Eliot Chapel, our sister UU church in Kirkwood, Mo., owns the 600-acre Bergfried retreat facility near Hermann, Mo. We had fun there the past two years and expect even more fun this year. It is a great experience for children, and it gives our members and friends a chance to make deeper connections with each other.
Those who attend can expect to enjoy fall colors, campfires, s’mores, singing, hiking, music, games,
and an outdoor Sunday Worship Service.
You can come and camp out or stay in the cottage or one of the two bunkhouses (first come, first served). The cottage has water, electricity, a double bed, two twin beds and three portable twin floor mattresses that can be used on the screen porch. There are two bunkhouses, one with four beds and other with five. The bunkhouses are rustic but do provide a bunk to sleep on.
The cost will be a small donation to cover food and the hire of the campsite.
When you sign up, please indicate in the comments box if you are willing to help organize the campout – we will need plenty of help.
