We are a United Methodist retreat center located on the beautiful shores of Lake Huron. With hotel-style guest rooms, we can comfortably host groups year-round. We sponsor a few retreat as well (see Events), including God’s Treasures Camp, Lakeshore Interlude and Adult Choir Retreat. Our facilities are ADA accessible, including a walkway to the beach, and open to groups of any religious affiliation.

Our Mission

We are dedicated to an atmosphere of rest and renewal through Christian hospitality.

Our History

The ministry of the Lake Huron site began in 1946 as Lake Huron United Methodist Camp. A rich history of providing camp and retreats for children, youth and adults continued into 1998. In November 1998 through 1999, a $1 million renovation took place. In January 2000 the site reopened as Lake Huron Retreat Center with a ministry focused toward adults. Operating year round, the site is available for churches and not-for-profit organizations. We sponsor a limited number of retreats, including God’s Treasures Camp, Lakeshore Interlude and Adult Choir Retreat.
