WHY AND WHAT? God’s created world is a beautiful place, but the ethical landscape of the secular world is a barren and weary path. People long for the cool shade of Jesus, and we want Camp Barakel to be an oasis—providing shade and “Living Water.”

Barakel’s 350 acres await you. The program will be fun, and you can choose between being relaxed and being exhausted.

Our SPEAKER for 2020 is Joseph Berkobien.

WHO AND WHEN? Invite a friend, or come by yourself and be a friend. This event is designed for single people in the first decade after high school (though we welcome ‘early marrieds’ and ‘thirtysomethings’ too). The retreat will begin Friday evening and continue unhurried through the Sunday noon meal.

HOW MUCH? The fee is $75 if you are a full-time college student, $95 if you are not. We hope the price break will encourage our poorer friends to get a group and come! $50 of your fee should be sent in with your registration form—the balance is due one week prior to the retreat. If you are unable to attend and let us know at least one week prior to the event we will refund your deposit.
