Food Service

Food Service is available. Come together for a home-style meal!
Food allergies should be communicated to the staff prior to the retreat.  Due to our unique location and situation, we are unable to accommodate all dietary requests, but can meet certain requests. People with specialized diets may opt to bring their own meals in lieu of purchasing them through our Food Service.
You are welcome to prepare your own meals in the Koinonia Lodge or Retreat Center.   There is a kitchen use cleaning fee. You may also prepare your own meals, if you like, at the Frontier Town in Uncle Jack’s Roadhouse. 

Youth Groups

All youth events must be chaperoned by adults (18 or older) at a ratio of at least 1 adult per every 10 youth.  For co-ed groups, there must be at least one adult chaperone for each gender.  It is expected that chaperones will stay in the same rooms with the youth, although never one adult and one child in a room (except for immediate family).

Programming

Sugar Creek will be happy to help you plan activities or give you ideas for your retreat.  Professional, meaningful, memorable program planning is what we do. Contact our friendly Program Director to find out how to use all Sugar Creek offers to make your event the best yet!
Make the most of Sugar Creek! A modern camp is so much more than just a place to stay. We can help with special presentations, arrange guest speakers, lead worship, host activities, set up games, offer devotions, facilitate challenge course/team building, prepare a reflection labyrinth, light fireplaces, etc.  Let us know your goals, and we would be happy to assist!
