Happiness Retreat is a three day, two night retreat for people with developmental disabilities and delays, ranging from mild to severe. The retreat has met annually since 1974 and is located at Caraway Conference Center. Last year more than 800 youth and adults attended the Happiness Retreats.

The retreat is set up similar to a Vacation Bible School event, including Bible story study, puppets, creative movement, pool time, handbells, worship, a talent show and a live band. Campers will have many opportunities to learn about Jesus at their unique level of ability.

Happiness Retreat is a fun time and a spiritual blessing for campers and caregivers. Complete information on Happiness Retreat is in the retreat brochure linked to this page. Fill out the "Request for Forms Form" and send it in for your registration packet.
