Retreats & Getaways
“If you want to experience joy, you’ve got to come to Family Retreat. It’s an amazing gift.”
A Little Slice of Heaven...
Family Retreats offer a safe and accepting Christ-centered environment for individuals affected by disability and their families making it a little slice of heaven for everyone! At Family Retreat, families are cared for, encouraged, and rejuvenated in an accessible camp environment. Each Family Retreat provides inclusive worship, Bible-based teaching, age-appropriate fun activities, and cultivates meaningful connections with other families. A loving and trained volunteer will attend activities with each camper while parents and caregivers attend programming worry free! Each Family Retreat is packed with exciting adventures for the whole family.
Types of Retreats and Getaways
Joni and Friends has several different types of retreats and getaways to meet the different needs of families.
Learn more about each type of retreat and getaway.
Family Retreats meet the needs of people at all ages, welcoming a wide range of disabilities. Some of our retreats are designed for specific age ranges, such as adult (over the age of 18) or children (under 18). Other retreats are designed for specific situations including Single Parent Family Retreats which serve single parents that care for children with disability, or Urban Family Retreats which are designed for families living with disability within the urban context. Any retreat specifications will be noted in the event description.
International Family Retreats
Join us as we serve alongside churches around the world to bring the gospel and tangibly live it out by serving families living with disabilities. Our International Family Retreats are a sweet opportunity to show families affected by disability that they are loved by God!
Specifically designed for American servicemen and women who have visible and invisible wounds as a result of war, these getaways are a place for respite and spiritual refreshment. Warrior Getaways also serve the spouse, children, and parents of the warrior; providing a wide range of accessible family activities, powerful speakers, one-on-one networking, and time in God's Word.
Information for Families
What is Family Retreat?
The Family Retreat program specifically focuses on families, whether they are intact, blended, or single-parent families. We value each person as created in the image of God and worthy of dignity and respect. To accomplish our objectives, we strive to create an environment at each Family Retreat that is Christ-centered and consistent with biblical values that reinforce the family unit.
Application and Pricing
The success of a Family Retreat depends heavily on the carefully nurtured, Christian community that allows families to feel blessed and supported. For this reason, Joni and Friends reserves the right to accept families and/or assign accommodations based on our ability to meet the needs of all families in a safe Christian environment. Thank you for understanding in helping us preserve the community of Family Retreat.
