Food:  Eat before you come on Friday night. Other meals will be provided (mostly making our own to save $). Feel free to bring snacks or anything for your own particular dietary needs.

Erick is passionate about the mission of Matthew 28 to multiple disciples. There will also be smaller breakout sessions, worship, small groups, conversation, solitude time, a campfire, and recreation. 

Recreation: Saturday afternoon, there will be time to join in trust & team building games at the camp, spend time on the lake, walk (or ride if you bring your own bikes) on the trails, hang out at Arnold’s Park, or relax in the giant swings or hammocks at the camp.
