As 2016 comes to a close, we here at Fortune Lake are reminiscing on all the wonderful things that have happened this year.
We’ve had a great time hosting year-round retreats, as well as having retreat groups come and enjoy our facilities. Whether it was singing camp songs around the fire, chatting away at meals, playing games in the chapel, or enjoying quiet time in our lodges, we have many fond memories of the various groups and individuals we’ve gotten to meet and fellowship with.
The snow is softly falling outside, and it seems just like yesterday summer was upon us. We had a spectacular summer this year, and loved having this Place of Grace be filled with so much people. We had an incredible amount of campers come to Fortune Lake and we had a lot of Day Camps too.
September came too quick, and before we knew it, we were hosting year-round retreats again, along with introducing a new program called Half Day Camp. We have worked it out with Forest Park School to send their elementary students here whenever there is a half day. These kids get the chance to experience camp and it’s a wonderful afternoon filled with fun and laughter.
Our Fall Fest was a success and we are so thankful for all the support and love we’ve received on our annual fundraiser.
The holidays are upon us and it’s crazy to think that in a few days we’ll be transitioning into a new year.
We’re thankful to everyone who has prayed, helped financially, and supported us in various capacities. It takes a community to help change the life of a child, and we’re thankful for our Fortune Lake community.
Blessings to you all and we’re excited to see what 2017 has in store for us!
