July 14-17, 2014 Grand Camp
"Goodly Habits for Inhabiting the Habitat"
Attention Grandparents, Elementary Kids, and Middle School Youthy Types: You are hereby encouraged to seriously consider joining us at Epworth by the Marsh... I mean, SEA for an intergenerational retreat of global proportions. We will learn. We will eat with utensils. We will frolic. We will disagree. We will eat without utensils. We will commune with decapod crustaceans. We will sing. We will be annoyed by the singing of the other generation (But, we will all joyfully sing, anyway - I mean it!) Mostly we will celebrate the beauty of the earth and talk about why it's our job to take care of it. We will have mega-fun. I promise. -Andy
