This is the Family Retreat that started them all! Situated in the beautiful Pocono Mountains of Pennsylvania, this historic retreat is held every year on the campus of the Spruce Lake Conference Center. Swimming, hiking, canoeing, and singing around the campfire with S’mores are perennial favorites of the families. Serving the eastern region of the US, this beloved Family Retreat is organized by our Joni and Friends Eastern Pennsylvania and Greater Philadelphia team.
