There will be lots of time for relaxing, hanging out with other guys, playing sports, enjoying nature, sharing, and more. If our April retreat was any indication, this is going to be a fantastic time that you won't want to miss!
Cost is just $125 for the weekend, which is a great deal considered all that is included.
Where will you be a month from now? We hope with us at Gardom Lake Bible Camp!
