Camp Homewood (Quadra)

For over 18 years, our guild has hosted a getaway retreat on beautiful Quadra Island at a non-denominational bible camp, Camp Homewood.  Our retreats welcome about 35 quilters to escape from their reality and immerse themselves in 4 days of fun, quilting, eating and relaxing.  For a nominal fee we settle ourselves into camp life in accommodations ranging from shared bunkhouse style digs to semi private and private rooms.  Included in the cost are 12 meals and an evening snack each night and especially unlimited time to sew.  One of the best perks to our retreats is the fun you have with other quilters from our Guild.
