Recreation Facilities

Black Rock Retreat provides numerous recreational opportunities for retreat groups to enjoy while they are on our property. We believe that these resources allow people to connect with each other, developing deeper friendships and often breaking down barriers to meaningful conversations and communication with other members in your group. These recreational options are available for our retreat guests at no additional charge.


We have two large adjoining ballfields that are suitable for softball, kickball, soccer, ultimate frisbee or any other large field game.


Nestled in the woods, our gorgeous Lake Of The Woods is open from Memorial Day weekend to Labor Day weekend and includes a beach front swimming area, a 130-foot Waterslide, and Manatee, (water trampoline with attachments), and raft.


Our pool, open between Memorial Day weekend and Labor Day weekend, is fully handicap accessible with its zero degree entry. Lifeguards are on duty when the pool is open.


Our full size gym is located in our Maranatha Retreat Center. It can be used for basketball, volleyball, dodgeball, group games, or any other suitable indoor activity. Our gym is able to be reserved by groups between 7:00am and 1:00am.
