Homecoming - Staff Alumni Retreat

Hungry for a Pineapple Delight? Been humming a camp song? Miss sleeping on a bunk? Well, rest assured, Homecoming will be here soon - October 2nd - 4th. It’s a time for Forest Springs staff and volunteers to reconnect and relive those unforgettable moments. Whether you served at camp for a weekend or a season, we’d love for you to come back and see us. 

This year’s theme is “Vision 20/20.” You’ll have an opportunity to hear about the new and exciting developments underway at Forest Springs as we look ahead to the next five years. We believe you’ll come away encouraged and excited for the future of Forest Springs. 

We are offering this exciting weekend to Forest Springs alumni at no charge. Donations covering the cost of the weekend can be made.
