Retreat Program

Are you becoming more aware of distractions in your everyday life that cause you to lose focus? So many times the end of our day isn't the image we had as the day began. While we can't always control how "life" happens each moment, we can rediscover the JOY that comes from seeking God FIRST. We'll look together into this journey of prioritizing our life so that we can joyfully walk the path that is before us. Join your friends and make new ones as we retreat together.

Speaker - Anita Keagy

Anita Keagy founded JoyShop Ministries in 2006 with one simple mission: to inspire people to spend time with God every day through Bible reading and prayer. Since then, she has traveled nation-wide and internationally, sharing her message of seeking God first each day as the key to abundant life and joy. Anita lives in Washington Boro, PA with her husband, Paul, and is the mother of five adult children and 11 grandchildren. We welcome her to Camp Hebron and look forward to our time together!


The retreat will begin at 5:30PM on Friday with registration and a light supper. Our first gathering will be at 7:15PM that evening. Saturday will include a morning session, afternoon session, and an evening session. We will offer electives that you can choose during the afternoon time. Horseback riding is available at Camp Hebron, among other activites on and off site. You are free to be on your own, napping or socializing! If you're a night owl, the late evenings will include time to play games, have a snack, and, of course, more socializing! Dismissal will follow lunch on Sunday. Dress is casual and our atmosphere is very relaxed.


Relax in an all-in-one retreat center featuring motel-style rooms which can accommodate up to four people each. Rooms have one queen size bed, one twin bed, and one twin trundle bed. Linens and towels are provided. If you are unable to fill a room, please check the appropriate box on the registration form to have the registrar match you with roommates. Your payment submission should be based on your desired room capacity (if the capacity is not fulfilled, you will be responsible for the higher rate). Pricing includes five meals, two nights lodging, and activities for the entire weekend.


Directions will be provided to all registrants. Travel time to Camp Hebron is about 70 minutes from Red Lion. If you desire to ride with someone or are willing to provide transportation, please indicate on the registration form. If you volunteer to drive, you will be contacted by the planning committee to make arrangements.
