marriage & family retreat

Friday, December 6, 2024 – Sunday, December 8, 2024

This experience gave us the opportunity to reconnect and give us tools in a safe place to address issues which needed to be attended to. It gave me the opportunity to let down my guard and open my heart to the Lord.

— Past Attendee


This is a marriage retreat like you have never done before. No need to find a babysitter…bring the family along!

Improve your marriage under the teaching and counsel of Dr. Lee and Kirsten Hildebrand while enjoying the full service and peaceful atmosphere of Living Waters Bible Camp

our speakers

Join us as we welcome the Dr. Lee and Kirsten Hildebrand.  The Hildebrands are long-time friends of Living Waters; they have enjoyed camp both as campers and as speakers. Dr. Lee offers marriage and family counseling, utilizing interactive teaching. Kirsten assists couples as a lawyer, speaking at women’s retreats and conferences. Both have seen the harmful effects of neglect on marriage. Together, they have led marriage seminars while incorporating a Biblical perspective.


Our marriage sessions will be for mom and dad only. Sessions for couples are accompanied by programs for children. The sessions are encounter style which means couples sit in a large group circle with other couples. The facilitators will introduce a topic for discussion and couples share their experience, thoughts, and challenges on the topic. Some find the group share time intimidating but Dr. Lee and Kirsten do a great job of creating a trust-centered and comfortable place for all to willingly share.

Our time will include; Challenging Sessions, Nature Programs, Children’s Programs, Worship Music, Meals, Snacks, Fellowship, Campfires, and Nature Hikes.


Friday night check-in is at 6:00 pm. The program starts at 7:00 pm. Conference concludes at 1:00 pm Sunday.
