Men's Retreats"Men with Tools" Retreat

"Christ is the Mediator, not only between God and man, but between man and man, between man and reality."   ~ Dietrich Bonhoeffer

The Men with Tools Retreat will be led by Kevin Burke, Program Manager for Lutheran Men in Mission.  He strives to help every man have a growing relationship with Christ through retreats, training forums, and sharing his personal experiences. 

This retreat will provide you with a comfortable forum to get away from the stresses of the daily grind and help you focus on the important spiritual aspects of your life.  Gather in comfort for time spent studying the Bible and in fellowship with the guys.

Service work will be an integral part of this retreat.  Enjoy using skills and learning from others, while supporting the ministry of Crossways!

Participants are encouraged to bring their own hand tools to assist with service projects at each camp.

Scrapbooking Retreats

Crossways Scrapbooking retreats give an opportunity for participants to escape the distractions experienced at home, and enjoy hours of uninterrupted time to work on craft projects at camp. Adult participants are invited to bring photograph, papercraft, and scrapbook projects.  Participants enjoy ample project space, fellowship with others, and in some cases, an experienced leader to help answer questions and provide instruction in a Christian setting.

 

Dig out that unfinished craft project and escape to a beautiful, faith-filled setting at one of the camps of Crossways!

 

Come to one of our adult Scrapbooking retreats or join us for our Family Scrapbooking session at Waypost Camp!  Youth ages 10 – 17 are invited to accompany an adult and bring photographs and scrapbook projects. The retreat offers families of all shapes, sizes, and definitions an opportunity to spend time together scrapbooking. Child-care is not provided, and housing is shared with other families. Scrapbook workshops for youth will be available.
