Spruce Lake Retreat is a Christian conference and retreat center located in the Pocono Mountains in northeastern Pennsylvania. Accommodations at Spruce Lake Retreat include hotel, motel, inn-style rooms, kitchenette suites (all with private bathrooms), mountainside lodges (which accommodate 12-16 people), bunkhouse-style lodges and cabins as part of our Wilderness Camp, and a family campground for tent camping and small RVs). There are plenty of things to do outside and inside – regardless of the time of year you visit us. Hike along one of 7 woodland trails or compete in a friendly game of basketball, volleyball, or tennis. Throw horseshoes, quoits, or play shuffleboard. Enjoy a round of miniature golf on our professionally-designed course. During the summertime, make a splash in our heated, outdoor swimming pool. Make memories with your kids on our playground. We also have a ball field and gaga court available most of the year (during mid-June through mid-August, these areas are reserved for our summer camp program). During the winter (weather-permitting), guests love our tubing hill, snowshoeing through the woods, or ice skating outside. Christian groups can enjoy our challenge courses, zip lines, high ropes courses, and more – all of which are great for team building exercises. See more activities available at Spruce Lake Retreat by visiting our website. We’re conveniently located within a 3 hours of New York City, Philadelphia, New Jersey, and Delaware. Visit our website or give us a call to make reservations or to find out more about us. We’d love to help you plan your Christian group’s Pocono Mountains getaway!
