The Homeschool Family Retreat is a great opportunity for home-schooling families to get away and be refreshed and encouraged, with many opportunities to network with other families, be challenged from the Bible, and enjoy the many fun activities thatSilver Birch Ranch has to offer.

Retreat Speaker - Dr. Rich H. Hess


Our speaker this year will be Dr. Rich Hess, who has 20 years of teaching experience at Nicolet Bible Institute coupled with years of Christian service in youth ministry at Silver Birch Ranch. He also served as a linguist in the Macu tribe in Colombia, South America for nearly a decade prior to coming to SBR. Rich will engage young and old on the topic “Road Trip.”
