New! - REUNITE Program for Friends and Families...
BREAKING NEWS - We Are Moving Away From the Rental Model that you may be familiar with in the past....
During our "off season" (September to June) our camp has developed the culture of renting out our facilities, especially our beautiful Mother Teresa Retreat Center to family reunions and gatherings of all types. While schools, churches, and non-profit organizations are still allowed to "rent" our facilities, institutional camps in Saskatchewan are actually not allowed to rent facilities to private events like family reunions etc. In Provincial Parks, only commercial leases, like hotels, are allowed to rent accommodation.
Because we are a charitable organization within the beautiful Moose Mountain Provincial Park, and in keeping with what our lease agreement allows for, we are no longer "renting" out our facilities to private families as we have been accustomed to doing in the past.
INSTEAD...We are developing a BRAND NEW "REUNITE" RETREAT PROGRAM for families and friends. Please read on...
We want to offer you an experience that goes beyond just enjoying our beautiful facilities in the heart of nature.
Our environment here fosters unity, oneness, harmony, inner peace, inner joy and a reconnection to nature and to the Divine. Until we have a fully developed program in place, we want to build a retreat-from-the-busyiness-of-life experience around you that will help you fully benefit from what is offered here.We are also building a library you will be allowed to use covering areas of marriage, love relationships, family and spirituality.
Our plan is to offer more structure to this program as we develop it.
What We Offer...
We offer a beautiful lodge-like facility called the Mother Teresa Center, which is a 12 bedroom retreat facility with a large living room area including a fully-functional kitchen, 3 bathrooms, 3 showers and a bath tub. It sleeps 36 (3 per room - 1 double and 1 single) and is located a beautiful nature camp setting on the edge of a Kenosee Lake. Check our FACILITIES tab to look at our camp. There are many trails and opportunities to connect with nature here.
CURRENTLY: During your time here you will be given a retreat guide (or do your own customized retreat to your needs) with activities that will help bond and reconnect to each other and to God. You will also be given a list of retreat services we can provide you with, from group to private individual sessions. We also offer a list of mentors and counselors who can help you, as families or individuals, should you find the need over the course of your retreat.
We have received many testimonial letters from people who have enjoyed and been blessed by this re-connection in life.
What You Bring...
Yourselves, of course!
Bedding for double beds and single beds. (We do this to keep the cost down)
Food and refreshments - unless you have asked about catering
Please DO NOT bring pets (We have too many people coming who have allergies)
We keep costs as low as possible, which is why we ask you to bring your own bedding and do basic cleaning when you leave (vacuuming, wash floor etc.)
$75 per night program fee per couple or family living under the same roof (which includes kids in university etc.)
$50 per night program fee per individual (If not under the "couple" or "family" rate - see explanation below)
OR $10 per individual daily drop-in program fee if not staying overnight.
Okay - If mom and child come it's $75 per night. OR if mom and dad and their seven kids, who still live at home or are going to college etc. come, then it's still only $75 per night for that whole family - no matter how many rooms they use. If uncle Henry comes by himself, even if he shares a room, it's $50 per night for him only. If mom, who's kids are already grown up and left home, comes by herself to visit with the family then it's $50 per night for her.
Payment is honorary. We neither check attendance numbers nor invoice you. Leave us a cheque or cash when you leave. Lock the building when you leave.
Your stay here and your participation in this self-directed family retreat program not only ENHANCES LIFE in families and individuals but it also helps us financially to provide much needed summer camps for kids and families. So, Thank You!
