A Very Capers Christmas - Family Retreat

Share a cozy weekend with your family at Camp Capers. Settle in with a mug of hot cocoa, and decorate Capers’ Christmas Cookies, create a family Advent wreath, sing Christmas songs around the campfire and get crafty while making Christmas tree ornaments. Don't forget to pack your ugly Christmas sweater! Learn more about the season of Advent and Christmas and how we, as Episcopalians, prepare for and celebrate the birth of Jesus.

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.

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.
