"Less program and more connection time."
The Southern Oregon Elders are excited to announce our 3nd annual Elder Retreat on September 22 - 24, at beautiful Apserkaha Park on Howard Prairie Lake. See the photos below.
What and Why: Southern Oregon Elder Gathering Theme -- Honoring the Unhonored Self -- that part of ourselves, as elder men, which holds the wisdom to meet the issues of the unprecedented time of national and global crisis in which we are living. We each have a uniquely valuable gift to give. Let's use this time to learn how to more fully express it..

Google Map of Camp Apserkaha*
*Note: If you plan to use Google Maps to help you navigate to the camp, you need to know that Google has misspelled the camp name in their database. What this means to you, is that if you enter the name of the camp into Google Maps with the correct spelling, Google won't be able to fine it! You must spell it like this: Asperkaha--the second and third letters are transposed!
