Child Care for Retreat Groups

Infants, toddlers, and pre-schoolers:

Montreat Conference Center can support retreat groups by offering weekend child care for children 6 months to 5 years. All child care provided is in accord with our Juvenile Protection Policy, which requires at least two unrelated caregivers at all times. All child care is provided in a Montreat Conference Center meeting space; we do not provide care in other institutions’ spaces or in private rooms.

Inquire about care by emailing Our child care coordinator will want to know:

  • Number of children
  • Ages of children
  • Any allergies or special needs
  • Schedule of child care requested
  • Which physical location in Montreat you have reserved for child care

Your group will be billed for child care based on the number of hours and caregivers required, with a minimum charge of $500. Our child care coordinator will be able to provide you with an estimate of total cost.

Elementary-age and above:

Churches or retreat groups interested in engaging programming for elementary aged children are encouraged to contact our friends at Camp Grier, who can provide activities for these children in Montreat or at their facility in nearby Old Fort. These arrangements are made between the retreat group and Camp Grier directly. Billing is handled separately between the retreat group and Camp Grier.

Montreat Wilderness School, available for 3rd grade and up:

Montreat Conference Center also offers Wilderness School programming for children in 3rd grade and up. This programming is billed to the retreat group and can be arranged by contacting our wilderness Coordinator, Jason Nanz, directly at Like our child care offerings, the Wilderness School operates in accord with our Juvenile Protection Policy.
