Excursions (on and off campus)
As we get closer to our date, we will begin to list our excursions. We do ask that you sign up prior to coming so that we have ample enough time to find everyone a ride to the excursions. Some excursions will require pre-payment. Here are some ideas we are working on...
• Horseback Riding
• Biltmore Mansion
• Carl Sandburg Home
• Ziplining (on campus-small fee)
• Sliding Rock
• Apple Festival
• Shopping in Downtown Hendersonville/Flat Rock
• Jump Off Rock/Hiking
• Lake Lure
• Paint Class
Not your typical singles retreat! I love that the focus is on spiritual growth and encouragement. Meeting like-minded singles in a healthy, safe setting and going on fun excursions is just the icing on the cake! This is my “can’t miss” event of the year. - Lauran H., NC

Disc Golf Course
Bonclarken’s 18-hole disc golf course travels through wooded areas, open fields, and across streams. As a great, low impact activity, the course is very popular with all ages.
Bonclarken offers a variety of habitats including creeks, meadows, marshland, and wooded areas to observe birds and other wildlife. Click here for area birding information
A visit to the Bonclarken Gift Shop is a special trip indeed!
