Summit Lake is the perfect place to find seclusion and freedom from distractions to facilitate building relationships with God and group members. The lodges are ideally laid out for Kairos and other small- group retreats — separate bedrooms with private bath facilities and a meeting room in each lodge. For larger groups — multiple lodges and/or cabins are available along with larger meeting rooms.
Summit Lake is a short 20-minute drive from Liberty Mountain. Bag lunches are available to take with you if you want to ski all day. Or spend part of the day in instructional gatherings and ski between lunch and supper. The evenings are free for fellowship and study. Night skiing is also available at Liberty Mountain.
The Gettysburg National Park is just 20 minutes from Summit Lake (see also Middle Creek — www.middlecreekbible.org — which is less than 10 minutes from Gettysburg and can accommodate groups as small as 20 or as large as 90). Tour the battlefields and take advantage of the new Visitors’ Center in downtown Gettysburg. This is a perfect trip for older elementary students and secondary students who are studying U.S. history.
