You'll find inspirational speakers, praise and worship, ministry and prayer, devotional time, and fun adventure activities or relax on free time.

This retreat is for children 3 years and older with their single parent or grandparent. You'll have time for yourself while the kids have their own teacher during retreat sessions. Miss Bobbi offers age-related interactive Biblical teaching, snacks, crafts and fun activities. The kids will have fun with other kids. You'll have time to build new special memories during free time with the kids!

We will be staying and meeting in the 2-story Long Beach Lodge. The Lodge features nice rooms with bunkbeds and a full bathroom on each floor, with additional bathrooms available nearby.
