The Wonder Retreat – The Movement


Ignite your year with a weekend away

This fall we are stepping out of the routine and heading to Camp Iawah for our annual retreat. Our Wonder Retreat is one of the best ways to meet new friends, have a fresh, wonder filled encounter with Jesus and be inspired to live your life to the full. By getting away from campus/work for a weekend we hope to help you kick start your year with a fresh focus on how to live your life partnered with the Holy Spirit. You will experience the outdoors, worship, have moments to escape for solitude and prayer, play sports, hike through the woods, play volleyball, basketball, archery, canoeing, indoor climb and have a greater understanding of the life Jesus is calling us to live in Ottawa.

October 5/6| Camp Iawah | $130 – registration payment due by September 30th
