About the Retreat
The retreat will be held at Camp Berea in Hebron, New Hampshire, and will be held from Friday evening, October 27th, through Sunday morning, October 29th. The registration cost includes the two nights of lodging, as well as five meals (dinner on Friday through breakfast on Sunday). The theme for the weekend will be “Life Together: Building our gospel centered community one story at a time.”, and we envision this time serving as a chance to build community deeper and faster than is possible in just the twenty minutes between services on a Sunday. You can read more about our vision for the retreat and the purpose behind it in the tab above titled “Life Together: Why Should I Attend?”.
Camp Berea has dorm-style bunk rooms that sleep 6 people to a room. The lodging included in the base price is a bed per person, with separate men’s and women’s bunk rooms. Couples or families may opt to stay in a private bunk room for an additional fee- this would be the same as the normal 6-person bunk room, but set aside for private use and with its own bathroom. If a family has six people and can fill a bunk room, the extra fee is dropped. Please note that not all requests for private rooms may be possible to accommodate if there are a large number of requests (due to the total number of rooms available).
The price per person for the weekend is $130.50, with a $50.00 non-refundable deposit due by Friday, July 21st (or, ideally, upon registration).
For families, the price is capped at four people, which comes out to $522.00 including a $200.00 deposit.
Please note- the deposit counts towards the total price; it is not an additional charge.
The fee for a private bunk room is $100.00.
We would like anyone who would like to attend to be able to come, regardless of the cost. If the price is something that would prevent you from coming, there are both partial and full scholarships available. If you’d like to inquire about a scholarship for you or your family, please don’t hesitate to reach out! You can email the deacons directly at firstname.lastname@example.org , or fill out the registration form and select the scholarship option at the end of the form.

- Q: Can I select who is in a bunk room with me?
A: When you register, you can request to room with others who will be attending. We will do our best to accommodate as many requests as possible, but depending on numbers and other logistical factors, may not be able to grant all requests.
- Q: Can I attend for just a day/night/not the whole weekend? If so, what is the cost?
A: While we hope that everyone will be able to come for the entire weekend, if you have circumstances that would prevent you from attending the entire time, please reach out to the deacons directly at email@example.com
- Q: What should I make sure and pack?
A: Camp Berea offers a generic packing list for events at their facility- check it out here
- Q: How long is the drive to Camp Berea? What if I need a ride?
A: Depending on traffic, it can take between 2 and 3 hours to get there. You can get directions here, and a map of the camp here. There is a place to indicate if you need a ride in the registration form. Additionally, we would encourage anyone who is able to provide a ride to others to indicate that as well, so that we can arrange for folks to carpool.
