Here are some of the items you should bring to the men’s retreat: First things first, make sure you bring a BIBLE to use for all the meetings. Other items include a pillow, a sleeping bag or blankets, clothes for recreation, a coat/sweatshirt for the cooler evening weather, a towel, and toiletries.   There is also a camp store which has snacks, drinks, food items as well as camp clothing so you might want to bring some spending money for some of those items.  (Special note: We will also be collecting an offering at the camp which will go toward a special project for getting the camp ready for summer!)
