Retreat WeekendsRegisterOVERNIGHT RETREAT WEEKENDS

Imagine an adventure getaway with family and friends. At Camp Harrison, we provide the lodging, cook the food, and facilitate the fun, all with our mission of developing confidence, character and faith. 

All our overnight retreat weekends are a great way to allow young children to experience overnight camp and grow in confidence before embarking on an independent summer session.
   

FAMILY RETREAT WEEKENDS

Family camps are the perfect opportunity for your family to unplug and spend time together. Our mission includes building stronger families. At family camp, your whole family can engage as a team on our ropes course and climbing wall, hike our beautiful trails, try target sports or paintball, see the lake by boat, and play on our water inflatables. Family camp is for all ages. Inquire about family retreat weekends >>
 
Family Retreat Weekends occur Memorial Day and Labor Day weekend. Costs are per person and include meals, lodging and all activities/programs.
 

MOM & ME WEEKENDS

Our Mom & Me weekends allow moms to get away with their kids and spend quality time bonding over camp activities and special programs. These retreats are set up like summer camp, but moms will have the opportunity to see firsthand how their kids can thrive at Camp Harrison, as they grow in confidence, character and faith together. 
 

WINTER WEEKEND

Camp Harrison is a blast, no matter how cold it is outside! Each December, Camp Harrison hosts a weekend getaway for youth, ages 6 - 16. This weekend allows campers to reunite with their friends from summer or, to get a taste of what a week of summer camp can be. Parents also get a much needed, kid-free weekend during the busy holiday season.

Winter weekend campers will participate in land activities, such as our ropes course, target sports, paintball and arts and crafts. They will also sing camp songs around the campfire, make s'mores and enjoy Christmas festivities, Camp Harrison style. Register online for this December weekend of fun: BOYS | GIRLS
