• A Heart-changing Christian Retreat & Conference Center

    Our commitment is to work with retreat leaders to make sure you have a heart-changing retreat. We’ll provide modern lodging, a convenient location, wholesome activities, and good food – all at a fair and clear price.

A life-changing retreat needs more than an entertaining and motivating speaker.

Planning a retreat is a big job with lots of details. And, every group is different. That’s why at WCRC you can choose. 

Choose from 4 different lodging options: Hotel, cabins, cottages, or campsites.  You can cook your own food, or let us cook the meals for you.  Would you like a Guided Activity?  We have lots!  Call us today and let us help you create the retreat that’s just right for your group!

Let us handle the retreat logistics while…

you focus on making your retreat impactful.

Comfortable Lodging

Comfortable Lodging

Whether you choose our Oakwood Lodge Hotel, one of our Cottages, or our Cabin Village, WCRC is all about comfort.  All of our rooms have heating and A/C.  Our cabins have carpet and full-size mattresses.  Our cottages are set up with meeting spaces just right for your group.  Come for a tour and see how WCRC will exceed your expectations.

Great Food

Great Food

When you let WCRC take care of the food for your retreat, you can take a deep breath and relax.  Our friendly food service staff is standing by to help you make your retreat a success. All of our meals are prepared hot and fresh, and served buffet-style in our Magnolia Center Dining Room.

Guided Activities

Guided Activities

Our tractor-drawn hayride meanders over our 300-acre facility and creates an atmosphere for your group to connect and enjoy nature.  Our adventure activities like Zip Line, Tree Climb, and Super Swing are sure to be that thing they talk about on the way home.  Archery and Team Building Games add a bit of friendly competition and community-building that you just can’t create back home.

Retreats are more than just a speaker and a venue. It’s a place for the Holy Spirit to work in the lives of our kids, friends, and neighbors.

“When I drove up the lane into WCRC, it was like I could feel God’s presence!” 

We hear different versions of this quote almost every weekend. People connect with God here. And, that’s why we exist: to provide a place for the Holy Spirit to work in the lives of kids and adults through camping and retreats. When you’re in God’s Creation, digging into God’s Word, among God’s people, something great is bound to happen.

Types of Christian Retreats We Host at WCRC

We’re passionate about retreats: Hosted 500+ Groups, over 30 years, with 4.8+ Star Rating.

Men's Retreats

Men’s Retreats

When men go on a retreat they don’t need much.  Good food, a comfortable bed, some fun activities, and a place to meet.  At WCRC, we’ve got you covered. Plenty of comfortable lodging – even a separate room for that guy that snores.  Good food served buffet-style and fun activities like archery, zip line, team building games, and more.  Men need a softball field and horseshoe pits, cornhole, and a place to unwind and hike – we’ve got it all.

Women's Retreats

Women’s Retreats

Women’s groups love WCRC because we are “not rustic.”  When women’s groups come here they say, “Wow, this place is nice, not like that last place we went.”  Comfortable lodging and non-rustic facilities, good food, and fun activities are exactly what you need to have a memorable retreat.

Youth Retreats

Youth Retreats

The parents at your church want to know that when their kids go on a retreat they are safe, the food is good, the lodging is comfortable, and the activities are fun. We’ve got it all that and more! With activities like Zip Line, Super Swing, Hay Rides and Popcorn Bonfire, your youth will remember the experience long after they leave. Our lodging areas also have meeting space for worship and space for quiet time and small group gatherings.  Our 300-acre facility is safely set apart from the noise and distractions of the world.

Marriage/Couple Retreats

Marriage/Couple Retreats

With 30 comfortable hotel-style rooms, WCRC is a great place for your next marriage retreat.  Our 300-acre facility has room for couples to take that walk and have that talk.  Our meeting spaces and breakout rooms are great for general sessions and workshops. We can also gear our Team Building Games and Adventure Activities to address marriage topics.

Church Retreats

Church Retreats

For churches that want to pack up and bring the whole group, WCRC has the variety you need: The RV campground for the more adventurous, cabins and cottages for those “in-between”, and hotel rooms for those who really don’t want to “rough it”. Add great food and plenty of activity options and you’ve got a church retreat that they’ll remember for years to come. WCRC is a great choice for your next church retreat.

Overnight Field Trips

Overnight Field Trips

Taking your class on an overnight field trip can be a great experience, or it can turn into a challenging situation.  You could stay in a local hotel, but which one has 300 acres?  Which one has a basketball court, volleyball court, ga-ga court, and a zip line?  And, at which one can you say to your students, just go outside and play? The answer?  None.  We’re five minutes off I-64 and only 20 minutes from Colonial Williamsburg, Jamestown, Yorktown, Busch Gardens, and Water Country.

Retreats, Family Reunions, Overnight Stays.
No matter the occasion, we’ll help you enjoy every moment.
