We are so very excited to host our semi-annual ScrapAway at Mt. Chestnut Nazarene Center in Butler, PA. This retreat is for ladies who wish to avoid the circus-like atmosphere of large scrapbook vacations or conventions & concentrate on making friends and crafting the weekend away. At our retreat, you’ll get plenty of workspace!** You won’t feel like a sardine when scrapping with us.
We offer four different packages: a 4-day, and a 3-day package both with or without lodging. We offer fabulous meals, lodging, a commemorative ScrapAway T-Shirt, and a luxury class. Our rates are fantastic compared to other retreats. The Mt. Chestnut Nazarene Camp’s gymnasium facility and rooms with private baths* offer the utmost in conference center convenience, while maintaining an affordable cost! Plus, the size of the gymnasium allows us to offer a package without lodging for all you local folks! We do not offer shopping at the retreat center, rather as a participant, you will receive a special discount coupon to be used in our store to stock up on all the latest and greatest stuff BEFORE and DURING the retreat…just think, the largest store in the tri-state area to shop at and a discount, not inflated convention prices! Our store is just a few short miles from the center, making quick runs for that got to have item convenient and fast. All participants will receive a bag of goodies when they arrive, a luxury class on Saturday, and a commemorative Scrap-Away T-Shirt. You will not be disappointed!
