Bring a spirit of awe and adventure to this time apart amidst God’s fall splendor. Relax and nourish your
body and soul. Explore the Park Rapids area and spend time in the great outdoors, away from the distraction of everyday life. Many of the week’s activities happen in the Lodge at Northern Pines
Camp, utilizing their hotel-like rooms, each with a private bath and comfortable lower beds. Meals are prepared with adult tastes in mind and include a special candlelight dinner with entertainment on the last
evening of camp.

The daily schedule will include a time of morning worship and a study/discussion time. Pastor Rory Swenson, from Burnsville Grace UMC, will be our spiritual advisor. Afternoons are dedicated to field trips,
exploration of the area, opportunities to fish, hike or play golf, and a chance to take part in a service project. Evenings are devoted to group activities and games. Enjoy a week full of good fellowship
with old and new friends; a time to enjoy God’s creation; and a time to grow in our daily walk with God.
