The theme “Spirituality of Imperfection” will be explored through our program, including workshops led by Caron’s spiritual team, wellness and camp activities, and our keynote speaker, Wolf Yoxall. Our theme this year draws from the title of the much loved book, The Spirituality of Imperfection by Ernie Kurtz and Katherine Ketcham.


  • Friday, October 6 - Registration, dinner, recovery meeting, and fellowship.
  • Saturday, October 7 - Breakfast, lunch and dinner. workshops and activities, including a wagon ride and nature hike. Keynote speaker presentation, ending with a campfire meeting.
  • Sunday, October 8 - Breakfast and chapel service at Chit Chat at Caron.

Come back to Magic Mountain, join with others on the journey of recovery, experience the special spirit that Caron is so known for, and explore those challenge areas that are so fruitful as we “trudge the road of happy destiny.”
