Forever Changed

2020 Retreat Theme

Discover what the Bible says about our mind's role and how it can be renewed to achieve permanent personal transformation.

Uncover the lies we believe about who God is and re-align our understanding of Him with Biblical truth.


And learn to live the abundant life that God has purposed for us!


How do you prefer to unwind?

Guided Hikes

Do you love getting outdoors and enjoying nature? If so, the trails of Camp Squeah are always a popular activity. There are trails for all skill levels and preferences. Join a Squeah staff member on a guided hike or head out with a group of friends using a self-directed trail map. Supportive footwear is highly recommended.

Lava Bead Bracelets

If you’re looking for a fun DIY or handmade gift idea, join us in this beginner friendly workshop on ‘how-to’ make your own lava bead bracelet. Experiment with different colors, textures, and beads that sparkle! The lava beads can even be infused with essential oils!

Felt Art

Using a combination of wet felting and needle felting, join us as we learn how to create a beautiful masterpiece out of colored wool. You will learn how to create texture and detail in your design. Come, be inspired, and try something totally new that looks more complicated than it actually is!

Campfire with Marshmallows


Come keep those toes warm by the fire! Escape outside, embrace the fresh air and enjoy some good company. Roasting marshmallows is always optional - but who doesn’t like a sweet treat!?

Craft Corner


Do you have a small craft project that you want to work on, but never seem to find the time? The craft corner is a place to connect, keep your hands busy, and relax. Bring whatever project you are working on and share what you love to do with friends who share the same passion.

Silent Auction


Always a fun and friendly bidding competition!  If you would like to give, now is the time to start collecting or working on those special goodies. Proceeds will go towards a woman in need. We want to provide the best quality items for our silent auction. To help us achieve this, please only donate new items or high-quality handmade crafts. Baked goods are also welcome!
