2022 ABA Men's Retreat

Better Together: Life with God, Friends, and Neighbours


The ABA Men’s retreat is designed to be one of down-time, rest, fun and connection. Opportunities are offered for men to connect with God and one another, to grow in friendship as well as in their relationship with Jesus. Camp Caroline  sits in the beautiful foothills of Alberta and has an inviting facility with an indoor pool, hot-tub,  full size gym and great sitting areas. You won’t be disappointed investing in this weekend away. 

Come with an expectation to rest, have fun, and reconnect with God and others. Feel free to bring your favourite games and snacks, and any winter outerwear you may require* (if you plan to brave the cold). If you want to use the gymnasium, appropriate non marking footwear is required, plus a sense of humour and a willingness to compete. If you’re planning on playing water sports or doing laps, or relaxing in the hot tub, bring your swimwear and towel. Additional things to bring: Your Bible, notebook or journal and a desire to spend time in God’s word, in worship, in prayer and reflection.

Thank you for considering registering for the 2022 ABA Men's Retreat. We look forward to seeing you there!

*In the past there has been opportunity to play ice-hockey. More details will be provided on this closer to the date. Camp has a tobogganing hill and several trails to be enjoyed by foot, snow-shoe, or cross country skis. You may also indulge in time spent building snow forts, snowmen or throwing snowballs at friends.
