Who is it for?
There is no age limit but it’s planned around older folk who love the Lord and enjoy the company and conversation of fellow believers. While there are camps each year at Lakeview which cater for families, the Retreat is for those who appreciate a quiet environment and a slower pace without the distractions and noise of children.

When is it?
We start with dinner 6pm on Mon 8 Feb 2021 and finish with morning tea and clean up about 11am Fri 12 February. Registrations are required by Fri 22 Jan 2021 at the latest please (click the button at the bottom of this page). Note that Mon 8 Feb 2021 is a Public Holiday being a Mondayised Waitangi Day. The earlier we know who is coming, the better we can plan!

What is the accommodation?
All on-site accommodation is in The Lodge and cabins surrounding the main hall and kitchen/dining rooms. The camp is elevated and views are pastoral and impressive, overlooking Lake Rotorua and Mokoia Island. This event is hugely popular and we generally use all bedrooms in the entire camp!

Campervans and caravans are welcome. If you bring one, it’s a win-win – you get the privacy and comfort you’re used to, and we get an extra room for others. There are four weatherproof 15A power sockets in the car park for such vehicles.

What will it cost?

  • The basic fee is $130 per person, as in previous years. Great value!
  • If you have a good income and can add $10 or $20 per person to the basic fee, your generosity will allow a wider choice of options for our major group outing.
  • For part-timers, make it $30 per night in camp, or for day visitors, $20 per day.

What do I bring?

  • Bedding. For North Islanders, bring your own bedding, including pillow slips. Bed linen and blankets are available for those travelling by air.
  • Baking. This is optional, but your homemade treats will add much-loved variety to our morning and afternoon teas and suppers.
  • Photos. Also optional, for the dining room display wall. We suggest you bring one or two photos which will be of interest to campers. Give us some conversation starters for when we’re down that end of the room!
  • Sales Table. If you are able to make or donate saleable items these will be most welcome. Items of food are reliably popular. Last year we raised $330 for the saints in Sri Lanka. Our intention is to elicit support for the Lord’s work, rather than focus on the prices.
  • Thursday Banquet! Bring smart casual clothes to dignify the evening. Here is your opportunity to participate with an item or song. No compulsion to contribute, but it’s fun when we can relax and laugh.
