This week-long, camp-style retreat offers a combination of teaching sessions and small group processing and prayer, along with fellowship over meals, volleyball, and worship. The goal of the conference is to facilitate an environment and atmosphere where God can meet people and bring them from one place to another–less “information,” and more “transformation.”

Housing and Accommodations
Ebenezer Camp, located in rural Loogootee, IN, is a beautiful retreat with a central facility and eight cabins for housing. Three meals per day are provided for attendees. Unfortunately, we cannot accommodate special diets; however, there is adequate refrigerator and freezer space so that you may bring a limited amount of (labeled) food for your personal use. You will have access to a microwave or stove top if needed.
Intended for use as a boys’ camp, the cabins contain a number of twin-size bunk beds only, with one bathroom per cabin. There are additional showers located in the main building.
Couples are welcome to attend the retreat. Although we do not necessarily encourage children to attend, it is not prohibited. Limited, on-site child care is available upon request (preferred 10 years and under). Children over age 12 typically sit in on class sessions and then integrate with younger children and the childcare team during small group sessions. Mature youth, 16+, may participate in the breakout sessions if parents request it.
Whenever possible, we will accommodate couples or families in private cabins. However, depending on class size, we may have to separate couples/families into gender-specific cabins.
Alternatively, attendees may arrange off-site accommodations locally.
Attendees will need to bring their own sheets and blankets, towels, and toiletries. There are no publicly available laundry facilities on-site but there is a laundromat within 5 miles of the facility.
Note: The Ebenezer Camp facility is not accessible.
