Come away and rest awhile as you spend a weekend at Sky Lake free of the distractions of the outside world. Enjoy the company of fellow Christian women as you take advantage of the various activities that will be offered. Dine on healthy and delicious meals prepared by our kitchen staff. Read a book, knit, or even nap by the fireplace in Riley Lodge. Be inspired by your new prayer journal. Go home rejuvenated.
During each activity session, there will be a mild and a wild option from which to choose. Mild options will be more subdued, while the wild options will most likely increase your heartbeat! The cost of most activities is included in your registration fee, however some options will require a small additional fee at time of service. The fee will be for art supplies, floral supplies, jewelry, massage, etc. This “a la carte” fee is to keep the cost of registration down. You will receive a list of activities with any additional fees (payable to the instructor) prior to the retreat.

We have a long list of things that we absolutely love about camp here at Sky Lake, but at or near the top of our list is definitely the joy that comes from helping youth connect with one another. To help create and foster those connections beyond summer, we’re putting together a few gatherings from autumn to spring. These S’more Time Gatherings are geared toward youth in grades 6-12 and are open to individual youth and youth groups alike. Best of all they’re free!
S’more Time Gatherings will be held in (or around) Founders’ Lodge at Sky Lake on the following Saturdays:
November 4 from 2:00-4:30pm
January 6 from 2:00-4:30pm
March 24 from 2:00-4:30pm
Each gathering will feature intentional get-acquainted activities, large-group activities, small-group discussions, worship, and of course s’mores! While not required, reservations are greatly appreciated (so we know how many people we need to plan for, how to get a hold of leaders in the event of inclement weather, etc.)
Q: Are the S’more Time Gatherings only open to Sky Lake campers?
A: Nope! We welcome youth whether they’ve been a long-time Sky Laker, attended camp somewhere else, or have never been to camp!
Q: Do you have to be United Methodist to attend?
A: Of course not! You’re welcome at Sky Lake regardless of what church you attend, what state you live in, or whether you actually like s’mores or not.
Q: I’m not part of a youth group, can I still attend?
A: Absolutely! We’ll connect you with a group for the gathering.
