Whether you discover your center by being active, reflective or somewhere in between… we hope you find time to explore our beautiful grounds or gather with some others and enter into a little ‘play’ therapy…

Outdoor Activities

  • Hike the trails. All trails are dotted with items of interest, about 1/4 to 1/2 mile long, easy to moderate difficulty level.
  • Pray the Stations of the Cross. A favorite meditation, the path guides a person to reflect upon the last steps of Jesus on his way to Calvary.
  • Have a bonfire. Some groups enjoy a little time by a fire. Permits are needed and can be found here.
  • Reflect in the chapels. Two outdoor chapels have become the chosen place for some to get away and reflect.
  • Play a game like horseshoes or cornhole. In-between sessions and conferences, some prefer a little friendly competition to unpack the messages.
  • Hold an outdoor prayer service. An outdoor prayer service is a memorable way to experience God in all His glory.
