ST. GERMAIN - Dozens came to the 10th annual Day of Renewal at Moon Beach Camp in Saint Germain Thursday.
Each year the event features a different theme on wellness.
"The focus is on happiness and how you can create happiness in your life," said presenter Jessica Schiek.
Schiek and others helped teach people simple ways to find happiness.
"The main focus of today is relationships and connecting," said Schiek. "Having regular contact with people in your life and quality relationships have been shown to improve your happiness."
People who attended the event got to do just that.
The agenda set aside plenty of time for people to socialize.
"People have an opportunity to connect, spend time, reflect together, enjoy the scenery, be out in nature. That's something else that's shown to contribute to our happiness," said Schiek.
Psychotherapist Courtney Weber offered every day tips to bring people happiness.
"Anything outdoors, exercise, movement, reading," said Weber. "Finding an interest and really pursuing that."
Camp Directors said they're glad to be able to host this event each year.
"We cannot underscore how important human connection is," said Glenn Svetnicka, Executive Director for United Church Camps Inc. "Moon Beach really tries to make connections all year long."
Svetnicka says that's especially important as the days continue to get shorter.
"The Northwoods of Wisconsin, though incredibly beautiful, can be pretty isolating come winter," said Svetnicka.
Organizers were happy to see people making new connections.
"It's awesome to see any population getting together, getting out, being active," said Weber. "Talking, smiling, laughing, that is what today is all about."
