Couples Retreat

couples retreat 2016

Lake Ann Camp is excited to offer two unique experiences for couples this winter. While our facilities are top-notch, and our food by executive chef Darrel Kirby is exceptional, we think you’ll enjoy this getaway, even more, because of the challenging teaching and practical advice your marriage will receive.

Each couple will have their own private room with private bath. Prices are listed below and are based on the type of accommodations you would like to stay in. While some of our rooms are smaller and more cozy, all of them are comfortable with plenty of space to unwind and relax.

Your weekend getaway will also include activity options on our property, some based on the weather. Our March group should come prepared for snow, and opportunity to hit our tubing hill, enjoy some snow shoeing and other fun winter activities. The April retreat could also include snow (be sure to check the weather or call ahead before you leave!) but also involve just about any type of northern Michigan spring weather!

Our 800’ zip line will be open, laser tag for couples will be available and of course, plenty of time to rest, enjoy time together in front of one of our many fire places on campus, as well as a chance to sip hot coffee from our Red Canoe coffee shop and camp store.

We hope to see you this winter/spring for one (or both!) of our couples retreats!

Speakers & Dates

March 4-6 – Mike Lane

Mike has served as pastor of Glen Memorial Baptist Church in St. Ignace, MI since 2002. Prior to his pastoral ministry, Mike worked on staff at Lake Ann Camp and was also a carpenter for 11 years. Leeanne grew up in Traverse City, MI and has enjoyed a life-long connection to Lake Ann Camp. Mike’s family is from rural western New York. They met at Cedarville University and have been married for 27 years. They have five children: Ben, married to Cayla, Zach, engaged to Courtney, Carolyn, Elizabeth, and Peter and two grandsons: Ryan and Fitz. Mike’s interests include woodworking and reading history and theology, while Leeanne loves playing and teaching piano.


April 7-9 – Craig MillerCraigMiller

Craig Miller serves as Senior Pastor of Grace Baptist Church in Cedarville Ohio, a diverse congregation that ministers to both a rural community and a university population. From hog roasts and harvest celebrations to classroom debates and preaching to a dozen biblical scholars in the fellowship, ministry at Grace covers a fairly wide spectrum. Craig loves to teach the Bible in diverse settings, including preaching, Bible studies, leadership classes, written articles, blogging, conferences, and the classroom as adjunct faculty at Cedarville University and The Master’s College. He has a passion for missions and regularly travels to various fields to learn more about God’s worldwide activity, to aid in recruiting workers and resources, and to encourage missionary personnel through counsel and prayer. Born in Virginia, raised in Michigan, and with half a lifetime spent in California, Craig now considers himself a happily settled Ohioan, although he still misses beaches and mountains. California will always be special to him, since he met and married his wife, Kathy, there. Married for 31 years, they are parents to three adult children, Rebekah, Christine (married to Dave), and Nathan, grandparents to one grandson, and one granddaughter. He has already used up his fifteen minutes of fame, having been a losing contestant on Jeopardy! in the late 80s.
