What Makes Brownell Children's Retreat a Great Choice for Group Rentals?

The Brownell Children’s Retreat is set in a serene, tranquil and rejuvenating location; it is a perfect setting for weddings, family reunions, corporate training retreats, church youth groups, summer camps and much more!

We have plenty of accommodations including main lodge dorm-style rooms with bunk beds, heated and un-heated cabins and full-service and non-serviced RV sites. Our main lodge and four (4) new cabins have just received brand new, hypo-allergenic, impermeable mattresses!!

Why not have a picnic behind the lodge on the James River, skip some rocks on the pond or maybe end your day with a campfire in the story telling area.

On the grounds of the Brownell Children’s Retreat you will find something for everyone including a baseball field, soccer field, full-size volleyball net, tether-balls, and our Roundhouse which has a stage which is great for talent-shows, a large floor which is great for showing off your great dance moves at a reunion and basketball nets for an indoor activity on a really hot or rainy day.

One big attraction, sure not to be missed when viewing our facility, is our beautiful new playground near the RV Sites, which was built with love by our amazing volunteers from across the province. Across the property often echoes the children’s laughter from the playground and
our new outdoor musical instruments which are unable to play a bad note.

Our caretakers live on site and are always available during your event to meet and address any of your questions or needs.
