Our Father Child Weekend is a Great Chance for Dads to Spend Time With Their Kids.

The weekend is jam packed with fun activities, work projects, and worship.

Quality time is so important for Fathers and kids. Just imagine the bonding that’s possible when you and your kids are removed from the fast-paced and distracting rhythm of everyday life. Come spend the weekend with us and create memories that will last a lifetime!

Standard Housing

Davis Lake Cabins

The multiple windows on the lakeside of the cabins offer a quaint and picturesque view. Just across from the cabins is a bathhouse. In their secluded location, these cabins are surrounded by gorgeous colors in the fall and near the cross country ski trails in the winter.

Round Lake Cabins

There are eight Round Lake Cabins scattered between Lakeside chapel and the Chapel at Inspiration Point that sleep 82 guests. The cabins have a centrally located bathhouse within a short walking distance and a children’s playground nearby. With easy access to Round Lake, these rustic, heated cabins are a good place to stay year-round.
