Retreat For Rest
Hidden Springs is more than a place to stay in this area of Central Alberta. Those who would like to come to Hidden Springs for retreat purposes are encouraged to consider what personal questions they are struggling with.
Some will come with a clear idea of what inner work needs to be addressed. Others may find one of our retreat outlines helpful. Intentional times of solitude or reflection often include such activities as prayer, Bible reading, silence, writing, personal worship, walks, recreation and reading from the devotional masters and other literature. These activities stem from the scriptural promises that Christians have held to over the ages: the belief that God is neither aloof nor silent. He may be heard. It is not unlike what we find over at the barn; 'The sheep follow the shepherd because they know His voice'. (John 10:4) In fact, practical lessons for living pour out of the careful observation of creation and the endless interplay of her many elements.
Waterfront Description & Nearby Activities
Guests are welcome to use the trails for walking in spring, summer and autumn, and to explore while cross-country skiing on groomed track in the winter. (A fair selection of cross-country skis and boots are available if you are without.)
A canoe, paddles & life jackets are available for use on the farm ponds or at Twin Lakes during the summer. Swimming in the yard-pond is refreshing on a hot day, or after a hot sauna!
Park benches dot the grounds. At sundown, cozy up to the heat and crackling sounds of a fire around the fire-pit.
You can drive or hike to nearby Twin Lakes. It's only 3 km away, and affords a unique experience in a balsam fir microclimate. Twin Lakes, maintained by the County of Wetaskiwin, is a favorite spot for scuba divers. The campground maintains 60 campsites from May to September.
Other nearby attractions and activities include antiquing, biking, canoeing, diving, fishing, golf, hiking, hunting, museums, and unique shopping.
