Island Lake Christian Retreat Centre is an ideal setting to host church related activities, family reunions or other events. Nestled into the hill alongside beautiful Island Lake in the scenic Rocky Mountains of the historic Crowsnest Pass, the centre includes ample meeting space and outdoor recreation opportunities.

The Centre is located along the continental divide between Alberta and British Columbia. This year-round facility is nestled into a secluded, wind-free location alongside Island Lake. It has a conference room, dining room capacity for 100 and a fully equipped commercial kitchen. Overnight capacity is in excess of 75 with 16 private bedrooms on the main floor and 7 large dormitory style rooms on the lower floor. Both levels have beautiful stone fireplaces and there is a large sunny balcony overlooking Island Lake and surrounding mountain peaks.

Local recreational possibilities are endless, including hiking, fishing, biking, horseback riding, skiing (cross country or downhill) and snowmobiling. Plan to enjoy the lake and the several trails surrounding the centre or discover some of the excellent hiking trails within a few minutes’ drive. Fernie Ski Hill is only forty minutes away and the nearby Sparwood Recreation Centre has an excellent indoor swimming pool.

Island Lake Christian Retreat Centre is a registered non-profit organization offering programming and encouraging facility use for spiritual enrichment and activities for individuals, youth and families. You bring the ideas and we have the facility to accommodate your group.
