2015 LGBT Family Retreat
A few years ago, BCC’s Director of Education Leah Zimmerman and our previous Executive Director Felicia Park-Rogers met with a few families and offered a few possibilities for LGBT family vacations — this is how the annual LGBT Retreat was born! More and more families are joining us to the camp at the Shalom Institute every year, and this year the annual camp weekend takes place, bigger and better, on May 1-3.
