Family Retreat

Relax, Refresh, Rejuvenate.

The Christian Horizons Family Retreat is a unique opportunity for families living with disability to enjoy a vacation together in a safe, fun and rejuvenating atmosphere. 

A Family Retreat encourages and uplifts your family by providing many opportunities for fun and relaxation. You will connect with other families who live with disability and also be encouraged by the Word of God through teaching, worship and fellowship.  

Time for your family to relax and enjoy

Family Retreat Volunteers are trained volunteers who assist you through each day’s activities, ensuring that your family is able to experience everything the retreat has to offer.

Costs to families are kept low as Family Retreat Volunteers raise their own funds to attend. There are a limited number of sponsorships available to help families further reduce costs.

We hope that you will join us for the second annual Saskatchewan Christian Horizons Family Retreat at Camp Kinasao!

The camp boasts an array of amenities - including waterfront access, canoeing, kayaking, hiking trails, a wood fired hot tub, sauna, outdoor covered fire pit, volleyball court, three play structures, and much more. The camp is connected by a series of paved paths and all of the main areas and two large bath houses are wheelchair accessible. We are excited to welcome you and your family for four days of fun and fellowship.

We have several fun activities planned and each family will be assigned at least one volunteer to assist them throughout the day. We will also have times for prayer and worship together. All activities are optional, so whether you want to lounge by the beach or take part in planned events, we have something for everyone!
