Retreats for Any Size, Style And Budget!

girls-cabinBring the entire clan to The Lodge on Echo Lake for a memorable Family Reunion, Team Building Event or Retreat for your organization, sports team, religious group, or any type of gathering imaginable.

Imagine being able to host a retreat for your company, team or organization and work on team-building and problem solving using a combination of our indoor and outdoor sports facilities or our climbing wall or ropes course rather than sitting in an auditorium or on the field –followed by a delicious BBQ feast or formal sit-down or buffet dinner in The Lodge, overlooking scenic Echo Lake — and then complete the evening with a fun-filled bonding activity like S’mores around a private campfire or a silly, crazy talent show, utilizing our private outdoor Amphitheater — if so, The Lodge on Echo Lake and Camp Echo Lake grounds are the perfect setting for your next event or retreat!

Available from the beginning of May until the middle of June, and again from the middle of August until mid October, The Lodge on Echo Lake and Camp Echo grounds can accommodate groups of 20 to 1000.

Whether you are looking for a single day, or a multi-day experience, The Lodge on Echo Lake and our adjoining Camp Echo Lake facilities, located on 150 acre private campus, are just right for your group. With housing for over 40 guests in private cabins and over 800 people via our “bunk-style” cabins, a fabulous kitchen, catering team, and beautiful facilities, we pride ourselves on providing the ideal service for your every need. Whatever the occasion, we can discuss the details, help plan the event, and coordinate your group’s stay!
