Wilderness Family Retreats

During your Wilderness Family Retreat, you will experience a unique family getaway matched with warmth and hospitality. Here you will find friendly, outgoing, Christ-centered staff ensuring that your time here is memorable.

In 2021, we are excited to offer a unique retreat experience for you and your family. We will be offering Family Wilderness Retreats, where your family can come experience the wonder of Christ while taking a break from the every day routine. Our hope is to offer a breath of fresh air and allow space for conversation and closeness for your family. We will be taking measures to ensure your family has a safe and healthy retreat experience. Your family will have their own private room, dining table and living space while at Adventurous Christians.


Portage Haus – Retreat building

The newest building at Adventurous Christians is our Retreat Building. This building will lodge families in separate rooms. This is a year-round cabin, and has a common meeting space. It is heated by an outdoor wood boiler for in-floor heat.


Built in 2012, the Bunkhouse is a comfortable housing option at AC. This space will house one family and is heated by a propane heater, and is very close to our outhouses and main lodge.

Meeting Spaces


The Lodge is usually used as a place to eat, play games, and relax. Each family will have their own designated dining table, as well as their own place in the lodge to lounge and relax.


Portage Haus -retreat building

Like the Lodge, our new Retreat Building has a common space that groups use for casual times of acoustic worship and Bible study. This large and comfortable space could fit around 40 people.


outdoor chapel

The outdoor Chapel at AC is just a short walk from our main Lodge. It overlooks Bow Lake and can seat around 50 people. It’s a great spot for outdoor worship, a message from God’s Word, or a  moment of quiet.



The lodge is where we share meals together at AC. We make everything from scratch and are happy to accommodate any special dietary needs. Each family will have their own designated table in the lodge. Each family group will help us set the table, do dishes, and clean up after the meal.
