The Wild, Wonderful Love Relationship Retreat is open to adult couples of all ages, at any stage of a committed relationship, whether they are dating, engaged, or married. A committed relationship simply means a relationship where both partners are dedicated to each other. The information we share and the topics we will cover during this retreat have been designed to be relevant to all committed couples who want to build and maintain a happy, fulfilling, stable, and strong relationship. We believe everyone should feel safe and welcome to access relationship support, and we invite couples of all backgrounds and orientations to attend.
It's quick and easy to register as a couple through our online ticketing platform. Couples admission is valid for the full weekend for one, all-inclusive price.

Yes! We are extending special pricing to all military couples. Active Duty, Reserve, Guard, and Veterans can purchase couples tickets (2 ticket package) at a discount. To claim the offer, enter code: MILITARY on our ticketing page.
Military status will be verified when you check in at the venue.

This special pricing for service members is offered as a courtesy and cannot be combined with any other offers. Offer cannot be applied retroactively.

Checking in to the Wild, Wonderful Love Relationship Retreat is easy! We will have your names on hand. When you arrive, you will be welcomed in and invited to choose your own seat. Each table will be shared between 2-3 couples. We recommend arriving at least 15-30 minutes early each day to check in, grab something to drink, and settle in before we get started.
The retreat will be broken down into learning modules that include a mix of education, individual reflection, couples discussion and/or activities. View our full schedule to see all the topics we will cover and more details about the retreat!
This event will be held indoors. We would advise you to dress so you are comfortable indoors, and bring layers if you plan to spend time outside. We will take an extended break on Saturday at lunchtime, and Bluemont Hotel is within walking distance of several restaurants, shops, and parks that you might enjoy visiting during lunch.
This retreat is appropriate for couples who may be feeling different levels of connection or disconnection with one another. You may feel that your relationship is good (or "good enough"). But it is common for couples to have some issues or go through periods of difficulty. This retreat may help. The goal of this retreat is to develop and strengthen the skills and strategies needed to build and maintain a healthy relationship. This retreat can help couples understand themselves, their partner, and their relationship in a new way. You can expect to learn practical skills that can help you and your relationship grow.
Please note that couples retreats are not a substitute for therapy. This retreat is best suited for couples who are not currently in crisis. What constitutes a crisis can vary, but it may include couples that have had a recent disclosure of infidelity, are contemplating divorce, or have experienced abuse or intense arguments. If you or your partner think your relationship is in crisis, it may be more appropriate to start by seeing a couple's counselor. Contact Andrews & Associates Counseling for more information about couples/marriage therapy or to request a session.
We understand that things can come up. Sorry to hear you can't make it!
