Sponsored retreats are planned by ARC around a certain theme and are open for public registration. Day or overnight, these retreats are typically held in the Lodge which accommodates a maximum of 18 guests in 12 single rooms and three double rooms. Guest rooms are private with shared bathrooms. The Lodge also has a meditation room and chapel, library, bookshop, large and small meeting areas, two fireplaces, a screened-in porch, and other spaces conducive to rest and reflection. Linens and towels are provided.
Need time for renewal?
Private retreats are for individuals, families, or friends who wish to structure their own time at ARC and can be for any length of stay, as space is available.
You can enjoy resting, reading, walking, canoeing, or simply sitting by the fireplace and looking out the huge living room window.
Group retreats hosted at ARC are facilitated and planned with leadership from the group.
Many groups come to ARC year after year to lead their own retreats. Groups bring their own participants and agenda, while we provide the hospitality, nurturing space and homemade primarily vegetarian meals.
If your group is looking for a quiet, natural environment in which to plan, pray, reflect, rejuvenate, relax, explore, grow, or be inspired, ARC may be the right place for you.
