"Men's Retreat provides excellent growth in being a man. Unequaled opportunities for fellowship as well as having fun in a safe environment."

"Powerful! Faith-building and empowering."

"It challenged me as a follower of Christ, a husband, and a leader in my home. It is a great time of fellowship with men from my church and also men from other churches."



Additional Information

Signed up? Here is a list of what you should bring to the Men's Retreat - Men's Retreat Packing List

Find Directions to Grace Adventures on our Directions Page

Need more spots for the weekend? Groups MUST notify Grace Adventures if they want to add more people beyond their contracted reservation number. If there is available space in the weekend, a Grace staff will add them to your reservation. If the weekend has no more available space, additional people will be added to the Wait List. See our Wait List Policy for information on the Wait List.

Wait List Policy

A Wait List happens when there is no longer any available space left in the retreat. Groups or individuals are able to go onto a Wait List for any of the weekends. If you or your group needs more space than what they reserved within the bounds of a contract, and the weekend you want to attend is full, then any additional people are put on a Wait List. The Wait List operates on a first come-first serve basis. Groups that request space on the Wait List first, are given first priority to get in.

Individuals or groups are moved from the Wait List into the retreat when there is available space. Typically this happens when groups either cancel a reservation or final numbers of attendees are given two weeks prior to the retreat. If spots open up from cancelled groups or when final numbers are given, people on the Wait List will receive a call notifying them that there is available space. People on the Wait List are not guaranteed a spot into the retreat.

If you need more information about the Wait List or would like to add people to the Wait List, please call our office. (231) 873-3662
