Welcome to the WELS Labor Day Retreat website. We have a retreat in the Massachusetts Berkshires over the Labor Day weekend from Saturday afternoon through Monday morning. We have Bible study and fellowship activities.

We are very excited about our Bible Study program this year: One in Christ.

This year, again, we will be at Camp Danbee. It is very clean, well maintained, quite comfortable and has great facilities. There are many of both private cabins and group cabins.

For 2018, the Labor Day weekend is September 1 -3. We hope you join us.

The fees pay for the camp, food, travel for our Bible study leader(s), and honorariums. Volunteers take care of all of the rest of the retreat.

Help Needed!

We need more volunteers to help with this years retreat and to make next year's retreat successful.  Major activities include:
  • Arranging for the retreat location
  • Publicity (we especially need help with this)
  • Food preparation
  • Child care / activities
  • Registrar
  • Collection of fees and paying for the needed
  • Booking Bible study leader(s)
  • Scheduling
  • Coordinating the Sunday Worship Service
We have had largely the same volunteers for many years. Some have moved away. Some have had other commitments. If you are willing to serve, please do let us know.
