THRIVE Retreat Available Only at Big Sandy Camp

Women's ministry (Alliance Women) in the North Central District is pleased to partner with Big Sandy Camp!  Individual access to this virtual retreat, THRIVE, ended October 31, 2020, but the opportunity to experience this powerful retreat is not over.

The content is now available exclusively through Big Sandy Camp from November 1, 2020 through February 28, 2021. Groups can register to attend camp and have access to the same worship, seminars, and activities that were offered virtually. There are four sessions, plus an art class, and a fitness class.

One building will house up to eight and the other building up to 12. Please contact our office at 218-426-3389 or to register your group. Prices vary based upon the building used, number of nights, and dates available.

We had an awesome time with all of the ladies at the 2018 Alliance Women’s Retreat! It is always so fun for us to host the ladies, and camp always looks so good when they’re here! If you missed out this year make sure to put the dates down for next year! It is definitely worth it!
