Venues for a Spiritual Awakening

Venues for a Spiritual Awakening

When planning an event for your spiritual group, camp, retreat, or gathering, you need to choose a location that will inspire your attendees from the moment they arrive. But you, as the event planner, shouldn’t be bogged down with a lot of worrisome details that will take your focus away from your mission. That’s why our Top Picks for Spiritual Gatherings/Camps/Retreats include venues that are not only located in inspiring locations, they also offer extreme customer service that takes the burden off you.

One of our favorite spots is the breathtaking Silver Bay YMCA – Conference and Family Retreat Center on Lake George. Nestled in the foothills of the Adirondacks on the Shores of Lake George in New York State, it will provide your attendees with breathtaking views. Silver Bay is an all-inclusive, year-round family conference center that can offer overnight accommodations for up to 750 guests. One of things that stands out about Silver Bay is that there is something for every age. No matter what demographics make up your group, Silver Bay can provide activities that will interest them, and do so in a beautifully relaxing atmosphere.

We love Christian Retreats Network because event planning could not be any easier with the professionals at these many locations. Choose one of their beautiful properties from across the United States and the rest is practically effortless. Christian Retreats Network properties offer complete packages that can include all the elements you need for a successful ministry event. Choice of lodging, meeting spaces, dining, even team-building recreation. It’s all there. Plus, you’ll even have complementary use of all gyms, fields, and courts along with the necessary equipment. The service-oriented staffs at Christian Retreats Network properties handle everything from setup to cleanup, allowing you to focus on providing life-changing ministry for your attendees.

As much as we believe it’s imperative that attendees bond together at a spiritual retreat, it’s also necessary to provide space for quiet, contemplative reflection. That’s why Silver Falls Lodge and Conference Center is another top pick for us. Located in Sublimity, Oregon, Silver Falls’ lodges are perfect for keeping your group together while also providing individual suite-style living spaces for your guests to be alone for quiet meditative thoughts. Silver Falls also provides a breathtaking outdoor setting that will further enhance your guests’ experience. Silver Falls can accommodate your groups up to 220 in 5 different meeting rooms. Each event is individually customized by their own experienced event coordinator who will help you every step of the way -- attending to every detail.
