Cancelled for 2020
The Ladies retreat is open to all women from any reformed church. This is a ladies retreat—ladies 18 years old and older may attend. Nursing infants 6 months and younger may attend with their mothers on Saturday only.
The annual Machen Ladies Retreat is hosted by the women of Staunton Orthodox Presbyterian Church. It is always scheduled for the second full weekend in October, which is usually when the fall color is at its height but is still warm enough in the evening to enjoy a campfire and star gazing.
Due to COVID-19, the 2020 retreat has been cancelled and registration fees refunded.
Barbara Sadauski, Ph.D., LCSW-C
will be speaking at the
2021 Ladies Retreat.
Her topic: Dealing with Loss
The registration fee includes lodging in a bunkhouse, all meals, and use of the main lodge facilities. Tent sites are also available if you would like to bring your own tent and sleep in it.
