About this retreat

The holidays can be hectic! Are you looking for a way to keep Jesus’ birth central to your family’s celebrations? Could your family use some time away to reconnect after the busy back-to-school sprint?

Following Thanksgiving, the Home for the Holidays Family Retreat at Forest Home provides a unique weekend getaway that allows families to remove the distractions of the season and focus on the true meaning of Christmas. Escaping to the beauty of the mountains, 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. (Yes! A personal babysitter all weekend long!) Six delicious meals are prepared for you by our skilled staff, and your holiday to-do lists, chores, and shopping are left behind at home so you can truly relax with your family.

Included in the weekend are seasonal recreation options that are sure to make long-lasting memories. Cozy up with a mug of hot cocoa, hike through the crisp autumn leaves, careen down the Zip Line, or challenge your kids to a round of miniature golf. Every detail of the retreat is designed for you and your family to spend quality time together and spend time reflecting on the miracle of our Creator coming down to Earth as a tiny baby.

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.
