Come explore your creative writing in the most glorious spot in all creation – Wallowa Lake United Methodist Camp!  During this retreat you will have plenty of time to work on that book manuscript, finish that poetry, edit and compile those essays, or start that memoir.  

Led by Reverend Dr. Craig Pesti-Strobel, Spiritual companion and writing cheerleader and Susan Pesti-Strobel, published poet, English teacher and lecturer, fiber & language artist.

Days will start with a facilitated period of meditation and centering before you set out to work on writing projects dear to your heart.  Take time to explore activities of Joseph and Wallowa County, including art galleries, Fishtrap Writers Conference presentations, mountain tram, and hiking trails of Oregon’s largest designated wilderness area.

Delicious plentiful meals will be provided daily!

Accommodations at the camp are in deluxe cabins with private bath, mini fridge and microwave.  Linens and towels are provided.  The cabins have two lower beds and two upper beds in most units.
