Family Retreats at Sky Lake in Summer 2020

While we aren’t able to do summer camp in the traditional way in 2020, we are excited to be able to offer an opportunity for families (or individuals) to still spend time at Sky Lake this summer. To keep everyone as safe as possible, we have designed these retreat opportunities to be almost entirely self-contained. But don’t fret about having to plan your time at Sky Lake—a retreat kit is included with suggested outdoor activities, devotions, crafts, and more. Though it will be on a limited basis, you’ll have access to our waterfront too!



Prior to making a reservation, we do require that you read and agree to our Summer 2020 Family Retreat Guidelines.



Retreat accommodations are available from Wednesday to Sunday from July 15th – September 6th. You may choose to stay for two, three, or four nights. Check-in will be available on the South Porch of Founders’ Lodge from 3:00 PM to 5:00 PM on Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays.


  • Retreat Apartment in Founders’ Lodge—a great space with a full-size wall bed and up to three twin beds. Each apartment has a kitchenette.
  • Set of rooms in Underwood Lodge—your reservation will include two rooms: one for sleeping and one for living. A small fridge, microwave, and coffee maker will be provided in the living space.



Pricing is per reservation, which includes up to five (5) cohabitating family members.

  • Two nights—$270
  • Three Nights—$335
  • Four Nights—$410

Please note that if you opted to forward your summer 2020 fees to a future event, those can be applied to this retreat! We also have a limited number of camperships available. Please inquire when making your reservation.



Food service is optional and is available à la carte or as a package. Please keep in mind that the Underwood kitchen will not be available for use, but each living room will have a small fridge, microwave, and coffee maker.

À la carte pricing:
    • Breakfast (cool)—$8/person
    • Dinner (hot)—$15/person
    • Supper (cool)—$12/person
    • Evening snack—$3/person
Meal packages (supper first evening through breakfast final morning):
    • Two nights—$40/person
    • Three nights—$65/person
    • Four nights—$90/person

Please note: Special dietary restrictions/needs are able to be accommodated but must be requested no later than seven calendar days prior to arrival.



The waterfront will be available for family retreat guests for swimming and use of rowboats/kayaks on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday afternoons and will be limited to three families per 90-minute time block (alternate arrangements will be made in the event of severe weather.)



To protect the health of everyone, visitors are prohibited during your stay.



As much as we love pets, our facilities do not, so all pets must stay at home or at a kennel.
