One in a Minion Winter Retreat

Check-in time is around 6:00 pm, or whenever you arrive.   A light supper consisting of hamburgers, hotdogs and hot sausages, chips and dessert is served between 6:30 and 7:00.  Make sure you include your meat choice on your reservation form.  We ask that each family bring a snack/dessert and drink to share.  We munch on these goodies all weekend!  Around 7:15 we will gather and a YoLiJWa staff member will welcome us and review all the activities the camp has to offer as well as some guidelines for our stay.  A short program will follow and then free time.

Saturday, it’s rise and shine for a delicious breakfast.  Some people say all they do is eat at camp, Brian, the head-cook, does feed us well.  There are some scheduled events on Saturday, late morning we break into age appropriate groups for a time of fellowship and then gather again in the afternoon for a brief time.  The rest of the day is spent enjoying the camp and each other.  After dinner, we come together for a fun-filled Saturday evening program.  You won’t want to miss it!

Both boys and girls dorms are available for families to stay together if they wish.  There are two bathrooms on each floor and they are marked accordingly.  There are 11 hotel rooms available on a first come first pay basis.  The cost for the rooms is in addition to the weekend cost.  If you choose to stay in a hotel room, please bring your own sheets and towels.  Kids up to high school age are free if they attend our church, Sunday School, or youth group on a regular basis.

Several years ago we were snowed in, but whether we have snow or not, the winter retreat is a wonderful time of fellowship.  God always seems closer at Camp YoliJWa.

Our theme this year is “You Are One In A Minion.”  Just as no two snowflakes are alike, neither are God’s children.  He has created each of us in His likeness, yet with a uniqueness all our own.
