Hello! We are the Douma Family – we are the faces behind Sola Appalachian Christian Retreat (Sola). Over the winter we have been praying and preparing for those we’ll meet, host, and help in some way. This is our 6th season, which is hard to believe. We are ready to welcome the 2024 season of hikers and helpers! Please reach out if you are a hiker and want to stay with us when you come through Unionville, or if you are interested in what we’re doing and have a desire to volunteer or donate to our ministry.

Our family (Spring 2024) – Doug (Banzai), Priscilla (Hot Drinks), Maple (Maplecakes), Birch (Stormy), and Evergreen (Peaceful).

“Let me hear in the morning of your steadfast love, for in you I trust. Make me know the way I should go, for to you I lift up my soul. Deliver me from my enemies, O LORD! I have fled to you for refuge. Teach me to do your will, for you are my God! Let your good Spirit lead me on level ground!” – Psalm 143:8-10
