Registration Deadline: Wednesday, April 26th

All ladies from newborn to senior citizen are invited to Trail Ridge Camp’s 2023 Mother/Daughter Retreat!  This retreat is jam-packed with lots of camp activities, good fellowship, and four encouraging chapel sessions.  You won’t want to miss this fun and uplifting weekend!
What happens at the Mother/Daughter Retreat? 
Weather permitting, you'll have an opportunity for activities like archery and BB guns, enjoying group hikes, boating on the lake, and crafts. Along with all the fun, we serve up 5 wonderful meals throughout the weekend, and will once again have a specialty coffee station available on Saturday.  The highlight of the weekend is the four enriching chapel sessions that will be spent with some singing and some time to study God's Word.  All of the activities encourage quality mother/daughter bonding time and fellowship with other attendees.  Attire for this event is casual, although you are welcome to wear something a little fancier with your hat at the Big Hat Breakfast!
