Camp Tekoa Registration Form 2021
It is time to register for our 2021 Labor Day Family Retreat!
This is a great chance for fellowship, fun, and discipleship between St. Andrew's UMC, SouthPark Church, and Cokesbury UMC!
There are opportunities to zip line, climb the tower, play in the lake, canoe/paddle boat, swamp canoes, play disc golf, play volleyball, play field games, do the rope swing, have family game night, a movie night for the kids, have an ice cream party, enjoy campfires, and more!
There will also be times for devotion, worship, and reflection, times to relax in the rocking chairs and chat with your friends (new and old), share in meals together, shop at the Tekoa store, and give back to Camp Tekoa with a service project!
This retreat is worth every penny!
Here are a couple changes for 2021:
1. Meals: After many conversations and much debate, we have decided to move to Camp Tekoa cooking all of our meals for the foreseeable future. Fellowship while preparing meals, has long been a vital part of this weekend, but we feel having Tekoa staff prepare meals is the best move at this time. There will still be lots of opportunities to fellowship with friends new and old!
2. Price: The price increase for 2021 is due to a few factors. The first being that we are having camp prepare our food for us! The second is due to changes in the way Camp Tekoa now does weekend retreat rentals. We have long been "grandfathered" in with the old pricing structure, but it is time to be fair to camp and adhere to the new pricing structures.
3. Activities: There are many activities we can participate in for free at camp and those will all still be on the schedule (as well as available for you to enjoy anytime). However, there are a number of activities we must pay Camp Tekoa to have open for us. This schedule has been adjusted slightly through the years, but truth be told, there are times we pay for activities to be open and few if any people participate. So on this years registration, you will be asked to indicate which of these activities your family is interested in. Our schedule (and the amount of time for these activities) will be dependent on what the group is interested in. Example: Last year we moved to just having one tower time open, because we were paying $200 an hour for the first 2 hours, and at times only having 3- 4 climbers max during that time. Ultimately, the schedule may not change much from past years, we just figure it is time to make sure we are paying for activities that folks actually want!
4. Committees: With Tekoa cooking meals, there will be too many people to serve on committees! But that doesn't mean we won't need help planning and implementing the weekend! Please indicate below if you will be willing to serve on a committee!
