Call to Action, Camp Bowen: Adult Retreat 2012

Dear Campers,

Please circulate to relevant distribution channels.

It is that time of the year again, the time when we all get geared up for a nice retreat on Bowen.

Last year’s retreat, though small, was considered by the board and the campers who attended a great success. We had a lot of fun attending the Sunday market, sitting around the fire chatting, hiking and much more.

This years retreat still needs a little bit of planning, but this is where we hope you can come in. We have set aside two possible options for dates on which to hold this year’s retreat. the second to last weekend in August (Friday the 17 to Sunday the 19) or the first weekend in September (Saturday the first to Monday the third). I personally also think that the second weekend in September (Friday the 7 to Sunday the 9) could also be a possibility to save some money assuming rates go down in September.

We also need to arrange solid transportation plans and possible activities. As this is the adult retreat, we feel that your input is valuable in helping us shape this year’s program. This is, in all respects, your retreat.

We have about a month to go before the first dates approach, but in reality, we have little more than two weeks to go before we need to be solidly set in our plans. Below are some questions that I think need to be addressed first:

  1. Dates (See Above). What dates work best for everyone? Is there conferences or any other events on those dates that campers will be attending?
  2. Transportation. Were is everyone coming from? Who needs transportation assistance?
  3. Activities. What should we do?

What are you’re thoughts? Please join the conversation by signing up for the mailing list here or by calling Alex Jurgensen, Community Coordinator at 778-908-0521.

We look forward to hearing your input and seeing you on Bowen.

Yours Truly,

The Camp Bowen Team,
