Retreat to the Woods

Retreat to the Woods is a fall weekend of fellowship, relaxation, and renewal for the whole family. It takes place at Baker Outdoor Learning Center in Medina, MN in a quiet and protected setting surrounded by 3,300 acres of marshes, meadows, and mature forest. Participants enjoy great food, music, hiking and biking trails, canoeing, campfires, crafts/games, and a variety shows. Activities are organized/provided by Baker OLC naturalists and FUS members. 

The site has a tenting area and eight log cabins. Each cabin has a wood-burning stove and eight bunk beds with mattresses. There are full restrooms at the main lodge, where all food is prepared and group events occur. Baker does not allow pets.

Join us in this celebration of community for all ages.


The Retreat is typically scheduled on the first weekend in October. It starts on Friday evening and ends the following Sunday afternoon.

On-line registration is established prior to each event.
