Marriage Getaway

In today’s busy world, it’s sometimes hard to take time out for the things that matter the most. Our Marriage GetAways are designed to minimize distractions so you can get away, quiet down, and hear God speak in a beautiful setting at Maranatha Camp & Retreat Center.


You can expect excellent guest services from our Maranatha staff, comfortable accommodations, delicious food, practical Bible teaching aimed at couples, spiritual encouragement through songs of worship, and stories of hope from other couples that are seeking God’s leading in their marriage.

Additionally, we have a whole host of optional activities available to you and your spouse, Maranatha offers activities such as roller skating, climbing wall, coffee shop, nature trails, and much more. That being said, sometimes the best activity is inactivity — so relax in our hot tub, take a walk by the lake, or sit by a campfire with a cup of hot chocolate.
