What is a Retreat?

A place to refresh, inspire, renew and reconnect! 

All-inclusive Retreat Experience 

Retreats offer an opportunity to take a break from regular routines and find time for inspiration, connection, and renewal. YMCA Camp Potawotami retreats are designed according to your group's needs and wishes. We work with you to design the perfect schedule for your weekend retreat. Our caring and dedicated staff will provide leadership for our many camp activities and our 210 acres provide plenty of room for activities and exploration. Your retreat can be full of action and activities or a relaxing reflective experience. You get to decide what experience best fits the needs of your group. Join us for a weekend of memories that will last a lifetime! 

Sense of Belonging

Youth groups, school clubs, non-profits, churches, small businesses, teams and more find a sense of belonging through the shared experience of a group retreat. We can accommodate an action-packed weekend full of activities or simply provide meeting space for your group’s unique goals. YMCA Camp Potawotami is the perfect place to build a sense of belonging within your group.
