We can help you host your own group retreat at Sandy Cove Christian Retreat Center!

Unlike most hotels, we want to partner with you to help your group members connect with God and each other. From the time you first call, through the contract process, to arranging all the details until you arrive, during your retreat and as you wrap up to go home, we have staff who will come alongside and help!

We want to keep it super simple for you!

Most weekend packages start at $188 per person for an all-inclusive stay with lodging, meals, meeting space and a variety of activities. For a week or weekend, we help your retreat or conference run smoothly! All of our guest rooms, dining facilities and the majority of our meeting space are all under one roof. A perfect retreat venue!

Interested in bringing a group to a Sandy Cove event?

We offer retreats throughout the year for men, women, couples and families that your group is more than welcome to participate in! These weekends are completely programmed – speaker, worship leader and lots of activities. Your group can sit together, eat together, play together – plenty of time to connect with God and each other!

“Sandy Cove’s staff and facility was accommodating, enabling us to get alone with God and also as a group to minister to one another!” Donna, Fitchburg, MA

Here’s a note from a pastor whose church joined our Men’s Retreat:

“In years past, we endeavored to host our own men’s retreat at Sandy Cove. Needless to say, even with all that Sandy Cove offers, it was still a lot of work for me and our leadership team. We were so consumed with maintaining our program/schedule, that the team was unable to enjoy the retreat ourselves. Finally, the light bulb went on. I recognized that we were having our men’s retreat only a week before the Sandy Cove Men’s Retreat. That’s when I spoke with the lead pastor and the rest is history! We’ve been participating in the Sandy Cove event for years now.” Greg Perkins, Pathway Vineyard Church, Woodbridge, VA
