Nov. 10-12, 2006
"Growing Up with C.S. Lewis (and Staying Young with Jack!)"
Rest your body... ...Engage your mind!
If you're looking for an enriching and restful weekend in the company of seekers and Christians of many traditions who share an interest in the life and legacy of C.S. Lewis, this is the conference for you.
In the intimate woodland setting of Camp Allen Retreat and Conference Center, learn more about how Lewis used the realm of Narnia and fantasy literature to communicate the reality of the Gospel to young and old alike.
Nestled in a beautiful 900-acre setting, this retreat will offer insightful and engaging speakers, meaningful worship, dramatic performances, and delightful and relaxed fellowship, along with opportunities for solitude, woodland walks, shared readings, music-making and great dining experiences. Canoeing, hiking, horseback riding and other outdoor activities will also be available.
Music and other forms of artistic expression will also be featured throughout the weekend, concluding with a service of worship on Sunday morning.
The weekend promises a feast for the heart, mind, and imagination. Come join us as we visit with Lewis and explore the wonderful world of Narnia, and consider his rich legacy.
What to bring: A hunger for truth, curiosity, honest questions, a desire for meaningful fellowship, and a healthy appreciation for the simple value of rest and recreation. If this describes you, why then just “Bring yourself!”
