About this retreat

You keep a lot of plates spinning, and the to-do list is long. Wouldn’t it be great to have a break from cooking meals, cleaning the dishes, and entertaining your tribe? Could you imagine some time away that allowed for quality time with your spouse, spiritual renewal, and bonding time with the whole family? What kind of trip would it take to recharge those physical, emotional, and spiritual batteries? Sometime we wear ourselves out, and what we need isn’t just another vacation that requires more work. What we need is a vacation with a purpose.

Forest Home’s Summer Family Retreat strives to be the experience your family needs to reconnect, rediscover, and relax. In a picturesque mountain setting, your family will be engaged by dynamic speakers to challenge your spiritual walk. Your children will be loved and taught in fun, age-specific programs throughout the day and tenderly cared for in your cabin in the evening by your family’s very own Child Care Assistant. (No, you’re not dreaming!) You will finally be able to sit down during dinner to enjoy hot, delicious meals prepared by our skilled staff and take that much-needed break from the chores.

Whether you feel like plunging down the zipline or journaling in the chapel, going for a hike or indulging in a milkshake, Forest Home offers a unique blend of experiences for your whole family to make impacting memories to last a lifetime. You won’t regret the time away from the screens, busy day-planner, and baseball practice. Find your rest, find your purpose at Forest Home!
