Fall is in Full Swing
Retreats and Trainings
The weather here in Western Montana has been gorgeous this fall, as we've had sunshine and warmth with no smoke! Of course, good weather makes our retreats and Journey's activities more enjoyable. Even though summer is our season of highest volume, fall is still busy. In addition to Journey, we've hosted multiple retreats, including YoungLife regional leaders, NELA (a youth retreat), and Fiber Friends (a small group of women knitters who have come for many years).
We also try to further staff development through trainings. We sent a few staff to Canada for a mountain bike training through Frontier Lodge; and we hosted a WAFA (Wilderness Advanced First Aid) class for staff, Journey students/interns, and a few local people.
Every year, we host two work weekends--one in the spring and one in the fall--to help with projects around camp. We are so grateful to everyone who comes to serve because maintaining our almost 80-acre property is a huge task! This fall, volunteers, staff, and alumni joined together for two days of work and one day of fun. Some of the projects completed were raking pine needles and cones, painting and staining, cleaning off roofs, pouring a cement sidewalk, oil changes in vans, and winterizing. As a staff, we could not finish all these projects in such a short amount of time without your help. Thank you!
