DARKE COUNTY – A summer outing in the woods, vacation Bible school, campfire and s’mores, worship service in God’s great outdoors!
The visions these words bring to mind will be part of the retreat at Chenoweth Trails the weekend of Aug. 29 and 30, planned by First Presbyterian Church.
“Getting Back on Track” is the theme of the weekend, designed to give participant a time to reflect, to have fellowship with others, a time free from the “merry-go-round” of everyday life. Hiking, fishing, swimming, corn hole, board games and cards, volleyball, kickball and Frisbee are a few of the possibilities for renewing the soul.
Vacation Bible School will be part of the weekend but children under 18 must be accompanied by an adult. Yurts to provide sleeping along with hot showers brings a little civilization to this beautiful wooded area. Recreation vehicles may be used for overnight, but electricity and water hook up are not available. A primitive tent camping area is also available.
