Health and Safety

Black Rock is committed to your health and safety!

As the team at Black Rock Retreat continues to walk through this unique time please know that we are continuing to pray for you and your ministry. We don’t know the specific struggles that you are facing, but we can certainly relate in many ways. You are not alone.

As reports from various health organizations, governing bodies, and local experts continue to come in, we see positive and negative forecasts predicted in equal measure. We understand that you as a ministry must make plans based on what can be determined to be best for your members. Please know that the health and safety of our guests is our highest priority.

Black Rock Retreat will stay apprised of any recommendations of the CDC and local governments and will consider action accordingly.  If you would like specific information regarding our current policies and procedures please call us at 717-529-3389.

We know you will join us in continued prayer over the next weeks and months as we both continue to prepare for your retreat, and your group’s time of seeking and growing closer to the Lord.

We are excited to see you in the coming months and are here should any questions arise!

"Black Rock is beautiful. The staff are friendly, kind, and helpful. The facilities are well maintained. The surroundings are beautiful. As both a paying customer and a recipient of Black Rock’s complimentary pastor’s retreat, I can say without reservation that this place has been a huge blessing to me, my ministry, and my family."
