To retreat is to step outside of our normal lives in order to reflect on where we have been, to catch a glimpse of how we might live differently, and to listen for the still, small voice of God that still whispers throughout the land. Nestled in the Adirondack mountains on 245 wooded acres, and snuggled against Sacandaga Lake, Fowler Camp and Retreat Center is an ideal place to hold your meeting or retreat.
Fowler has 5 different year round facilities for individuals, couples, families, churches, and other organizations. Each is unique and well equipped to make your stay enjoyable and renewing.

Since 2009, Fowler has been offering intentional, spiritual retreats with spiritual directors to guide participants as they practice ancient disciplines and engage in their own inner growth. For those seeking balance or something more in their spiritual lives, Fowler provides a safe, non-judgemental space for our guests.
We invite you to join us, as fellow pilgrims, on any of our retreats.
