Our weekend Promise: “We are going to know a new FREEDOM and a new HAPPINESS … we will comprehend the word SERENITY and we will know PEACE.” 

How?  Through working the 12-Steps of AA in fellowship with others.  Each 12-Step will be inspired by a recovering alcoholic sharing their experience, strength and hope; followed by intimate, small-group breakouts or one-on-one. 

The weekend offers abundant flexibility for prayer and meditation, self-reflection and sponsor led step work - “Many of us like the experience of an occasional retreat from the outside world where we can quiet down for an undisturbed day or so of self-overhaul and meditation.”  – AA .    Nothing is mandatory. This is not a silent retreat or a socializing weekend.  There is plenty of time to enjoy the lakefront grounds and the fellowship of other recovering people as desired. 

This is not a religious or silent retreat.  Our primary purpose is to stay sober and help other alcoholics to achieve sobriety.
