Sonshine Wilderness Retreat (SWR) is a place in the Colorado wilderness for adults to get away from the daily distractions that may hinder their relationship with God. SWR provides opportunities for excursions into the wilderness to experience creation, allowing individuals to replenish their spirit by reconnecting with the Creator.
SWR offers a varying degree of adventure, ranging from relaxing at the base camp to multitude of daily excursions into the wilderness. SWR is partnering with local outfitters, such as hiking in the Collegiate Peaks, rafting the Arkansas River and zip lining the Big Horn Sheep Canyon, to give the total wilderness experience. With an ala carte style trip programing, SWR can customize the experience to a group’s liking. Each trip will also include a spiritual component, and SWR will work with the group leader to craft topical devotionals / spiritual activities tailored specifically for our group.
SWR is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) corporation located in central Colorado about three hours southwest of Denver and two hours west of Colorado Springs in the beautiful Arkansas River Valley in the areas of Salida and Buena Vista.
