Christian family retreats and family getaways in PA

Men's Retreat Activities

Campsites – Retreat Center

The last few months have brought many changes and challenges to our world and we could all use a chance to rest. This summer, Black Rock Retreat wants to partner with families and small groups to offer getaways that provide a chance to slow down, enjoy the beauty of God’s creation, and connect. Retreat Center rooms all include private bathrooms and we are offering meal packages to take the stress out of preparing food. For families looking for a more rustic weekend, a limited number of tent campsites are available with optional meal packages.
