Reasons to come
Camp director's thoughts
As a pastor in a congregation, I found that my youth group grew more during retreats than anything else that I ever did with them and I did lots.  Every year in addition to our regular meetings and congregational events, I would take my youth group on 1-2 weekend retreats.  By myself I organized a Milwaukee area youth retreat and I helped organize an International youth rally.

One of the main reasons that I became a Camp director was the fact that I had seen firsthand the powerful results from a well-planned retreat in a camp atmosphere.  I wanted to help other churches and schools experience the same kind of positive results.

The thing about retreats is that they take a lot of planning.  What I have tried to do as a Camp director is to develop a staff who can assist with the planning and the actual retreat, to build a facility that is comfortable for a group and to create programs that help a group grow.  Then group leaders would not have to read countless books to find just the right mixers; they would not have to take a crash course in food for fifty; they wouldn't have to consult with attorneys for the correct legal terms for release of liability forms, and so on, and so on, and so on.

And I believe that you will find staff, facilities and programs that accomplish that very thing at Camp Phillip.  I would love to be able to serve your group.
