Organizers of DiscoveryBound 20s/30s Winter Weekend 2020
DB 20s/30s weekends have a non-judgmental Christian Science atmosphere that is inclusive of everyone and is free from drinking, smoking, using illicit drugs or marijuana. Participants agree to support this healing atmosphere.
There’s nothing like a winter getaway to the beautiful Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore! Spend time together cross-country skiing, sledding down an epic hill, and digging deep into Christian Science topics in front of a crackling fire. Camps Leelanau-Kohahna are the perfect spot for this mid-year retreat for the 2019-2020 Compass group.
