Feel free to bring along any additional snacks or drinks along!
If you would like to come with a friend or a group please tell us their names when you purchase your ticket so that we can try our best to keep you together for the weekend.

THE HEN HOUSES ARE FULL! All tickets are sold out. Last year we were surprised that over 100 women attended our first retreat. We really enjoyed our time but after much thought and prayer we have decided to intentionally cut the event's attendance in half, only allowing 50 women attend. This will keep the event more intimate and less conference-like. This is quality time! Come rest in the grace and forgiveness found in Jesus. The life changing gospel will be found in the retreat's teaching, live worship, and conversations (or silences) in between.
Want to slow down time and make quality memories with your Christian friends? Share our FLOCK retreat with your women's ministry, moms' group, or even with the women in your family! FLOCK is geared towards women regardless of age or current place in life - that's what our group is all about!
Follow our Facebook event page where we announce retreat details and you can directly invite your friends there. We will be revealing more #FlockRetreat18 behind the scenes work on Instagram during the months leading up to the event as well.

WHEN IS THE TICKET DEADLINE?
The hen houses are full! Tickets are already sold out!
DO I HAVE TO BRING A PHYSICAL TICKET TO THE RETREAT?
No. We will have your name on the guest list. Please bring along your driver license or other identification.
WHAT ARE THE LODGING ARRANGEMENTS?
Each attendee will have an assigned bed in a lodge. There are some lodges that have a mix of queen beds, twin beds, and even bunk beds (only a few!). If you are willing to share a queen bed or bunk bed with a friend please let us know when you select your ticket options.
HOW CAN I MAKE SURE THAT I SHARE A LODGE WITH MY FRIEND(S)?
When you purchase your ticket, type the names of your friends that you want to lodge with to best ensure that you will be together. With fewer tickets being available this year please make sure that you purchase the tickets promptly in case they sell out.
IS THE RETREAT ONLY FOR MOMS?
No. We try to cover all of the bases when it comes to Christian women: in their 20s, single, married without children, mothers of littles, empty-nesters, etc. We are confident women in all places of life will find enjoyment in the retreat!
CAN I BRING FOOD AND DRINK ALONG?
Yes! Each lodge conveniently has a refrigerator, oven, microwave, and dishwasher. They are also furnished with cups, silverware, and dinnerware. We do ask that when you checkout you leave the lodge as you found it and wash the last load of dishes in the dishwasher.
CAN I BRING MY BABY ALONG?
Unfortunately, no. We understand all too well the need for moms to have a retreat away. However, for the sake of the other women who are hoping to enjoy a full night sleep or less distraction we ask that you wait to attend another year. We truly do love babies! Thank you for understanding!
IS THE RETREAT CASUAL OR FORMAL? WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?
The retreat is definitely casual. Bring warm comfy clothes - yoga pants and flannel tops if you like best! We also recommend that you bring along a winter jacket, hat, and gloves as Wisconsin weather can change rapidly.
WHAT IS THE REFUND POLICY?
There are no refunds allowed with this type of event. We will allow you to swap the ticket with another person but you are responsible for finding them and notifying us of the change. Thank you for understanding!
