Adam and Eve Retreats
Same Weekend, Same Location, Two Separate Retreats!
April 24-26 , 2020
Cost: $75
Location: Camp Altamons
Deadline to register: April 5 
At this stage, the Adam and Eve retreats are both still "on." This could, of course, change, as recommendations for safety evolve. We have the option of rescheduling the event for fall, and I hope to have a firm decision by 3/31.
Right now, if you intend to attend either retreat, please sign up at this link, but if you haven't yet paid, please withhold your payment until we are closer to the dates. In the event that the retreats are canceled,  we won't have to issue as many refunds. For planning, though, it will be helpful to know who (and how many) are planning to come. 

This year's Adam retreat will focus on "Becoming"--what it means to become a man of God. The Eve retreat theme is still under development, but it will emphasize examples of women's leadership in the Bible and now, and how teenaged girls can live into that same character.

The retreats are independent of each other, though for logistical purposes, they're at the same location. Both retreats will take place April 24-26 at Camp Altamons (near Roanoke), and will include high ropes.The cost for the weekend is $75 (covers housing, meals on Saturday and Sunday morning, and programming costs).
