Parish Retreat
Oct 20-22 | Stillwood Camp

Get away for a weekend to grow together as a church family while drawing nearer to God, enjoying his beautiful creation, and having fun making memories with people of all ages.

We’re very excited to be hosting our third annual Parish Retreat, Oct 20-22, at Stillwood Camp at Cultus Lake. The camp has accommodations for families, couples, and singles. You’ll spend your time with old and new friends enjoying the outdoors and amenities like a pool, sauna, gymnasium, high ropes course, climbing wall, zipline, and café, just to name a few. There will also be times of teaching and worship. Rev. Sean Love will be teaching from the book of 1 John.

+ Accommodations

Cosily tucked in amongst the trees are 18 cottages, equipped with beds for eight to 12 people. Each cottage has welcoming wooden interiors, stone exteriors, electric heating, private bathroom, table, and chairs.

Maple Lodge/The Motel
Maple Lodge incorporates the Motel and has 9 units, each with a private bath and each able to accomodate two to four people. It is conveniently located nearest the Dining Hall, with three meeting rooms of varying sizes under the same roof. After your nap, amble downstairs and soak your muscles in the relaxing whirlpool and saunas, before you stretch them all over again! On the first floor you will find additional washroom facilities and Stillbucks Lounge. Here, you can wrap your hands around a cup of tea, coffee, cappuccino, hot chocolate, or other seasonal beverage.

The Lodges
St. John's has access to two of the camp's lodges. Each Lodge has a common area with a forest view, a fireplace, showers, and washrooms. The Lodges provide well-appointed accommodations, suitable for groups of different sizes, and are a significant part of what makes Stillwood such a popular retreat and conference centre.
