Retreat at ARC

Types of Retreats

ARC Sponsored

Sponsored retreats are planned by ARC around a certain theme and are open for public registration.


Private Retreats

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.

Choose from three buildings (the lodge, cottage and hermitage) on the ARC grounds. Learn more about our Lodging options at the link below.

Group Retreats

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 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.

Groups typically stay in the lodge, with overflow (as needed) to the cottage and the hermitage. Smaller groups may choose to stay in and/or meet in the cottage. 

NOTE: Lodge accommodations are unavailable during ARC’s Sabbatical May 6- September 8.
