A Deep Breath of Crisp Autumn Air

Our Fall Women’s Retreats at Camp Lebanon are refreshing and inspiring, offering incredible opportunities for fellowship, instruction, and worship.  Treat yourself to this delightful experience on the north shores of Cedar Lake, during one of the most beautiful times of the year.

Intentional & Impactful

Women’s Retreats fill quickly each fall for good reason. Each weekend features gifted guest speakers, powerful worship, and relevant workshops, plus outdoor activities and craft projects led by our team of staff and volunteers.  Each year’s theme is planned intentionally to impact the lives of our guests, to challenge them in their faith walk, and to provide resources for further growth throughout the year.  Best of all, the retreats are served out in the generous love of Christ by Camp Lebanon’s women’s ministries staff who love to welcome old and new friends to fall retreats!

Connections with new and old friends

Retreat Highlights

Unleash your creative and active sides with an incredible array of crafts and activities available throughout the retreat.  Choose your own adventure – hike, zipline, play laser tag, or even glide out into Cedar Lake on a canoe or kayak.  Engage your creativity and attend one of our many crafting sessions throughout the weekend, led by any of our talented volunteers – create something that you can bring home with you to remember the weekend.  Everything is optional, but it’s all The Funnest Fun!  Activities and craft details will be available soon!
