There will be interactive education for all age groups (toddlers! elementary, middle school, high school, young adults and adults, see our last Newsletter) including:

Celebrate Marriage!
Have fun together with other couples, celebrate the beauty of marriage, and spend quality time with your spouse at Camp Innabah! Free Babysitting included! (~2 hours/day)

Create opportunities to deepen your relationship with your spouse through fun and challenging activities. (Activities do not involve strenuous physical/outdoor activities.)

Program will include guest speakers, cafe-style discussions, and plenty of time for couples to spend time by themselves or with other couples. Participants can choose to attend their topics of interest, including: Parenting Best Practices, Spice up Your Marriage, Language for Tough Times, and more.
–Facilitated by Jana and Kester Wilkening (Looking for older couples to help facilitate/ speak)
The Celebrate Marriage track has been postponed to a later program.

Dream Catchers (Ages 2-7)

Bring your whole family for a winter adventure! The little ones will enjoy a relaxed schedule, plenty of play time, hands-on activities, and sledding (weather permitting!). We will even have babysitters so that the parents can have a break from their energetic little bundles of joy, and have a chance to socialize and relax. The option to stay at a nearby hotel will appeal to parents with young kids who prefer more private and comfortable accommodations.
–Led by Laurel Nakai and Sally Sayre (additional help welcome)

Building Community Together
A program aimed at building strong communities wherever we are. Agenda to follow.
-Led by Gregg Noll and Sue Stoia

Looking forward to a wonderful Winter Retreat!
