Romantic Adventure: Challenge Course

August 16 - August 18, 2024

WinShape Retreat - Rome, GA

Retreat Description

Do you and your spouse ever feel like careers, children, and daily chores get in the way of prioritizing “play” in your marriage? Would you describe yourselves as adventurous? If so, Challenge Course is for you. This time away will be exhilarating, high-energy, and fast-paced. You’ll head to our epic challenge course immediately following dinner Friday night. Rain or shine, you’ll spend the weekend outdoors conquering high and low ropes challenges together and leaning into fun. You’ll engage with and learn about each other in a new way and strengthen your marital health.  

Key Takeaways

  • Hands-on opportunities to grow in your marriage by accomplishing challenges together 
  • Space to step out of your comfort zone and bring aspects of adventure to light again 
  • Tips for how to make “fun” and “play” a priority in your marriage again 
  • Encouragement for your marriage while reconnecting in new ways 

Retreat Restrictions

  • There is a maximum weight limit of 275 lbs. to participate on the Challenge Course.
  • We discourage pregnant women or those with movement restrictions from registering for Romantic Adventure: Challenge Course as you may not be able to fully participate in the weekend.

How It Works


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 using the button below 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 retreat upon arrival, but you can expect breakfast, lunch, and dinner. You’ll have free time throughout the retreat, 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 Marriage Retreat, 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
