The Wayumi retreat experience will give you and your group a bird's eye view of the still-unreached people groups of the world. It will open your eyes to what it takes to reach these groups.

Come to our campus in Pennsylvania for a weekend retreat as a group, an individual or family — to discover:

  • What God is doing today in reaching out to unreached people groups through His Church.
  • What missionaries experience as they teach unreached people groups.
  • The major challenges of cross-cultural ministry — culture and language.
  • All of the ministries involved in taking the Gospel to isolated people groups.

Program Details

The Retreat runs from supper on Friday through lunch on Sunday. Participants should plan to arrive Friday afternoon between 4 pm and 6 pm.

Groups of any size are welcome.  Our campus can accommodate up to 50 - 75 people in total, depending on the make up of various groups i.e. churches, families, youth groups and college groups.  Our staff work to coordinate with groups of all sizes to see a weekend come together.

Weekend Retreats are for Large Groups, Small groups or Individuals

If a Wayumi Retreat appeals to you, and you do not have a group minimum of 25 or more and want to come as an individual, couple, family or small group, we can work with you and other groups to combine to meet the 25 participant minimum.  Contact us to find which weekends would work for you!

Looking for a Retreat for Your Youth Group?                                           Click on the "Quest" link

Wayumi Quest attendees come as a youth group along with your youth leaders, who serve as chaperones. Our staff takes care of all sessions and activities, which frees your leaders up to spend time with your students.

The sessions are interesting and fun while exposing your students to the biblical basis for reaching unreached people for Christ and challenging them to get involved. Our team is made up of veteran missionaries who have served on the mission field for many years in some of the most remote places on earth.

The students will also be involved in activities and games and they'll even have time to just hang out in the Activity Center or play in the Gym. Human Foosball is one of the favorites in the Activity Center.


Your next step is to register your group.  After registering your group, individual members of the group will also need to register so that we can begin assigning accommodations and plan for any specific needs.  We would recommend that group organizers plan at least 6 months ahead and individuals should register no less than one month prior to the retreat date.  However, contact us at any time to check availability.
