Make the most of your spring break with a Harry Potter-esque nature experience!
Spring break in Cedar Rapids offers exciting possibilities for exploring the magic of the fantastic creatures of Prairiewoods (120 East Boyson Road in Hiawatha)! In this Potter-esque three-day retreat, seekers will be sorted into their houses and will use Marauders’ maps to enter portals of discovery in the wildness of creation in springtime! Discover woodpeckers and owls, foxes and turkeys, hawks, deer and bullfrogs, and insects too small to survive a sneeze. Points accrue to houses each time a fantastic beast is captured by photo. Find Hedwig the snowy owl or Fawkes the Phoenix and score extra points for your house! The Caretaker’s Cup (Newt’s Cup) will be awarded to the house with the most points at the retreat’s conclusion. This retreat is BYOW—bring your own wand! Lumos Maxima!
Facilitator Laura Weber, Order of the Phoenix, was trained as a Seeker in the wilds of the Midwest and loves discovering the fantastic beasts of springtime! In her spare time, she offers retreats to spiritual seekers at Prairiewoods.
This retreat is aimed at the young of heart who are at least 11 years old.
