Love to quilt?  Trying to learn how to quilt?  Are you seeking a supportive community with others?  Camp offers a natural place to relax and learn/practice this colorful art in a supportive environment.  We will take time to sew and piece together our individual projects, as well as enjoy the natural beauty of the camp and some of the festivities at the Sisters Quilt Show.  Throughout the retreat we will also share the fabrics that are woven together in our lives.  Together we will celebrate and strengthen the spiritual threads that bind us together in God.  Head home renewed in body, mind, and spirit.

Morning and evening biblical exploration and discussions are included, as well as Sunday worship.  Accommodations are in Wesley Meadow Lodge, while meals are served in Pioneer Dining Hall.
