We've organized the retreat in the hopes of maximizing participation of community members from both churches.  This requires significant fundraising, which we believe is worth it in order to create a whole-church retreat experience!  Instead of offering scholarships to a few people, we are scholarshipping everyone so that any and everyone can participate.  Check out the deals on the fees for this year's retreat.
