Poiema Spring Intensive 2024

Christ Magnified In Me

March 18th-22nd, 2024

Registration Fee: $300 per person

Early Registration (before January 1st): $250 per person

Registration closes February 5th! Availability is limited.

Prepare yourself as we will be will be eating, talking, dancing, hiking, singing, biking, cooking, drinking lots of coffee, and sitting by the fire.

Pray that our Lord will give us open hearts, good weather, and memories of His grace.

Where are we staying? 

We will be staying in Hungry Mother State Park, located at:

2854 Park Blvd, Marion, VA 24354

We will be occupying the north end of the park; the Hemlock Haven area.

What should I pack?

The basics: Clothing (remember you will be spending lots of time outdoors – it never hurts to bring extras!), toiletries, sheets, pillow, towels & washcloths, hiking shoes, rain gear, jacket/coat, clothing/shoes that you are comfortable dancing in, a nicer set of clothes for the final dance on Thursday night, flashlight, snacks, water bottles, sunglasses, Bible, notebook, wallet/cash, etc.

What meals are provided? 

All meals will be provided.  Be sure to let us know if you have any dietary restrictions when you register.

Is dancing mandatory?

Our wonderful dance caller, Autumn, will be teaching & calling several contra dances each night, with a more “formal” dance the last night  (a good opportunity to dress up!).  We’re not saying she’ll drag you out on the dance floor and make you at least try, but we’re not promising she won’t, either.

Is this a matchmaking camp?

Nope!  Our goal is to challenge you in your faith and connect you with like-minded young adults. If the friendships formed here turn into something more, that is fantastic!  But that is not our focus.

What is the schedule?

Our days will consist of lectures, meals together, dancing, singing, and other activities.  More information coming soon!

Who is this year’s speaker? 

Our speakers this year are Pastor Rhett Crabtree & Pastor Laurence Windham.
