“Come away...and rest a while.”
—Mark 6:31

A retreat should be just that — a time for groups or individuals to withdraw from the hectic hustle-bustle of everyday life. Through rest, relaxation, and study, a retreat prepares groups and individuals to reenter the world with renewed energy and ideas. Jesus Christ was fond of retreating to quiet, wilderness places and invited his disciples to do the same.

That same invitation still stands.

Retreat to Sky Lake

Sky Lake's secluded, sylvan setting provides an ideal location for a retreat. Our comfortable facilities are able to accommodate up to 75 overnight guests and over 200 day guests. Over 900-acres of forest, fields, and water are yours to explore while at camp or on a retreat. Sky Lake is a mere 25-minute drive from downtown Binghamton, New York, which means that we are far enough away, yet closer than you think!

If you have been on a retreat, you may already understand the impact a retreat can have on the dynamics of a group. Retreats at Sky Lake provide the perfect opportunity for groups to fellowship and bond, to plan, to learn, and to share together in an environment free of normal distractions.

When it comes time for your religious, educational, family, service, or non-profit organization to retreat, all of us at Sky Lake hope you will find your way here.


From mid-June to mid-August, Sky Lake is transformed into a summer camp for children, youth, and families, along with persons with special needs. Guests may reserve facilities the remainder of the year.
