Sandy Island Registration

Our annual retreat at Sandy Island in Lake Winnepesauke is coming up Memorial Day weekend May 27-29. The cost this year is $190 for adults/teens; $85 for ages 2-12; under 2 free. Some confidential financial aid is available; please email me to arrange.

You can now download the registration form. It should be printed, filled out, and mailed to me (address near bottom of form) along with your check and SASE. Completed forms should be sent to me by Thursday, May 18th; let me know if you have difficulty meeting this deadline.

Ruth Comstock ( or 617-571-4945) will be our Activities Coordinator again this year. If you want to lead or initiate an activity on Sandy Island, please contact her. Even if you have led the same activity in for years, you should let Ruth know that you intend to lead that activity again this year. Please do not send activity info or questions to Denise.
