Winter Retreats

 

Your winter adventure begins here.

Winter may be cold and snowy, but your group can enjoy the warmth and adventure of Beacon’s winter wonderland. With an epic fully lit tube hill, miles of groomed ski trails for skiing and snowshoeing, and, if the conditions are right, hours of hockey on the lake, there are lots of activities to keep your group busy. Beacon provides fully winterized accommodations as well as an indoor lounge/dining room with lots of indoor games for the evening. Come and enjoy a winter retreat that your group will never forget!

Winter weekends at Beacon have carved out a special place in the hearts of the men at our church. Hilarious times at the tube run going down in long chains, shinny hockey on the lake for hours, on ice newly flooded by the camp director, and quiet reflective times in the winter woods on snow shoes or cross country skis – these special winter activities complement so perfectly indoor and outdoor fires to warm ourselves after the cold, great meals together in the town hall, uplifting worship and Bible lessons in front of the large windows reminding us of God’s beautiful creation, and good accommodations with lots of bathrooms and showers to go around.

Meals

A menu will be posted, with a fully-stocked fridge and heating/cooking instructions for meals. Groups are responsible for meal preparation. For winter groups, the cooking has been simplified to minimize the time required for preparation. For spring/fall groups, the menu requires more involvement. You should consider bringing 2 or 3 people who will be responsible for food preparation and kitchen clean up duties during your stay.
