PEAKS & VALLEYS CAMP

June 9.-15. 2019

A refreshing week for body, soul and spirit! 

What to expect

This week is for anyone who loves the great outdoors, has an open mind and heart and wanting to grow deeper in their personal relationship with Jesus. All of us are going through different seasons in our lives; sometimes it feels like we’ve just reached the top of a mountain, and at other times we may be deep down in the valley losing our focus and purpose. We want this week to be an encouraging and challenging timeout to gain new perspectives for our daily lives!

Exciting outdoor activities like, hiking, climbing, high ropes course, sea-kayaking, and sightseeing historical villages will fill our days! You don’t need to be overly fit, however, it will be helpful if you can manage a 3-4 hour hike. Since not everybody is into the more adventurous activities, we will split up up in two groups on some days according to the different interests. 

This year, Damien & Gudrun Reeves from the Torchbearer Centre Champfleuri in France will be our guest speakers for the spiritual inputs. After breakfast, we will usually start our days off with a devotional time with Gudrun and Damien will have another input either during the days or in the evenings. Together we want to reflect on how personalities in the bible dealt with ups and downs in their lives and how God is bringing new perspectives into our lives, especially also in difficult times…

We will also not miss out on time to simply relax, enjoying the fellowship, singing, playing games and reflecting on some epic experiences we’ve had!

The camp will be in english and german, although all session with Damien & Gudrun will be english.

Accommodation

We will be a group of maximum 16 people and everyone is sharing a bed room with 3-5 others. Sharing life aside from the daily programs, including cooking meals in smaller teams, will also be an essential part of our experience together, so come prepared 😉
