Last year, we planned a weekend outing for pastors and their families at Great Wolf Lodge at a deeply discounted price. It was ultimately opened to any family in the district. It was a fun time, relaxing, meeting folks from across the district and visiting with new friends. This summer, we have reserved a block of rooms at Shawnee State Park Lodge near Portsmouth for anyone in the district. Campsites will also be available, but cannot be reserved as a block. Check in will be Friday, June 15 with a campfire, s'mores and singing. Saturday morning there will be a complimentary breakfast and the opportunity to explore the trails and lakes within the park. There are a limited number of rooms available.
You can reserve your room online. If you register BEFORE MAY 1, you will only pay $50 per room. After may, the cost will increase to $75 per room. It's still a great bargain either way. Breakfast at the lodge on Saturday morning will be included.
Campsites are also available, but you must make your own reservation through Shawnee State Park. Campers will have access to the lodge facilities at a discounted price. If you reserve a campsite, please let the office know so we can include in the count for breakfast.
