A Very Capers Christmas - Family Retreat

Correction: Retreat dates will be Friday, December 11th through Sunday, December 13th. Updated pricing included below.

Bring your family to Camp Capers and cozy up to the fire with a mug of hot cocoa, make and decorate Capers’ Christmas Cookies, create a family Advent wreath, sing Christmas carols around the campfire, and get crafty in arts & crafts making Christmas tree ornaments. Learn more about the season of Advent and Christmas and how we, as Episcopalians, prepare for and celebrate the birth of Jesus. Other activities will include snowball fights, snowman building, ugly sweater contests, and more!

We’ll take care of the cooking and clean up, while your family gets to make their own holiday memories. So, pack your bags and sign up for A Very Capers Christmas Family Retreat!

Each day will conclude with an end-of-day prayer service called Compline and optional evening activity like Lawn Games, Bring-Your-Own-Board-Game Hour, Campfire and S’mores, and more.

Staying safe and healthy is our #1 goal. Families will sign up for activities ahead of time, and receive your own specialized schedule, reserving activities for one family at a time to enjoy. Don’t forget to bring your masks and any board games or cards you may want to play while at Camp Capers! Need to stay connected? Wireless internet hotspots are available around camp, to allow guests to "work from camp."

Throughout the retreat, comprehensive health and safety guidelines will be in place to protect our guests and camp staff. Wearing fabric masks will be required inside all buildings (except family's accommodations), only members of the same household will share lodging, physical distancing will be observed, as well as proper hand hygiene, respiratory etiquette, and sanitization of shared spaces.
