You will be given your rooming assignment when you arrive for check in. Our housing accommodations are primarily cabin style with bunk beds. You will need to bring your own bedding to put on the bare mattresses.

If you are the guest of someone who invited you, please let us know during the registration process, so that we can ensure you are able to room together.


While the majority of our programming spaces are accessible to all, there are some lodging accommodations we’ll be using at Bair Lake that are only accessible by stairways. Also, all cabins are bunk-based, which means 50% of you will be on a top bunk. If you have mobility or accessibility needs related to accommodations, please let us know during the registration process.


On Friday evening—a “heavy snack” will be provided to all participants.

On Saturday—breakfast, lunch, and dinner will all be provided.

Coffee will also be available.


Bair Lake Bible Camp is able to address most food allergy needs, provided that they are aware well in advance of the retreat dates. Please make note of any food allergies we should be aware of when you register.

Is this different than Bair Lake's annual men's retreat?

Yes, this retreat is being exclusively developed by Gospel City Church, Gospel Community Church, and Harvest Lakeshore. These churches are partnering together to develop all of the programming and activities.

There will be plenty of time to fellowship with one another and we’ll have some organized activities. However, following activities will NOT be part of our time together (Trap Shooting, the Stand, Zipline, Climbing Tower, High Ropes Course).
