Camps and Retreats
Throughout the year our church community embarks on retreats and camp experiences. From youth excursions for service or learning, to Men’s Retreat, to Community Camp, these trips offer rest, recreation, fellowship, fun and long-lasting memories.
First Plymouth Community Camp features activities and events for people of all ages. Whether you are a parent, a single, a senior, a youth, or a child, you are welcome. You will have a great week sharing in the spirit and community of La Foret Conference and Retreat Center near Colorado Springs. Some come to relax, read, talk, learn, explore, or just get away from it all. The 2017 Camp Theme was “Building Bridges in Our World“.

First Plymouth’s Fall Women’s Retreat
“Unmasking the Inner Divine”
September 15-17, 2017
In mid-September, a band of women from First Plymouth joined together for a weekend of unveiling and reclaiming the divine essence in each of them. At the heart of the retreat was a special mask-making workshop in which the women were led through a journey of awakening and self discovery. Through spiritual practices, prayer, song, and art-making, they explored the various masks they have worn over the years and discovered the mask that felt most authentic, which the individuals share with the world now. The weekend also included play, worship, movement, and relaxation at La Foret Conference & Retreat Center in Colorado Springs.
