April 19-22, 2018
Attention all men... you don't want to miss out! On April 19-22, we will be holding our fifth annual Northern Pines Work Retreat. This has rapidly become one of the favorite events for many of our men as we gather together for a weekend to work, eat, and fellowship together. It is an essential component of our relationship with Green Lake Conference Center, and over the past three years has helped transform our Wilderness and CCA program facilities. Whether you have lots of experience and construction skills or are just willing to pitch in wherever you can, we have a place for you. We'll work hard, laugh a lot, eat well, and make our kids' experiences at Northern Pines even better.
Here are a few of the things we've been able to do in the last three years:
- Roofed and renovated two lodges, creating over 60 additional beds for our Wilderness and CCA programs.
- Built almost 60 bunks to fill the new lodges and our young adult housing lodge.
- Installed ceilings, removed old playgrounds, and laid flooring in Wilderness buildings.
As a result, the Wilderness and CCA areas are now fully functional. We've gone from having our CCAs staying in Roger Williams Inn and Wilderness kids staying with their parents to now having over 150 beds in six different buildings to configure exactly as we need for our programs each week. It wouldn't have happened without the hard work of all the men who have been part of our work retreats!
We continue to work with Green Lake to determine the best possible use of our skills and will know closer to the actual weekend what projects we will be tackling. If you can work one day or the whole weekend, we'd love to have you join us. We'll gather Thursday night at 8pm to kick things off and plan the weekend, then get two full days for work on Friday and Saturday. We'll finish by noon on Sunday so everyone can be home at a decent time.
If you have any questions, please call Dean at 847-707-8053 or use our Contact Us page to send us a question. We hope to see you there!
