Did you ever sneak past Laity Lodge whispering “shhhhh…” so not to disturb the Laity guests? Ever wonder what it looked like or what those people were doing? If you are looking for an opportunity to enjoy all the things you loved most about LLYC as a past camper or staff and at the same time want to try the retreat center for “adults,” this weekend is for you.  You will enjoy lay witnesses from two staff alumni, rich and deep conversation and interaction with past and current camp staff, and opportunities to explore the Canyon and to enjoy art, power naps, amazing food, and possibly even some group games and skits you won’t forget. 

Bring your closest friends with you. This weekend is not just for alumni, so please invite those you think would love camp too!

Paul will start the art workshop by exploring poetry (absolutely no experience required) and then allow those words to inspire visual creations, making use of found objects as well as the ample materials on hand in the 2-D Studio.
