Come ladies and get away! Enjoy doing the things that make a retreat for you! Make it a high energy weekend, or just as low key as you need. We will have many optional activities available. You are welcome to bring a fun project of your own that you do not have time for at home. Come with a friend, or come solo; you will go home feeling like part of a family! This retreat is for ladies 18 years old and older.
Our prayer is that you will take the time to draw near to GOD. As we hear testimonies from different ladies, we will see God leads us all on different journeys. Whatever your story, in HIS hand all things are made beautiful for HIS glory!

The food at the ladies retreat is nothing short of amazing! Please let us know if you have special dietary needs.
Camp Morrow offers a few different styles of accommodations. Most of our accommodations are youth style heated cabins with bunks and no bathrooms. We have a bathhouse close by with all the facilities. We have a few nicer cabins with bathrooms and will reserve these for our older guests or ladies who find going outside more challenging! Please let us know if you have any special needs. Be sure to bring your own bedding, towels and personal items.
Our prayer is that you will take the time to draw nearer to God this weekend. We are looking forward to hearing what God has taught these ladies through life experiences and the privileges of growing and sticking closer and closer to HIM through it all!
Meet our Speakers
Beki Duke will be joining us this year to share from her "Journey of Yes." A journey from bitterness, worry, and religion to a life-changing relationship with Jesus! Beki is a wife, mom, Mimi, and director at Camp Jonah. In this busy season of life, she is finding that one "Yes" leads to another and another. And that each "Yes" while hard and beautiful, it leads her closer to the heart of the Father.
Lorna Shetler grew up on Vancouver Island and later moved to central Alberta, Canada. She has been married to Earl for 39 years, served in ministry together, raised 4 children to adulthood, had the joy of welcoming 3 sons-in-law and 10 grandchildren into their family!
Over the years, JOY has been a big part of Lorna's life. BUT, what do we do with the various trials that seem to come?
HAVE I, AM I, WILL I CONSIDER IT ALL JOY?
Meet our Worship Leaders
Carrie and her husband Jeremy have 2 adult children who have recently just flown the nest and are enjoying a new season in their lives. Having just moved to South Central Washington, Carrie fills her time in getting to know those in her new community, gardening, teaching a High School Bible Study Fellowship Class, and having guests come visit their new place. Carrie has served the Lord in music ministry and teaching for almost 30 years. The Scripture that she has been holding onto and has been blessed by these last 2 years is found in Isaiah 43:18-21."
Debbie has enjoyed camp cooking ministry for 25 years, sixteen summers of them here at Camp Morrow. She and her husband Ron have restored an 1896 Victorian farmhouse in Newberg and raised their adult son Shawn and daughter Jenny there. They treasure their 3 grandsons – a 12, 8, and 6 year old. She is passionate about music and how God uses it to speak to us and call us into worship. A love for Irish music developed a desire to learn the concertina and penny whistle although piano, drums, and percussion are her first instruments. She also loves the beach, quilting, landscape design, and any excuse to have tea or go out to a restaurant, especially Thai food!
