South Atlantic District
Labor Day Retreat 2018

You're invited to the 28th WELS-South Atlantic District Labor Day Retreat! 

Started over 25 years ago the LABOR DAY RETREAT has since grown to become a district-wide event, sponsored & planned by laity from all over the South Atlantic District.  This year’s Retreat will be held on September 1-3 at Florida Bible Camp, High Springs, FL, just 30 minutes from I-75 & Lake City or Gainesville, FL.

Florida Bible Camp is situated in 200 beautifully wooded acres near the Santa Fe River in northern Florida. Facilities include 11 air-conditioned cabins, well-equipped bath houses, a large air-conditioned kitchen and dining hall that can accommodate 200 people, an assembly area, a full-size swimming pool, a crafts building, and a large pavilion for games.

The WELS Labor Day Retreat includes opening & closing devotions, Sunday worship w/communion, adult & children’s Bible studies, activities & crafts, game night, campfire sing-along, & a talent show.  There’s also plenty of free time for hiking, canoeing, fishing, birding, swimming, napping!, chatting, & laughing (lots & lots of laughing!). The Florida Bible Camp in North Central Florida is just a short hike to the Santa Fe River. Meals included in the cost of the weekend are Saturday supper, three meals on Sunday, & Monday breakfast & lunch.  This is a wonderful opportunity to gather with other Christians for fun & fellowship!
