The Great Outdoor Camp Retreat
 
We had a great time at TSAHope’s 1st Great Outdoor Camp Retreat held at Darlington Provincial Park in Clarington, ON from June 9-11, which kicked-off with a campfire at our group site on Friday evening.
 
Fantastic weather helped us enjoy Saturday’s old fashioned games/races and scavenger hunt with both kids and adults participating, topped off with a huge candy scramble.  Later everyone enjoyed free time to explore the park’s beautiful beach and hiking trails, with some even indulging in ice cream from the park’s store.
 
We gathered back at the group site on Saturday evening for a BBQ meal together and awesome fellowship around the campfire, complete with skits and songs.
 
Sunday morning featured “Church in The Woods” where Pastor Jason shared with us about the importance of bearing one another’s burdens and to be mindful of others who have yet to experience God’s supportive church family.
 
Thank-you to all who participated in the prep and plans leading up to the weekend, as well as those who volunteered to help throughout our time together.  We have received many positive messages which indicates that this should be an annual event, moving forward.
