Fall Family Retreat

Retreat and Refuel

in the Sacramento Mountains

October 18-20, 2019

As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.

Joshua 24:15

This year will be the 16th annual CAPE Fall Family Retreat. Come help us celebrate this great milestone!  We designed this weekend to balance fellowship, inspiration, information, fun, interaction, and even rest and relaxation!

We are families encouraging families, and we want to make sure every family has the information and encouragement they need to follow the Lord. We also want the opportunity to become better acquainted, build friendships, and learn how to serve you and your family more effectively. The time together is always blessed and is a great time to recharge halfway between the CAPE annual conventions.

There will be a fabulous program for all of the children (who are able to be away from Mom and Dad) that will run concurrently with all the scheduled adult sessions. This program teaches the children biblical truths, as well as provides a weekend full of entertainment and fun! The teens who attend have always been a great help with the children’s program and find themselves enjoying every minute. Any teen is also welcome to attend the sessions with their parents. It is our policy to require all older children to be with their parents if they do not wish to assist with the children’s program.

The children’s program is designed and supervised entirely by a teenaged homeschooled youth accountable to the CAPE Board, and is similar to a weekend of Vacation Bible School. It will include music, lessons, crafts, interactive stories, snacks, and games.
