Where are you located?
We are located approximately 20 miles north of the second Crossville exit (exit 320) off I-40. Our physical address is 149 Scenic Hill Road, Lancing, TN 37770.
What type of sleeping arrangements we will have?
We have four family cabins (full water and electricity) and 32 bunks (at this time) in the rustic cabins (no electricity or water/plumbing). We can sleep up to 24 people in the family cabins without any additional bedding/floor space used.
When are the retreats held?
Currently, we are scheduled for Family Weekends on 5/26 – 5/28, 6/15 – 6/17, 7/20 – 7/22, and 8/17 – 8/19. We can add a date if you and at least one other family desire to come together. Most retreats are Friday through Sunday, but retreat lengths can be customized to your groups’ needs, if you are organizing your Family Weekend with other families you live life with.
Are meals included in the small group family retreat?
Yes, meals begin Friday evening and go through Sunday morning brunch.
What should I bring with me?
Clothes, toiletries, and needed medications. Bug spray and sunscreen, too.
Do I need to bring sheets, pillows, or other linens?
No, we provide all of the linens including pillows. Of course, if you like your special pillow, don’t forget to pack it. 🙂 If you plan to go to Clear Creek or the Obed River, you need to bring your own swim towels.
How much does a small group family camp cost?
Cost for a 2-day, 2-night retreat is $125 per adult and $60 per child (under 18). That includes lodging, 5 meals per person, and all organized activities.
What will we be doing?
We will unplug our screens (laptops, phones, tablets, etc) as much as possible. We will eat meals together at the Lodge. Morning and evening devotions are available and strongly encouraged. We will have morning sessions in which adults and children have separate activities and discussions to engage with biblical relating on an age-appropriate level. We will have afternoons free for each family to nap, hike, swim, play games, and more both on- or off-site, whatever your family is in the mood for that day. In the evening after dinner together, we will have group family activities such as a camp fire, movie night, game night, and others.
What if our group of families wants a longer retreat?
Longer retreats are available upon request.
