Since 2013 a group of Adult Third Culture Kids have met in the Fall for an annual retreat. The retreat was started to provide a safe space for self-reflection, intentional processing, community formation, connection making, and spiritual and emotional growth and healing.
The schedule includes session topics that touch on the practicalities of living in the United States in post-university years, as well as blocks of free time for hanging out and enjoying the camp's recreational activities. Past speakers of the retreat have included Ruth E. Van Reken, Michele Phoenix, and Tim Sanford.
The 3-day retreat starts Friday evening at 9:00 p.m. and concludes with lunch on Sunday.
In past the retreat has been at Bair Lake Bible Camp in Jones, Michigan but the Retreat Team is actively pursuing other venues in the Midwest. Please contact us if you know of a venue that could host 60-80 Adult TCKs.
Registration for the 2022 Fall Retreat will be live August 1. Information about the retreat will be emailed as well as posted on the Facebook group entitled “Adult Third Culture Kids (Midwest Retreat & More).”
“This retreat was such a refreshing time. I almost didn't come but am so glad that I did.”
