Winter Retreat 2023

Mark your calendars for February 18-19, 2023 and plan to join people of all ages at Camp Koronis, near Paynesville, MN for our annual winter retreat. This is a great way to deepen your relationships with other PPUMC’ers, to relax and to have fun.

The camp is equipped with a tubing/sledding hill, cross country ski trails, ice skating/broom ball rink, a gym for volleyball and basketball, ping-pong and foosball tables, and large meeting rooms for board games, jigsaw puzzles, sing-a-longs and great conversation. Some people take advantage of the outdoor activities, others prefer to hang out inside with crafts, board games and conversation. We’ll have some planned group activities as well as an informal worship service Sunday morning.

We’ll arrive Saturday mid-morning and stay through lunch on Sunday afternoon. People are also welcome to come for just Saturday. Meals are served in a dining hall and special diets can be accommodated.
