Saturday Get-a-Way Retreat

Saturday Get-a-Way is a once a month, day long retreat for international students, scholars, workers, and their families. Our farm is located within an hour of many colleges, major universities, and cities in Georgia, and Eastern Alabama.


Get-Away to Rest:   A time to retreat from the stress of a new culture

We know that living in a new country can be very stressful– language study, classes, work, or just the stress of learning a new way of life. Our desire is to give you a day away from it all, and a chance to interact with nature in the peaceful countryside.

Guests arrive in the morning for outdoor activities, including nature walks, bird watching, outdoor games, and gardening. After lunch (included), guests participate in optional nature craft activities or Bible stories, and free time which can include music, reading, photography, or just relaxing on our porches. During rainy or cold weather, we spend more time inside, relaxing around the fire and playing games.
Come and rest a while!

Get-Away to Practice:   A time to work on conversational English in a relaxed atmosphere
Since our family has lived overseas in a different culture, we understand the stress of always trying to listen to and learn a new language. We love international friends and want to help you adjust to the United States and have the best experience possible while you are here.
Come and practice your English with us!

Get-Away to Experience:   A time to participate in life with an American family
We know that many international friends come to the United States and leave without ever being in the home of an American family. We want to change that. We welcome you to our home, and we are happy to share our lives with you!
Come and experience new friendships!

Saturday Get-a-Ways happen the 2nd Saturday of every month.
