About this retreat

A relationship with Dad is one of the most important in your daughter’s life. Ever wonder how to deepen those roots? Are you looking to create a special tradition that your daughters will look forward to, year after year?

Get away to Forest Home’s Father & Daughter Retreat for a memorable weekend where that relationship will be encouraged to thrive. Dads and their girls of all ages are sure to make sweet memories together by playing fun games, taking brisk walks in the mountains, sipping milkshakes at the Clubhouse, and hearing the encouragement of God’s Word. This unforgettable weekend is a chance to remove the distractions of work, smart phones, and agendas to be able to give your daughters the gift of intentional time.

A unique feature that distinguishes Forest Home is our all-inclusive rate packages, which means you won’t pay extra for meals, meeting space, and recreation.
