Dear Families,

We are so disappointed not to host your family at Laity Lodge Family Camp this fall.

On the first night of every weekend retreat I welcome families to LLFC, and I always encourage families to enjoy the “space” of LLFC, to connect with God and engage with one another in significant ways. At every retreat we have a schedule and activities to help in that process, but we also make sure that families know that the pressure is off. We don’t want anyone to feel pressure to attend to our agenda.

Instead, guests enjoy the space, take long walks, nap, read a book, and simply spend time together.

LLFC Team, Fall 2020

We hope that this DIY LLFC Retreat experience offers your family the same freedom to create space in your own home. In this box, we have a few ideas for how you can create your own retreat experience. It’s not the same as being in the Frio Canyon, of course, but we hope it gives you a taste.

Here’s how it works:
— Refer to the schedule for what is offered both in this box and online.
— Use what might be helpful to you and don’t use what isn’t.
— Go at your own pace and just enjoy the space.
— Most of all, have fun!

We hope to see you at an LLFC weekend retreat soon.
