Husband & wife considering something together.

Highlands Ministries Camp for Couples

May 13-14, 2016

Bristol, Virginia

Who: married or engaged couples

Cost: $199 per couple.

Do you have a vision for your family? We are inviting ten couples to come May 13-14, 2016 for a time of teaching, conversation, and a great deal of fun in the home of Highlands Ministries President, Eric Owens, in Bristol, Virginia.

Steve & Kara Murphy (creators of HomeWise podcast), and pastor Laurence Windham will be the teachers, and the focus will be on getting and maintaining a family vision.

The registration fee of $199/couple covers your camp registration and meals from Friday dinner through Saturday lunch. Accommodations are not included (there are several nearby hotels and a variety of Bed & Breakfasts and vacation rentals in the area).

Couples Camp with Highlands MinistriesWhat is the schedule?

Camp will be Friday, May 13th (3:00 pm) through Saturday, May 14th (4:00 pm). We encourage couples to make plans to stay through Sunday, May 15 and enjoy worship and dancing with Saint Peter Presbyterian Church as they celebrate Pentecost. We have yet to have any campers regret staying for the extra day. Worship is a wonderful way to wrap up this weekend of teaching and conversation.

Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions.  We look forward to seeing you.

What about childcare?

Children — though we affirm with great vigor that they are a blessing — are not invited, and childcare is not provided. Nursing babies, however, are always welcome.

What about meals?

Your meals, Friday dinner through Saturday lunch, will be provided. If you have any food restrictions, let us know and we’ll do our best to accommodate your needs.
