God invites us to relationship each and every day. Retreats are a great opportunity to take time apart and disconnect from our everyday lives, connecting with this call to relationship through exploration of spirituality, prayer life, and community.


Our retreat is facilitated by the Rev. Radha Kaminski, priest in Cadillac and Big Rapids, and bi-diocesan youth missioner for the Northern Collaborative.

Fiber artists, crafters, and makers of all kinds and skill levels are invited to join us at Camp Chickagami to retreat and create in the Fall of Northern Michigan!

The schedule for our retreat is flexible – with time spent both alone and in group, in crafting and in reflection on our retreat theme: “Finishings and Endings.”

Partners/families are also welcome to register to attend, whether or not they are also fiber artists or crafters. Children are welcome; please note that there will be no childcare or children’s programming provided during the retreat.

This retreat’s pricing is a tiered pricing structure, beginning at $300. Lodging for this retreat will be in a communal setting assigned by Camp Chickagami. If you have requests for cabin-mates please let us know during the registration process.
