Moms & Daughters Retreat

Our goal for this retreat is for you to deepen your relationship with each other and the Lord through new activities, workshops, Biblical teaching, worship, meeting new friends, and so much more.

May 6-7, 2022

Moms and Daughters is an annual retreat focused on strengthening relationships with each other and with the Lord.  It is geared toward moms and daughters in grade school (K-8), but aunts, grandmas, friends, sisters and daughters of all ages are welcome to attend.

We invite you to join us on Friday for activities and a large group session (complete with singing, large group Bible messages and silly games).  Stay all day Saturday for workshops, more worship sessions, free time together, and a themed party.  You are welcome to stay as late as you like and enjoy a campfire Saturday night. You can also decide to stay an additional night if you and your family would like.

We strive for a culture of grace and kindness.  We know that this group is all a bunch of humans trying our best.  We want this weekend to be excellent, but we also want to allow space for relationships, for trying new things, for recharging, and for growing with God.  We think you’ll really love it.

Please indicate any specific camper needs on your online registration and/or notify our registrar (camp@covenantharbor.org) at least 3 weeks in advance so that we may fully accommodate your family.
