Young Adult Reader Retreat
Silver Springs, Flesherton, Ontario
August 1 - 7, 2001

Ariel view of Silver Springs - the house, conference center, The water was a perfect temperature - so refreshing.
There were two four wheelers that we could use if we felt like going for a spin or exploring the surrounding wilderness areas. Shane and his amazing vehicle which he designed and built himself. This "Shane Train", "Urantia Pod", "UBYouth Mobile", is ultra light and super aerodynamic And groups of young readers carpooled together in it throughout the entire tour - from Idaho to Ontario.
We felt blessed to get to listen to Alison's oustandingly beautiful singing. Ron Hamrick playing piano - he and Alison both brought their musical talent which enhanced our experience.
