Church Retreats

Looking for a faith based vacation experience in the heart of lake country? Look no further than Campfire Bay Resort! Run by longstanding members of the local Christian community, we now offer a unique, affordable vacation package for your specific groups. Connect with God and each other in one of our 2 to 4 bedroom cabins, join discussions on what it means to be a Christian in the modern world, and spend time learning more about your faith with others.

How Does It Work?

First, take a look at our options. You can choose between a 3-night, 4-night, and 5-night stay. Stays during the middle of the week, Monday to Wednesday, not only ensure that you get the best choice of our cabins, but rates are 25% off the regular rate. Give us a call to see when our next scheduled retreat is, or organize your own retreat with your church, small group, or friends! We’ll discuss cost and availability, then put you down for your ideal cabin and time frame.


Campfire Bay offers a large variety of services to help you relax and connect.  Our lodge boasts a coffee and gift shop and is a place to meet with others not staying in your cabin.

There is a gathering room upstairs that will fit 100 people comfortably for seminars and small group sessions.  The game room has a variety of video games, board games, and ping pong for during free time or you can take a short walk over to our on-site rec center where there is a full gym and fitness center to burn some calories.

The rec can also be used for large group sessions of over 100.  Inside the rec center is our day spa for a number of spa services including manicures, pedicures, haircuts, hair color, or a massage from one of our certified therapists.

Or maybe you’re a more outdoorsy type and want to spend as much time as possible in nature? We have multiple fishing boats and pontoons available for rent during the fall and spring, and can direct you to local trails and slopes if you want to ski or sled in the winter.

In the area, you can visit dozens of fantastic local diners and eateries, as well as golf courses, horseback riding stables, and more!
