Retreats

We host Retreats at Pineywoods almost every weekend mid-August through May. We can accommodate groups with unique needs and of varying sizes–from 7 to 750. People experience God and leave with changed lives. We know it’s nothing we do, but rather what God does. Come see for yourself!

In most cases for overnight retreats, one meeting space that will accommodate your group size will be provided at no additional cost. Fees are applied for additional meeting space(s) or if you desire a larger-than-adequate space.

Supporting ownership churches, Christian college groups, and Christian school groups qualify for a discount. The adjusted rate will be applied to lodging and meals at the time of payment.

We look forward to working with you and serving you!
