Personal Retreat


Church leaders who desire a quiet, comfortable setting for either personal, spiritual, and/or study retreats may wish to consider the Climenhaga Homestead on the Messiah College campus.  Located on the edge of campus near the picturesque Yellow Breeches Creek, the Climenhaga Homestead offers four lovely guest suites, each with private bath and sun room.


Messiah College’s 400 hundred acre campus offers abundant recreational space including hiking and fitness trails, and trout stream.  Guests may also wish to take advantage of the 300,000 volume Murray Library, arts and culture events, chapel services, or athletic events.


Guest rooms are available at a discount rate for church leaders via the Office of Volunteer & Church Relations.  Contact Randy Ness, director of volunteer & church relations, at 717.796.4789 or e-mail for more information.
