make crafts, pray for and with one another and more. The evening will conclude with dinner and the evening program that will focus on the strength of women and the Divine Feminine.   Some will leave after vespers and others will stay as we conclude our time together with worship and a meal on Sunday morning. We will be taking a special offering for the ministries at Camp Walter Scott.

Length of participation is not the only choice available for participants. When you register you will be asked to select your accommodations.  You may stay in a cabin, in the retreat house, in a yurt or hogan, or you may choose to commute from your home or an area motel room that you have booked on your own. Accommodations are available in Effingham and Watson.

With Covid still a societal issue, we want to be sensitive to health concerns related to COVID 19 and the desire to provide a safe environment for all participants.  Those who have been vaccinated have the option to choose if they will wear a mask for the event. Those who have not been vaccinated are encouraged to wear a mask at all times except when actively eating or drinking. Everyone will be asked to wear a mask when we cannot maintain social distance.  Everyone will be asked to provide a negative Covid test within 48 hours of the event.
