We are inside of 2 weeks until our first ever Anchored Family Retreat!! We are so glad that you, your family, and your friends have chosen to join us for this special and unique weekend. With only a couple of weeks until Anchored I wanted to make sure we were all on the same page regarding the details of the weekend and the need to knows before you leave.
Final Payment for Anchored is due this coming Sunday, August 13. Please make sure to drop that off at the church or bring it with you to service this Sunday. You can make all checks payable to Christ Community Church and put Anchored in the memo line. If you have questions about your remaining balance, please either email Caleb Yoder (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Linda Knight (email@example.com) and we can give you and update on where you stand with your balance.
Anchored Registration will open on Friday, August 18 at 4 PM and will stay open until 7 PM. If you are going to be late please let us know ahead of time so that we can make plans to have your registration things in your room, waiting for you upon arrival. Upon arrival you will receive a booklet, t-shirt, and a schedule for the weekend. For those wondering about departure time on Sunday, we will be dismissing by 10:30 AM on Sunday, August 20.
Packing is pretty easy. It will be pretty hot that weekend so prepare for that. Make sure to check weather closer to the time of departure and make sure you pack accordingly. Pack clothes that can get wet, clothes that can get a little dirty, and if you are daring enough to play paintball, pack some clothes that you don’t mind seeing a little paint on. It’s a casual weekend so dress comfortably.
Parents With Children
For parents of little ones: There are no cribs so you will need to make sure to bring a pack n’ play or other travel bed for your little one to sleep in. We will take care of the nursery needs, but you will need to bring whatever necessities your child may need. Please make sure to bring your own diapers, wipes, and any other toys/baby food that your child may need.
Childcare will be provided for the sessions only. Ages 5 and up are invited to be a part of the opening time of games and worship before being dismissed. Ages 4 and under will be cared for the complete duration of the session.
We will be sleeping camp style. Most of the beds are twin bunk beds, with a couple of full beds in each room. Prepare to bring either sheets or a sleeping bag and pillow with you when you come. You will also need to bring your own towels and toiletries.
Woodlands Camp is located at 1242 Old Blue Creek Road, Cleveland, GA 30528. If you plan to use a maps app on your phone, please make sure you download and use the Google maps app only. Apple Maps will lead you astray. The directions to Woodlands Camp are attached if you would rather use those.
If you have dietary restrictions and did not mention that on your registration form, please make sure to let us know those needs as soon as possible so we can pass that information on to Woodlands Camp before we arrive.
If you have any questions about the weekend, travel, packing, or any other areas regarding Anchored, please do not hesitate to CALL or EMAIL Caleb at your convenience. We are so excited! It’s almost here!
