Men's Breakaway
Men's Breakaway

God calls men to be the godly heads of their household. To lead with wisdom and truth even in a broken world. Our Men's Breakaway christian retreat is the perfect opportunity to take an intentional step to be challenged to go deeper in your faith. And it is a fantastic time to get away with the guys!

With a chance to be out in the fresh air of Mary Lake in Muskoka, this is a christian retreat for men in Ontario that offers not only two days of wilderness, competitive fun and a chance to get away from it all, but also a time to renew and restore.

Our hope is that this event will compel and equip you to be fully alive in your relationship with God, be a blessing to your home communities and have a great time building new friendships and camaraderie with other men as we play, pray, worship and learn together.
