The Thanksgiving Retreat is a long-standing tradition at IAWAH-- a great time to be by the lake. The fall colours are beautiful. Activities include archery, outdoor sports, and a voyageur canoe trip on Wolfe Lake. The retreat ends on Monday after breakfast. No meals to cook, pressures from work or digital distractions – just relaxed time to invest in family fun and relationships. The retreat is designed to provide a balance of organized activities and free time. Some of the activities you can anticipate include; climbing, canoeing, archery, hiking. Families may choose to stay in a winterized lodge room or bring their own trailer. Washrooms for winterized lodge rooms are either centrally located within the same building or are ensuite washrooms (varies by lodge).
