This year's Laugh-Fest will be held at Sugar Creek Bible Camp, which lends a great deal to the overall experience. Not only do you connect with your laugh, your soul, your friends—old and new—but you connect with the natural world. This makes the experience that much more whole.  There are 635 pristine acres of wilderness at the camp and incredibly comfortable cabins. A guided hike will be offered but you're also free to explore the camp on your own. September when the leaves are beginning to turn is an awesome time to be in Ferryville!

Yes, there will be a 2018 Laugh-Fest of the Midwest! We've always held these festivals in the spring but this year you can enjoy the autumn beauty of Wisconsin in September. The Laugh-fest is an exciting weekend of laughter, fun, inspiration, creativity, dancing, singing, comedy and various merriment—all in a gorgeous, natural setting. Whether you are new to laughter yoga, a seasoned professional or just someone interested in joy and wellness, there's something for you at the Laugh-Fest. And now, registration is still open!

Sugar Creek Bible Camp is in the country outside of the river town of Ferryville, Wisconsin. Please consult the map above for the exact location. When you arrive at camp, please go to the first building (called The Retreat Center) to check in.
