I think its been years since I saw all your sweet faces!! Gene and I miss you more than you know and I hope I have learned to not take our gathering together regularly for granted ever again!
I have recently had a couple of people ask me about whether or not we are still planning on having a Retreat this year. I sure hope so!! I honestly can't think of a better way to celebrate the end of this lockdown then by getting together in person at Sacramento Camp in the beautiful Sacramento Mountains! I've spoken with Molly at the Camp and we are still on the calendar and they hope to be open for business as well by then.
I'm also aware that for many of you it's hard to think about something that will take place early in the month of June when you're not sure what tomorrow holds. I just wanted to communicate with "my people" that as of the writing of this email, YES! we will still plan on a Retreat.
For those of you who may be under the impression that this is a "camping trip" let me put your mind at ease! The rooms (not tents!) we stay in are very comfortable. Two beds, a bathroom with running water, air conditioning, etc. There may be those who would rather be in a tent and there is room for them but for those of us who like to "rough it" in a hotel room, this place is perfect! We also eat our meals in the dining hall where you will get more food than you'll know what to do with! We start out with Dinner on Friday night, three meals on Saturday and breakfast and lunch on Sunday before heading back to El Paso.
For a couple + 6 meals = $343.00
An individual sharing a room + 6 meals = $171.50
A child 5-19 years old staying with their parents adds $22 per night..
Children 5-12 years old eat for $6 per meal.
Tent camping is $5.00/person/night
RV camping is $25/night
This at least gives you an idea of what you need to set aside to join us. I need to have the amounts paid before we leave since I pay the Camp when we're there.
There is also a bunch of activities that can be enjoyed. Some are free and others cost so we can talk about that face to face hopefully!
As always, please ask me any questions that you may have and I'll do my best to answer them.
Love you and sure look forward to seeing you all very soon.
