All aboard! Join us for a retreat at Camp Willow Run, where we'll enjoy swimming, canoeing, crafts, games and the low ropes course, as well as small group Bible studies and worship. And, we'll sleep in train cars!

Friends, Inc. is a retreat organized for children by local children's ministers to promote Bible study, camp activities and fellowship. Our theme for the weekend is from Micah 6:8b - "And what does the Lord require of you? To act justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with your God." (NIV) We'll explore what it means to walk with God through prayer and Bible study, and a mission project to help refugee families.

Gear up for VBS, June 25 - 29, 2017 at Woodhaven in Apex, NC!

Whew! What a Great Week!

More than 90 children participated in Vacation Bible School in June. And it took more than 60 adults to keep up with them!

We are so thrilled with the opportunity to share God's love and give a glimpse of His purpose to all the children in our care. Thank you for making VBS a wonderful, memorable week. We hope it continues to spark questions and thinking about building a strong relationship with Jesus.
