Congregational Retreat

Join Us at Our Congregational Retreat at Greene Family Camp

There's something for everyone at this special Shabbat retreat on March 6-7 at Greene Family Camp, which is a part of our 20th anniversary celebration. All members of Temple Beth Shalom—adults, kids, families, singles—will enjoy opportunities to rest, worship, have fun, and deepen connections to fellow congregants.

Sign up for the overnight option, or come just for the day on Saturday--see details below! 

(Special note: if you are planning to attend Ignite!--Shalom Austin's fundraising party on Saturday, March 7--you can easily attend the retreat too! See special timing for Ignite attendees in the schedule below.)

This year’s retreat theme is “Our Future Together.” Because this retreat is part of our Anniversary 2020 events, the cost to attend is partially subsidized by our Anniversary 2020 sponsors in order to make it affordable for our congregants.

The Congregational Retreat committee, led by Andrew Johnson, has been hard at work to plan a great event, and your help is needed. A week before the retreat, you will receive an email to sign-up to help with one small task at the retreat, such as supervising s’more making, umpiring a kickball game, gathering supplies, and setting up or cleaning up snacks. Your participation is critical to the success of the retreat, so please make sure to respond promptly to this email.

Sign up for the overnight option, or come just for the day on Saturday! For Saturday-only attendees, the cost is $25, which includes lunch and dinner, and all activities on Saturday. (If you choose this option, please do not select a lodging option, instead, use the Saturday dropdown selection.)
