Above all, the Feast is a time to worship Almighty Yahweh (Lev. 23:1). There is no greater purpose! To follow this command, we have scheduled daily worship services along with several workshops throughout the Feast. We also have scheduled our traditional Night of Special Music. All are invited to participate in the music activities. To honor our Father in heaven, we ask that all Feastgoers make an effort to attend each day as this is a commanded, eight-day observance.
In addition to worship services, we have several activities planned, including: a family fun day with an assortment of field activities, men’s and youth boys’ basketball tournament, youth softball, family Bingo, puppet show, and several other games and activities for the entire family. For those interested, we also plan to make shofars this year. To participate you will need to purchase a kudu horn by contacting the Ministry toll free at (844) 899-6438 during normal office hours by September 1 (the cost per horn is $21).
Due to nearly everyone returning from last year’s Feast, the only remaining lodging options at Camp Allen are the cabin for single men only and basic tenting. The cost is $25 per night, per nuclear family for RV spaces and $10 per night for basic tenting (no water or electric).
In addition, there are two other options for tenting/RVs just minutes away. The first and closest (about two minutes from Camp Allen) is the Holliday Landing Resort and Marina that sits along Lake Wappapello.
The resort offers a variety of beautiful campsites to meet your camping needs. There are 11 sites with water, electric, and sewer hook-ups, 28 sites with water and electric, and 5 primitive sites. All water and electric campsites have 30/20 amp electric service and frost-free water. Guests may use the modern restroom facility with showers. A dump station is available for your use. Visit hollidaylanding.com or call the office at (573) 224-3430 for additional information or to make a reservation. When making a reservation, you will need to mention that you are “with Yahweh’s Restoration Ministry” or that you are “observing the Feast of Tabernacles.”
A second option is the Greenville Recreation Area. This scenic park is located about 10 miles from Camp Allen, just outside the city of Greenville. It contains 106 campsites with electric hookups. There is also a dump station in the park for RVs. You can visit them online or call the park office at (573) 224-3884 for additional information or for reservations.
For those desiring a hotel, we suggest Poplar Bluff, Missouri, approximately 30 miles from the camp. Hotels in Poplar Bluff, MO (via Google)
Note: Those who choose to stay off the camp must still submit a registration form with the $35 registration fee.
To ensure proper respect during worship times and modesty throughout the Feast, we request that the following guidelines be honored: during times of worship, men and boys should wear dress shirts and pants. Women and young ladies should wear dresses, skirts that cover the knee or dress pants. If you do not have adequate attire for worship, please come in your best, as we are coming before the King of the universe. At all times avoid immodest shorts, sleeveless, tight or low-cut clothing. Also, women and young ladies are required to cover their heads during worship and men are to leave their heads uncovered (1Cor. 11:6-7).
Several group meals are offered throughout the Feast. The Ministry will provide a basic continental breakfast each day of the Feast along with a fellowship meal on the first High Day, wiener roast, and group BBQ (donations are appreciated). For those interested, the camp will also be providing a meal package, which will include 4 lunches and 2 dinners. The total cost is $36 (ages 9 and above) and $18 (ages 3-8) and free for ages 2 and under. Most camp meals will include a salad, drink, entrée, and dessert and must be purchased as a package (not available individually). All meals are Kosher-compliant. All other meals will be the responsibility of individual Feastgoers. For more information, see schedule.
The most affordable and closest airport to Camp Allen is Lambert International Airport in St. Louis. For those without transportation, the Ministry is offering limited pickup from the St. Louis Airport on Friday, Sept. 16, at 4:00 pm (be certain to schedule your flight to allow for arrival and baggage pickup prior to the 4:00 pm departure time). YRM’s shuttle will be returning to the airport on Sunday, September 25, by 12:00 pm. Please plan accordingly. To ensure seating for pickup, attendees must contact YRM to confirm availability! Those who cannot accommodate this timeframe will need to provide their own transportation from the airport to the camp.
Yahweh’s Restoration Ministry asks all who attend to respect our doctrines and not purposely spread discord. Our teachings and worship are in the Names Yahweh and Yahshua only. The Feast is a time to worship and to enjoy the company of like-minded believers, not to engage in doctrinal disputes. If you have a different belief from our Statement of Beliefs, we ask that you discuss it with only YRM’s ministers.
We pray that you will make plans NOW to join us for the 2016 Feast of Tabernacles. The many instructional and inspirational messages along with the many family activities promise to make the upcoming Feast one for the ages! May Yahweh bless you in your desire to serve Him!
