At Ladore we believe many of life’s grandest rewards and experiences begin at 50! Since 1975, The Salvation Army has been catering to the needs of Seniors via a getaway at Ladore. Each year thousands of guests, age 50 and older, return to Ladore or visit for the first time. Our program is often referred to as a “Cruise on Land”. It’s a week’s vacation with the option for seniors to participate in the various scheduled programs and activities.
The Adult and Senior getaway is about the participants! A wonderful time of fellowship and fun, it creates an atmosphere where seniors from all over can come together, get to know one another, make new friends and reconnect with old friends. Seniors who’ve attended often make this an annual event.
Each year the program department selects a theme for the summer – the 2017 theme is “Hooray for Hollywood!”
Just imagine a ‘Star-Studded’ week with new friends and renewed acquaintances. We will all have an opportunity to dress up like the stars and walk the red carpet in our evening attire. Your imagination is the limit when it comes to all the Hollywood dreams you might experience during your Ladore vacation this year.
Of course we aren’t all about glitz and glam, and fun. We always take time for fellowship with our Heavenly Father in worship each morning & evening. Dr. Emerson Eggerichs from The Love & Respect Experience said : “Do not live by the standards of Hollywood; trust what God says in His holy Word”. You can be sure our Chaplains will bring us closer to God through His holy Word, some old and new hymns of the church and many special opportunities to learn how to live pleasingly to God.
“The important things are living right with God, peace, & Joy in the Holy Spirit. Anyone who serves Christ by living this way is pleasing God & will be accepted by other people.” Romans 14:17b-18 New Century Version
So pull out those old ‘tuxedos & evening gowns’ and make your reservations to join the “star-studded” crowd at Ladore for a ‘red carpet’ experience as we celebrate “Hooray for Hollywood” in the summer of 2017.
