Fall Retreat

We almost had to change the name of this weekend to “Shepherds Late Summer Retreat”.  Temperatures hit the mid 70’s.  Activities and free time were spent outside.  We even hit the greens on Saturday morning for some mini golf.  The only indication that it was fall were the bright red, orange and yellow leaves all around.

We had a great weekend for the Shepherds Fall Retreat.  It was fun to reconnect as a staff and reunite with our campers.

Bocce Ball at Arrowhead

With this weekend’s 40 degree rainy weather it is hard to believe that just last week we were enjoying a fantastic day of Bocce Ball with highs near 80 and the sun shining brightly.  It was a great day with over 100 athletes, coaches and volunteers on nine courts, for the annual Special Olympics Bocce Ball Tournament here at Arrowhead.

Many of athletes are also our campers.  It was a blessing to hear their excitement about the upcoming Shepherds Fall Retreat, just a week away.  We also had the opportunity to meet some new friends from the Special Olympics Area P, who coordinate athletes across five counties in northeast PA.
