Winter Retreat is held during the holiday weekends in January and February each year. Campers are able to explore MHKC and the outdoors in the snow! The fun-filled weekend consists of snowshoeing through Camp, snow tubing, group and team-building games, arts and crafts, cooking, and of course, more time playing in the snow. Throughout the weekend, Campers get the unique experience to be in the kitchen, learning to prepare and cooking meals with the guidance from Staff. Winter Retreat offers a more independent program with a 2:1 ratio.


We are inviting any and all alumni campers who are eligible to be in a more independent program. Our January Retreat is designed for ages 12 years and older while or February Winter Retreat is only for ages 18 years and older. Due to the nature of winter weather, snow and ice, Campers must be able to navigate through winter weather with minimal assistance. For the complete list of eligibility standards, please contact the Programs Director at


Winter Retreat costs $514.50 per Camper ($464.50 Tuition and $50.00 Enrollment Processing Fee). Brokerage and Agency payments are accepted.
