WOMEN OF THE WOODS
We invite you to join us for this exciting new weekend retreat! From camping basics and orienteering to firearms and leathercraft, we look forward to spending this weekend outdoors. Come and enjoy a weekend away learning new skills, eating great food, and breathing in God's beautiful creation.
While our title may imply roughing it, rest assured that we'll be taking advantage of UPBC's retreat center facility which offers very comfortable accommodations.
Our directors are Tracy Major and Kathy Johnson.
