Christian Homeschool Family Retreat


  • Silver Birch Ranch N6120 Sawyer Lake Road White Lake, WI, 54491 United States (map)

Come join us for the Christian Homeschoolers’ Family Retreat, Aug. 24-27, 2017. Enjoy, with other families, the peaceful beauty of Silver Birch Ranch in the northwoods of Wisconsin.

Activities here are multi-generational and family members participate in events together. So, we hope you’ll invite Grandma and Grandpa as well. We want to honor them by making their first retreat free! Make sure you bring your teens and twenties too. They have become a respected and respectable force at this retreat…a great blessing.
