BASEcamp 2017

As we all know, women can be busy and our minds often full.  We long for significance and we long to make a difference.  While this is often a great pursuit, it can also become a distraction from our primary pursuit, the heart of God.  This weekend away is intended to be a time to refocus & reflect.  The Sunnyside Retreat Centre provides a quiet, serene space, giving an opportunity for community, care & connection.  The setting is calm & gets you away from the everyday routine & responsibilities.

This annual, spring, all-inclusive weekend is perfect for any woman looking for spiritual refreshment.   This is also a great opportunity for churches to build connection among their women.   Whether you come with friends or come by yourself, you will not be alone!
