First UMC is excited to offer an Overnight Retreat for Young Adults and Families with young children. This retreat is open to any person over the age of 18 all the way up through the parents of elementary aged children (singles, couples, families, etc.)  We’re intentionally trying to cast a wide net to provide fellowship, worship, and ministry opportunities for congregants and members who have young children and/or are young adults.

This overnight retreat will be at Camp Overlook (about 1 hour from Charlottesville) and run from around 4pm on Friday, May 10 through 2pm on Saturday, May 11.

There are no anticipated costs for retreat participants and meals (dinner, breakfast, and lunch) will be provided.

We are encouraging those with children to bring them! There are plenty of rooms available for families, lots of spaces for small kids to play (inside and out) - and Lara Upton along the Nurture Ministry Team have already started to plan and discuss providing childcare assistance at camp!

The goals of this retreat are to provide a time of fellowship, worship, and ministry engagement for Young Adults and Families with young children. If you have any questions, please contact Rev. Phil Woodson.
