* SPACE STILL AVAILABLE for couples who would like the camping option; the lodge is currently full but we can inquire if nearby cabins are available.
NOTE: We are in the process of getting this retreat approved by each diocese in the state of Minnesota to count toward Marriage Preparation Retreat requirements.
Please do not bring electronic devices and put your phone completely away during the retreat; we want you to experience the great person you came with and the great outdoors without distraction!
BUT, I put up a pretty dang good fight for what felt like forever! I was not expecting our answers to match up much, but I was pleasantly pleased with our performance.
) I highly recommend acting like you used to in your youth and STAY UP LATE. ) When you’re excited for something, like work……either way, here is a pic of all of us staying up till the wee hours of the morning! The next day we set out on an adventurous four-wheeling trip. After dinner, I put together a great game to show us all how well we knew our dates. I downloaded all the questions for the game and cut them into strips.
If your destination is hours away like ours was, make a point to carpool with at least one other couple. You get to enjoy good company while getting pumped up about the weekend ahead of you.
Of course, if you ride with a “Jed” or “James'”, you will be told that you talk too much!
