Wounded Spirits Retreat at the Wilds Christian Camp (NC)
If your desire is to help others heal from a traumatic event or to begin healing from such a circumstance yourself, this retreat is for you, whether you are a veteran, first responder, victim of abuse, or someone willing to help these men and women heal. This is a great opportunity for both individuals and churches wishing to help those with PTSD. Currently, more than 40 support groups meet in churches across America. The average group will grow a local church membership by 20.
Camp will begin on April 20 with a dinner and end on April 24th after breakfast. The Wilds Christian Camp is a beautiful piece of property in the mountains of North Carolina. Pleasant hotel-style rooms can be found in either of our three-story buildings located approximately 150 yards from the main Lodge. Most rooms are furnished with a queen-size bed, one set of bunk beds, and a private bathroom. Room and delicious meals for the week are included in the cost. Attire for the retreat’s classes and graduation is business casual, and casual for all other activities. The camp has plenty to offer, and several hours of R&R are set aside each day to unwind and get to know your fellow attendees better.
This retreat will cover a wide range of subjects, including but not limited to: suicide, guilt, depression, rape, anger, flashbacks, and pornography. For some topics, the sessions will split into male and female groups. Classes will be taught from the best selling book Wounded Spirits: A Biblical Approach to PTSD, which will be available for purchase at camp for $10.00. Reservations made by April 1, 2020 will receive a free CD of PTSD Sermons by Doug Carragher, Th.D. All of the instructors are certified Wounded Spirits counselors (including Doug & Debbie Carragher, Steve & Lucinda Martinez, and Stephanie Wesco), most of whom have battled with PTSD themselves. As a group, they have helped countless individuals find a road to recovery through their personal experience, genuine love, and a good sense of humor.
Free concert and special music provided by Stephanie Wesco, from her new CD, Steadfast in Trials.
Please note that the privacy of all of our attendees is of the upmost importance to us. What is said at camp, stays at camp.
