Mother Daughter Retreat 2015

Fall is the perfect time for a getaway – especially when it is to DuBois Center! Leave the boys at home for this weekend away with the girls.

Mother & Daughter Retreat was designed to bring women closer together, allowing you to reconnect with not only God and nature, but with your loved ones as well. Relax and re-energize your relationships with your daughter, mother, granddaughter, niece, aunt, best friend, or any other special woman or girl in your life! All ages are welcome. It should be noted, however, that most activities are geared for girls age 6 and up.

This year’s retreat will take place from Friday, October 16 through Sunday, October 18. Check in begins at 6:30 on Friday and departure will be by noon on Sunday. Join us for a weekend of great activities, with the price including two nights lodging, four meals, program activities and supplies.

Weather permitting, activities will include archery, canoeing, crafts, worship, music, pontoon boat rides, hiking, hayrides and bonfires. Horseback riding will also be offered for an additional fee of $15 per person for a trail ride or $8 for a guided arena ride, both wonderful experiences to suit any age or experience level

Lodging will be either in Hickory Lodge or in Main Camp Cottages, both clean and comfortable. Register early for your choice of lodging. The cost of the retreat is $107 for adults (18+), $91 for youth and $75 for girls aged 4-11.

Register soon – space is filling up! Our deadline is Friday, Oct. 2. The registration packet can be downloaded here, or download our Fall Activities Brochure for more information on this and other fall events happening at DuBois Center.
