*This year's Leadership Connection retreat coincides with the beginning of Ramadan. It is important to the Leadership Connection team that everyone can participate in this experience and we have been working with Camp Michigania to ensure accommodations are available for those observing Ramadan. This will include, but is not limited to, having meals available prior to and after fasting as well as prayer and reflection rooms. There will also be times built into the curriculum for additional breaks and rest.
