Join us for “Down on the Farm” Feather Sound Church Family Retreat March 18-20, 2021

 

Registration is Closed

We have reached capacity, hope you can join us next time! 

Rustle up your family and join your church family for a few days of fun and fellowship on location at the beautiful and rustic Camp Impact in Okeechobee, Florida, less than a two-hour drive from church.

 

This is an opportunity to spend quality, device-free time in a beautiful park-like setting getting close to nature and each other. It’s a time to strengthen relationships and grow in our faith together, as a church family.

 

Daily activities will include group meals, prayer sessions, coordinated group activities and the first annual Feather Sound Church’s Got Talent event.  So brush up on your singing, dancing, clogging or even baton twirling - everyone has a talent to share.

 

The camp is very spacious and all dining and group teachings will be held in a 12,000 sq. foot open-air pavilion so social distancing will not be a problem.

 

There are several accommodation choices.  For those who like to camp, there are plenty of beautiful locations to pitch a tent, stretch a hammock between a few trees, or even sleep under the stars.  You can drive your RV or camper and pick a spot close to all the activity.  Cabins will also be available and make a good home away from home for a few families willing to share. Two cabins will be designated for any individuals (singles) who attend, one for women and one for men. If you would rather stay off-property, there are a few motels in the area and we are in the process of securing a discounted rate (at your own cost).

We’re keeping the cost low but if you have any issue, please let a church leader know and we can accommodate you or your family.

 

Lastly, can you spare some time to help with a few work days at Camp Impact?  If so, consider coming one or two days early (Tuesday, March 16 and/or  Wednesday March 17) to assist with a variety of projects as they continue to improve their facility for other churches and organizations to enjoy. It would be a huge blessing!
