Our retreat is not luxury, nor is it uncomfortable. One does not have to be a frontiersmen or experienced camper to attend our retreat. The cabins are dry and can be made warm. The kitchen is a modern chef’s kitchen with that was designed to cook meals for 100 people. The bathrooms and showers are large and modern.
The campsite is a large campus nestled in Laurel Hill State Park. We are just far enough away from civilization to have as sense of enclosure, but close enough satisfy outside needs if necessary. We feel as though this tranquil setting, reclined near our huge fire pit, produces a level of sharing and insight that helps us heal from our disease of compulsive use.
” The fire pit is a special place ( almost holy place) for me. I never realized the level of sharing men can reach in a quiet place. The fire is truly meditative. I carry statements, stories, and feelings with me from the retreat that lasts throughout the year. It is a true retreat that brings me closer to myself, and my goals in recovery. ”
