Testimonials

“My favorite part of the weekend was the chance to get away with my spouse and be able to focus on just the two of us. We also enjoyed meeting other couples and getting to play and have fun together.”

Susan C.

“Our favorite part of the weekend was the many opportunities for play whether through field games, minute to win it games, or free time. It was wonderful having the opportunity to experience purposeful play and how we can implement it into our everyday life and how it will positively impact our marriage. We felt spoiled all weekend, and we left the weekend refreshed and our cups overflowing with love for Jesus and each other. We are excited to be intentional in our marriage by implementing play and look forward to attending our next WinShape Marriage Retreat!”

Callie I.

“I loved trying new experiences with my husband and building a stronger bond with him as well as God. I also loved interacting with the other couples and the community we built in such a short time!”

How It Works

FAQs

Where are you located?

WinShape Retreat is located on the campus of Berry College in Rome, GA, approximately 1.5 hours northwest of Atlanta, GA. 

What do we need to bring?

The dress for your retreat will be very casual. Please bring comfortable clothing for the entire weekend, including Sunday morning. We recommend at least one pair of pants, a light jacket, and layers in case of colder weather, rain, etc. You’ll also need closed-toe/closed-heel shoes (preferably athletic shoes). Romantic Adventures operate rain or shine, so bring extra clothes/shoes as needed. On Saturday, you’ll have the opportunity to have a professional photo taken by our on-site photographer. If you’d like to bring a nicer outfit you can, though this is not required. Bring all personal toiletries, including any medicines you’re currently taking. You may want to bring a Bible, small book bag, and water bottle. You will not need any money during your stay as lodging, meals, snacks, and programming are included in your registration fee.

Do you provide counseling at Marriage Retreats?

Our Marriage Retreats do not provide time for one-on-one counseling with the speakers or any other staff members. If you feel you may need more in-depth help or your marriage may be in crisis, please contact us or check out WinShape Marriage Intensives. 

What does the schedule look like, and will we have free time?

You’ll receive a detailed schedule of the weekend upon arrival, but you can expect breakfast, lunch, and dinner as well as a few casual learning sessions in addition to the adventure activities you’ll be participating in. You’ll have free time throughout the weekend, where you’re welcome to explore the beautiful campus on one of the many walking or biking trails. We also have a variety of other activities and games available. You can play pickleball, play disc golf, fish, hike, play board games, read, relax in a hammock, and more! Feel free to bring your own bikes, equipment, and games, but we also have everything you’ll need available for checkout.

What is your reservation policy?

The full amount of the event will be charged to your credit card at the time of the reservation. Once your card is charged, your payment is nonrefundable. If your plans change, your reservation can be transferred to another event within one year of the originally scheduled experience. This must be done at least 30 days prior to the event, or a $75.00 transfer fee will be assessed. If you do not transfer your reservation prior to the event, you will no longer be able to transfer, and all payments will be forfeited. 

After a Romantic Adventure, You’ll Be:

  • Strengthened in your relationship with the Lord 
  • Renewed in your intimacy with your spouse 
  • Inspired to continue prioritizing your marriage 
  • Encouraged by others walking similar paths 
  • Refreshed and rejuvenated to return home
