TCVC residential retreats are held at Koinonia Retreat Center in South Haven, MN. Koinonia provides breakfast, lunch, and dinner, as well as snacks (such as toast and fruit) during non-meal times. Accommodations include single and double rooms. Bedding, towels, and wash cloths are provided. Bathrooms may be shared in a dorm room style or private and are awarded by lottery. Single rooms do not necessarily have private bathrooms. Rooms have heat during the winter and air conditioning during the summer. The grounds provide paths for walking, a pond, a lake, and a labyrinth. Please pack appropriately for snowy, cold conditions for the winter retreat and warm, sunny conditions for the summer retreat, which might include tick-prevention measures for the summer months and a fan for your room if you choose.
