Family Oasis

This event is designed to be a less programmed week where families can be fed spiritually and spend some quality time with their families. With less structured time families may take advantage of activities on the grounds or choose to explore the surrounding area of the northern Michigan. Day excursions to Mackinac, Pictured Rocks, or the Shipwreck Museum at Whitefish Point are some of the nearby adventures which families are able to enjoy.

Two days are free for day excursions while the other four days start off with small group Bible studies in the mornings followed by relaxing activities through the afternoons and evenings.
