Theme to be announced soon
~Registration below is open!~
The theme for 2016 was Extraordinary Marriage
Sessions in 2016 included:
What Language Do You Speak? (Christy Preston)
Ordinary Moments That Impact Your Relationship (panel discussion)
Managing the Mundane for a Marvelous Marraige (Joseph Preston)
Why should you attend a married couples retreat at WLD Ranch?
We are convinced that strengthening your relationship with your spouse should be a priority for every married couple. But building and maintaining a strong relationship with your spouse is not easy. Our Married Couples Retreats are our way of helping you strengthen your marriage in the midst of a fun weekend with your spouse. Our sessions are not of the variety that say “do these three things in your marriage and you’ll have a perfect life.” Marriage is not like that. We want everyone at the retreat to have lots of fun in WLD Ranch style, but we also want to address deep issues for strengthening your marriage.
We design the retreats around what we believe are some key characteristics of any camp experience: friendships (the relationship with your spouse is the one we're most concerned about in these retreats), focused learning (that's the sessions part), faith development (your spiritual life is extremely important in having a strong marital relationship), and fun (camp is supposed to be fun!). So plan to attend (with your spouse, of course!) and invite other married couples to come along!

Because we have very limited couples' housing, couples’ lodging will be available at the Polish Baptist Centre just up the hill from us. You will need to bring your own bedding and toiletries. Rooms will be private with shared restrooms down the hall.
You are also welcome to stay at home, with friends, or seek other lodging locally.
There will not be childcare provided, keeping the focus of the retreat on married couples. (Nursing infants may come with their parents.)
