Plan a Retreat For Your Group

We accommodate both small and large group retreats.

At CONNECT Christian Camp & Retreat Center, our mission is to connect people to the Kingdom by loving well. A retreat at CONNECT is the perfect escape from life’s distractions, so you can spend time connecting with God and with others. We strive for excellence in hospitality, so your retreat can focus on what’s most important to you. We have over 140 secluded acres, which are home to a lake, playgrounds, gaga courts, a disc golf course, a human foosball court, a paintball course, basketball courts and nature trails. In the summer, you can cool off in our pool and, at night, your group can relax around a campfire.

We are located in Crown Point, Indiana, a 45 minutes south of Chicago.  We can accommodate groups up to 240 April-October and 105 year round.  We would love to discuss how we can help you create a memorable retreat for your group. Call us at 219-663-2530.
