At SON-Life Camp and Retreat Center, we are more than just a summer camp.  We are open throughout the entire year to help you make the best memories with your family, friends and co-workers! We are located on 40 acres of beautiful property alongside Round Lake.

With our versatile facility, we can equip you to host an unforgettable event. Whether it be family party, a church, school or business retreat, or wedding - we have options for you!

We offer tours for those who would like to see our property. However, we will have to have all tours scheduled.  This is a great time to vision cast your retreat here and get any questions you have answered.  Please call or email our office to schedule a time for your tour!
