Just like Graduation, Confirmation represents a huge milestone in a child's life. Confirmation is a celebration of the child making a commitment to their faith and growing into an adult. For the parent of the confirmand, the responsibility can be time consuming. At Inspiration Wood, we want to help plan for this celebration. We have the knowledge and understanding of the importance of this ceremony. Our Gathering Planner can help plan a meal for your family to celebrate the spiritual significance of Confirmation. Parents can focus on the Confirmand while we prepare the rest. See our Menu and pricing page for lunch & dinner menus. Overnight guests can stay in the cottages. Brunch can be served in either the Gathering Space or Lavender House. See the Booking your Retreat tab for information on how to make a reservation.
