Year-Round Retreat Options: Your group, family or team-building event will love our versatile meeting spaces, delicious food service and accommodating overnight lodging.

Outdoor Fun and Adventure: From our swimming pool with slide to our kayaks, canoes and paddle boards, water-lovers have a grand time! Our go-karts, paint ball and mountain boarding give the high-adventure types lots to do! Fire bowl, chapel and scenic views help every day become more sacred and each guest grow closer to God through Jesus Christ.
