Rest for the Healers

First responders have worked tirelessly these last two years in an unprecedented time in our country, and we are grateful. We know you’re tired. Your souls need a time of rest and renewal.

Rest for the Healers are two affordable opportunities this summer for first responders to come to the lakeshore for a time of solitude and healing. Spend time walking our prayer stations and outdoor labyrinth. Enjoy a sunrise on the beach in one of our Adirondack chairs. Relax while we prepare good food for you. Bring a good book and breathe in the fresh air.

Rest for the Healers is designed for first responders, such as firefighters, law enforcement personnel, medical personnel, utility workers and public health professionals. 

Cost: $60 per person (single occupancy). This very special rate is thanks, in part, to financial support from the Michigan Annual Conference of the United Methodist Church.


  • Two-nights, single occupancy in hotel-style guest rooms
  • Five meals in Kresge Dining Room overlooking Lake Huron
  • Self-guided creative and contemplation stations
  • Optional group activities 
  • Check in after 3 pm. Check out by 3 pm.
