Frequently Asked Questions

  • + What is the housing like for this retreat?

    You and your spouse will stay in a private room with a private bath. Please bring queen sheets and pillows. See packing FAQ for more packing details.

  • + What are sessions like?

    There will be three engaging teaching sessions over the weekend to give you spiritual encouragement and connect with your spouse on a deeper level.

  • + What should we pack?

    Bible and notebook, pillows, queen bedding, and bath towels. We will provide hand towels. Please bring casual, comfortable clothes appropriate for different types of indoor and outdoor activities available, keeping in mind that the evening or morning may be chilly.


    Note: We desire to provide an atmosphere of modesty as Scripture demonstrates (Gen. 3:21, 1 Cor. 12:23, 1 Tim. 2:9). While we have freedom in Christ in how we apply the principles of modesty, we ask that discretion and deference guide your clothing choices for camp. 

  • + What types of activities can we expect to participate in?

    We want to give you time to invest in your relationship with your spouse while you’re here, so we keep our schedule very relaxed. During free time, you’re welcome to walk the hiking trails, play games in the rec room, build a campfire, or just talk in your room if you want! Additional optional activities will be added based on weather or volunteer availability.

  • + Do we need to bring any food?

    Nope! All meals and snacks are provided during your stay. There’s a salad and cereal bar at every meal. Maranatha works hard to ensure that meals are filling and include something to eat for everyone. 

  • + What about food allergies?

    Whenever possible, we offer main menu items that are gluten-friendly* or easy to work with various allergies (protein, sides, veggies). Additionally, every lunch and dinner offers a full salad bar with gluten-friendly protein options. Please make a note of allergies in your registration so we can be aware; we do our best to label food that our guests are allergic to. Because one of our values is to keep camp affordable, we are not able to accommodate severe allergies or offer many specialized food for allergies. We apologize for the inconvenience.


    If you are on a specific diet and need to bring supplemental food (ready to eat or microwaveable), let us know. We have fridge space designated for this purpose.


    *gluten-friendly: items that do not contain gluten, but made in the same kitchen as other items with wheat/gluten, so they are not certified gluten-free. 

Maranatha works hard to keep rates as low as possible so camp can be accessible to everyone, regardless of financial ability. If your family is working through financial hardship limiting your ability to attend this event, you may request financial aid after registering and submitting the minimum 20% deposit.
