The Retreat Center is so warm and inviting. The accomodations are beautiful and I have always had an amazing experience being there. I believe that the everyone at the Retreat Center really cares about their occupants and wants their experiences to be the best. You could not ask for a more beautiful and fulfilling space to have an event.
Retreat Campus is truely a great place with a great atmosphere,great staff, Clean enviroment. Easy to get to and very enviting .and also easy to get to than most places, I have been longing to see my Children to get serious about God and His word and also to see a growth in our Church so I have been looking for place where I can get alone and seek the Lord about this and when I came to Retreat ,oh was I greatful for their amenities and the enviroment.

The Retreat Campus is beautiful, the staff friendly and helpful, and it's a great environment for retreat. I did a 5-day silent retreat in a quaint, private cabin. The staff tried very hard to get me a spiritual director that would be a good fit, and I ended up Skyping with a previous director for daily conversations. The staff gave me a private room for an hour each day so I could talk on the computer with him, and it worked very well. I was very impressed with the facilities, the setting, and especially the staff. I will try to go back again and highly recommend it for either personal or group retreats!
I have been a student of the Course in Miracles for eight years and counting. I had attended various study groups over a few years and became affiliated with Louise Dunn a long time CIM student herself and founder of Heartland Miracles. When the last study group I was attending moved to the opposite side of town, I began looking for a facility where I could facilitate a study group. I talked to Louise about this. I did not know it at the time but Louise was preparing to introduce the CIM to The Campus Retreat. The introduction created enough interest to begin a study group at the Retreat. Louise asked if I was interested, and I said of course, especially since the Retreat is located in beautiful Owen County, where I had lived and raised my sons previously. Judi Butler, owner of The Campus Retreat has generously welcomed others with a desire to study the CIM to her facility.
My time at the Retreat Campus provided crucial time to be still and listen to God. As a missionary serving in HR/Recruitment, we are always connecting or communicating with someone. Time in the cabins was a great way to be disconnected from the rest of the world and dig into God's Word and pray. God used this time studying in His Word and meditating on a few sermons to speak to me about some obedience and healing that needed to happen in my heart and life. Praise God for how He restores. Quiet time before Him has been crucial as He has called me to move to a new assignment, serving overseas ministering with women and children impacted by poverty and trafficking. I am so thankful for the ministry of the Retreat Campus! And when I move overseas in January, it will continue to be a comfort to know that there are places like the Retreat Campus that provide time and space for not only missionaries but believers in general to get away and hear from the Lord. It is amazing to know that this staff is committed to praying for others' renewal!
I visited the retreat campus in the summer of 2012 for a prayer retreat. The little log cabin I stayed in was great and the price was very reasonable. I loved the restful grounds and woods, and I had a very good experience that brought restoration to my soul.
I have been so very blessed to volunteer time at the Retreat Campus this year. Judi Butler and her staff are some of the friendliest and most consientious people I have ever met. This beautiful Campus is most certainly a Haven of Rest for the weary soul who needs quality time to get away and reflect on the prioritys of ones life. The Retreat House is a most spacious accomodation with an interior decor that is top of the line as was stated to me by a Pastor who recently spent some quality time at our facility. There are two cabins on the grounds named Trinity and Grace that reflect the same peaceful presence as the Retreat House and from all three buildings one can view the most beautiful lake that God ever created. As you take time to meander through the many trails you will come across a most beautiful quaint Prayer Cabin where you can spend some quality time with the One living God who created you and spend time in prayer and Thanksgiving for all the many blessings He sends your way. I highly recommend this Home away from home experience to refresh and renew ones quality of life. I am so thankful we have such a beautiful Retreat Campus in the beautiful hills of Owen County Indiana!
I recently stayed at Retreat Campus and had a great time. The cabin was clean and had everything needed. The walking trails, prayer cabin and even the simple porch with rocking chairs all set the mood for solitude and relaxation. It is a great place to have meetings, educational classes, or a quiet place for one person.
I am the Director of Women's Ministry at our church and was searching for a retreat center, hotel, or lodge to take my leadership team for some needed R&R. I found the most perfect, peaceful and relaxing site called The Retreat Campus. The location and accommodations were perfect for our 24-hour stay. We could not be more pleased with what it had to offer - all the modern amenities - at an affordable price. We've already booked next year's retreat!
I have known Judi Butler for 7 years. As long as I have known her, The Retreat Campus has been a dream and vision in her heart to offer a place of peace, renewal, a refreshment for the soul; relaxation to anyone in a leadership position as well as individuals seeking to reconnect with their Creator though a private, secluded setting. It has been a real blessing to see this vision become reality and serve on the board of directors. I have heard nothing but positive remarks from many of our guests who have stayed at The Retreat Campus. As the future unfolds day by day, it is exciting to see what God will continue to do as the plans to grow The Retreat Campus marches on. Lives are truly blessed after staying at The Retreat Campus. Thank you Judi, for allowing our Lord to use you in such a powerful and selfless way. You have a BIG, BIG heart!
The Retreat Campus provides more than just a place to spend the night, more than just a getaway, even more than just a quiet, scenic haven in the woods. Its attention to detail as in contemporary yet contemplative decor, plush towels and comfortable beds, high speed wi fi, along with incredibly reasonable rates makes it the perfect place to bring a group. The staff is amazing with its support in marketing open retreats and a willingness to help with navigating local food choices and area destinations. The Heartland Christian Writers Retreat plans on making the Retreat Campus our ongoing site. We've recommended it to all the churches and nonprofits we're affiliated with. The Retreat Campus is simply amazing in its special care and concern.
My wife and I were incredibly blessed by our stay at the retreat campus. The facilities and the grounds are absolutely spectacular. We praise God for our time there.
My leadership team and I stayed in one of the smaller cabins on a retreat to pray and brainstorm for the upcoming year. The retreat campus was beautiful and allowed us to set many goals for the year, and grow together as a group. The staff was amazing! A member of our church offered to pay for the trip, and the staff worked with me to set things up and our church member to pay separately. We plan on using the retreat campus again for future events.
I pulled the Retreat Campus out of a search engine and had no idea that they would help facilitate a truly life-changing spiritual experience for me. I am a parish priest of a small rural church, leading a congregation on my own for the first time. Having completed just over a year in this position, I was feeling exhausted, anxious about the future of my church and my ministry, and desperately in need of spiritual retreat. I found the Retreat Campus on Google when both of the other places I was considering were full the week I wanted to retreat. I know now it was God's hand guiding me to this remarkable place. What struck me the most about the Retreat Campus was the fact that I could actually feel the love of the staff in every small detail of their ministry there. Every interaction I had with them was kind and supportive. They truly wanted me to have a peaceful and healing time with God away from the world, and in part because of their hard work, I was able to experience an intimacy with God that I have never felt before in my life. The surroundings they created and the love with which they permeate the housing and grounds truly shines through. I felt cared for and loved, which allowed me to let go into the experience God was creating for me. My ministry and my life have been changed and improved by the experience I had at the Retreat Center.
Beauty, quiet and a spirit of joy all characterize the atmosphere at the Retreat Campus in Quincy, IN. I am a newcomer to Indiana from Northern California and a writer, speaker and spiritual director. The Retreat Campus reached out to me to offer a sabbatical time away. At the time I didn't know that part of their mission is to support those who serve in ministry. I had been doing my ministry for years and was guilty of NOT taking good enough care of myself. I was also tired from the move and the activity of getting my family settled and happy in our new Indiana home. What a gift my day at The Retreat Campus was. I am looking for ways to collaborate and lend my own work and experience to this wonderful place and wonderful people who run it. I will be back both to serve, and to rest in the Lord!
The Retreat Campus is a wonderful place for your organization or church to take a break from the busy pace of life. Judi and the entire staff will help to make your event a huge success. They add the personal touch helping to make my own conference on the campus very successful by having everything set up and organizing a delicious lunch for our participants. As the CEO of Fountains of Hope, I heartily recommend the Retreat Campus for your next retreat!
