Why consider a Ferry Beach Retreat?

  • Ferry Beach is a magical camp and conference center in Saco, ME.
  • Auburn and Norway churches have retreated together with A2U2 at Ferry Beach for years.
  • Ferry Beach has weathered the Covid-19 storm but could use our financial support.
  • Stringent safety restrictions are in place (so registration is limited).
  • Registration is simple — directly to Ferry Beach at 207-282-4489 x1.
  • Count on a wonderful Ferry Beach experience including lodging and meals.

We are reserving the campus, Quillen dorm, and first floor of Underwood for a unique oceanfront weekend we’re still calling a Tri-Church Retreat.  Cabins and Cottages are also available on site for additional cost.  Contact the Ferry Beach Registration staff for those details.

Meal Plan: 4 Meals (3 meals Saturday, plus Sunday Breakfast).

There will be no à la carte meals due to COVID restrictions.

Pre-prepared foods are prohibited in the dining hall.  Pre-packaged foods are permitted.

Lodging and meals for our Tri-Church Ferry Beach Retreat Weekend are available. Speak to Ferry Beach Registration staff for details and pricing.

Additional information:  Our A2U2 Board has approved this weekend getaway for all who can safely participate.  IMAGINE being with our friends again!  DeWolfe Dining Hall will be open Friday evening, but there will be no meal, and no coffee, tea, or snacks in DeWolfe at that time.

Masks and social distancing will continue to be a part of Ferry Beach guidelines.  Ferry Beach will not register over the limits prescribed by the Maine CDC, so registration is first come-first served.  At the time of registration, you will be informed of the latest protocols.

There will be no formal ‘retreat’ programming at the beach, but individuals are welcome to create activities on their own once they get to the beach.

Ferry Beach Retreat & Conference Center will follow the most recent COVID guidelines in Maine.  See:  https://www.maine.gov/covid19/ The guidelines include more openness and less restrictive numbers outside and inside, but at present the campus is limited to 50% capacity indoors.

Scholarships may be available to help with costs.  Contact your Ferry Beach coordinator prior to registration to inquire:
