Each fall, Wonder Valley Christian Camp hosts a retreat just for women. This overnight event features inspirational speakers, worship time, fellowship, great food, crafts and activities. Fall is beautiful in The Valley and this is a great chance to bring some of your friends, unwind, and re-charge your batteries.
Wagon Ride, Cave and Campfire
We’ll enjoy a wagon ride Friday night to the Wonder Valley Cave and a short tour of the Pioneer Camp. If you're not up to that much activity, there will be an option to remain at the main camp for crafts.
Later we'll enjoy supper and worship in the great outdoors. Campfire, stories, s’mores and more!
