Aldersgate Camp and Retreat Center provides a sacred space to unwind from the world and be renewed in faith. With winterized cabins or dorm-style housing and food service from our professional chef, Aldersgate is the perfect site for your winter retreat. With small and large meeting spaces and free Wi-Fi, Aldersgate is set up to accommodate focused work groups who need a change of scenery. Or spend time with friends or family and reconnect with God and each other. For more information or to book an Aldersgate retreat, contact our Guest Services Director, Christine. You can reach her by email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 401-568-4350.
THE RETREAT CENTER contains thirteen dorm-style rooms that can sleep 4 – 8, for a total of 64 beds. The retreat center has both small and large meeting spaces, free WiFi throughout, access to a projector, and is fully winterized. Our retreat center also has three versatile meeting spaces: the Great Hall, the Lakeside Room, and the Wesley Room.
- THE GREAT HALL is our largest meeting space with great views of our lake, especially at sunset. This is a very versatile space and can easily be set up for your needs.
- THE LAKESIDE ROOM is a smaller meeting space perfect for breakout sessions or smaller groups.
- THE WESLEY ROOM is a cozy space for small group conversations or planning. This new space has walkout deck access overlooking a small inlet of the lake.
THE WATERFRONT CABINS look out on our beautiful, private lake. In 2013, the cabins were updated and indoor bathrooms were added. Three cabins are duplexes – containing 8-10 bunk beds. “Lois” is a single cabin with 8 bunk beds and space for single beds to be added; however, many groups use this cabin as a meeting space. The waterfront cabins are centrally located close to our lake and the Dining Hall.
THE HEALTH LODGE is our nurse’s residence in the summer but off-season it is great for a small retreat. With a sitting room, full-size refrigerator, and two bathrooms in addition to four dorm-style rooms, our health lodge sleeps up to 12.
THE DINING HALL is where all our meals are prepared and served! Retreat groups can work with our professional chef and Guest Services Coordinator to customize a menu perfect for your group. We can accommodate most allergies and some dietary restrictions. This building can also be used for meeting space for up to 75.
OUTDOOR SPACES – Aldersgate is located on 280 acres and we have multiple outdoor spaces for your use. Uncle Don’s chapel is perfect for a group worship or for evening devotions. The amphitheater can be used for informal presentations or large group campfires. Our labyrinth is popular with our faith-based retreats and those looking for silent introspection. We also have a basketball court, an Israeli gaga pit, and open fields for games and teambuilding activities.
TEAMBUILDING & ROPES COURSE – Aldersgate offers specially designed team building activities for your group. Work together with our adventure team to determine your group’s needs – we can develop programs to focus on problem-solving, communication, teamwork… whatever your group needs to become more successful!
BOATING – Within our 280 acres is our private lake. During the retreat season, we offer canoeing and kayaking for groups (weather dependent).
