Refreshment and renewal for foster and adoptive families

The vision for Refreshed Family Camp is clear: Give every foster and adoptive family a “win” together.

Refreshed Family Camp is an experience where the love of Jesus is clear. Connect with God around the campfire or through a conversation with a friend. See God’s care in the epic sunsets overlooking Port Susan Bay. Learn about God’s heart through experiential-based teaching.

Play hard at camp. Swim, zip line, canoe, shoot arrows, compete in field games, or just take a hike on the miles of trails. There’s no shortage of activities to do. Bring your bike and ride to your heart’s content on the 278 acres of God’s creation at Warm Beach Camp and Conference Center.

Rest among friends. Every family at Refreshed Family Camp understands the uniqueness of foster and adoptive family dynamics. Find time to just kick back in a community of people who “get it.” We are all in this together! There is something incredibly encouraging by being with people who understand.

This summer’s theme is “Unshakeable Kingdom.” Allen Denver, Carrie Blaske, and I will be sharing from our own journey about the amazing things God is teaching us. We are all foster and adoptive parents who understand renewed hope under God, who is unshakable. We are excited to share with you!

If you are a foster or adoptive family, join us for Refreshed Family Camp, July 28-31, 2019.

As we pray and prepare, we are making the following promises to you:

  1. Jesus is being lifted up as Lord and Savior.
  2. Families will have opportunities to experience a “win” together.
  3. Recreation, rest, and renewal will be available to everyone.

We can’t wait to see you this year!

It is a lesser-known fact that people with intellectual or developmental disabilities don’t have the same access to community as most populations.
