Adventure Retreat

Join us at Meramec Caverns for a weekend retreat!

Meramec Caverns

August 12-14

Join us for a weekend retreat at Meramec Caverns. We have lots of adventures planned! Participate in as much or as little as you want!

Friday is a free day. Feel free to fill you time with whatever your family would like to do. There are lots of things to do around Meramec Caverns; hiking, biking, swimming (at your own risk), zipline ($), rockwall ($), and even a wax museum ($).

  • You may decide to show up on Saturday only. That's fine with us.

On Saturday, we will plan a group cave tour in the morning, a river float in the afternoon, and a cookout that evening. We would love to have as many families as possible participate on Saturday.

On Sunday, we will have breakfast and outdoor church together. After that you are free to head home or find one more adventure!

A few things you'll need to know:

Sleeping arrangements

  • Are you staying 1 night, 2 nights, or no nights?
  • Will you sleep in a tent, camper, or hotel?
