Men’s Retreat Playlist
Below are songs from last year’s retreat. Once we get closer we’ll update this playlist with songs for our 2019 retreat.
Mark your calendars! Our Men will be returning to the Blue Ridge Mountains and staying at Ridge Haven camp the weekend of November 8-10 for our annual Men's Retreat. We do not have a price yet, but we’d like to encourage you to begin setting aside $10/month in preparation for the registration fee. If you’re nervous you’ll spend that money, feel free to give it to the church. Be sure to designate it for Men’s Retreat.
What to Know
Address and Driving
Ridge Haven is located at: 215 Ridge Haven Road, Brevard, NC 28712
It's typically about a 2 1/2 to 3 hour drive. We usually have some groups arrive earlier in the afternoon. You're welcome to come up early as well. If you can't get on the road until later (such as after work), anticipate the trip to take a little longer because of Friday afternoon/Weekend traffic.
When you get to Ridge Haven we are staying in Iverson Lodge (look for our signs). There's not a lot of parking at the lodge, so we encourage you to carpool with each other (plus, carpooling is a great way to connect with other men!) As we get closer to the retreat we’ll see about communicating any carpool options.
What to Bring
Bible, journal, and pen
Appropriate clothing and shoes, including athletic wear if you want to play in the annual Iron Bowl football game (there’s also talk of a baseball game taking place too). We’ll be in Brevard, NC if you’d like to look up the weather.
Linens and towels are provided, but you’re welcome to bring additional blankets or towel. Please note, depending on numbers, there’s a chance that some may have to sleep downstairs, at which point you would need to bring sheets or a sleeping bag for your bed. We will be in contact with you if that is the case.
Any toiletries / medicines / etc you'll need for the weekend. Toilet paper is provided.
Saturday afternoon we’ll have free time, so bring what you’ll need for this time (books to read, mountain bike, fishing gear, etc). Feel free to call Ridge Haven 828-862-3916 to learn more about other activities at the camp or in the area, and also to learn about fishing spots and where to get a NC fishing license. There is an area with a TV to watch football and also with WiFI
Please keep in mind, cell reception is very poor at the top of the mountain (in the past Verizon has had the most success, but event then isn’t great).
Breakfast/Lunch/Dinner on Saturday
Breakfast on Sunday
Bottled water, coffee, and juice
