The WHY behind the Ladies Retreat
Updated: Jan 23
The Ladies Retreat brings ladies together from diverse backgrounds. The setting at Camp Illiana can help ladies bond with each other, and discuss many things in depth. The retreat is carefully planned by dedicated experienced staff with a heart to see all the attendees take the next step with Jesus.
A spiritual retreat is an integral part of the Christian community and a life following Jesus. A retreat is an ideal way to get closer to God. It can help a person to rediscover and trigger a greater faith. A retreat shouldn’t necessarily be a solo affair.
Explore these four reasons to consider attending the Camp Illiana Ladies Retreat.
The getaway will take attendees away from the confines of day-to-day living and away from busy, sometimes stressful lives. One way to get closer to God is through prayer. Attendees will have opportunities for time and reflection. Often times retreats like the Ladies Retreat help people to achieve inner peace that only Jesus can bring. This inner peace will help you to eliminate stress. This is very beneficial for the attendees' health.
Attendees bringing along family/friends are helped by spending quality time with each other. They will be able to interact with each other freely. This sometimes helps to improve relationships.
Connect with Nature
This retreat at Camp Illiana will help attendees to connect with nature. As a people of faith, it is important that attendees appreciate and enjoy the many things God has provided us. Connecting with nature could help attendees to be more environmentally conscious, it may prompt them to step back and appreciate everyday things we may take for granted.
A retreat will help attendees to focus on themselves. In the busy lives we lead, most often, people neglect to take care of themselves. Eating good food, eating on time, having food with good company, all will refresh and rejuvenate.
