Windhorse Retreat Center /

Bright Dawn Home Spread
Plymouth, WI

Host: Jennifer Warnick

FHC Wisconsin enters its fifth year in 2016, returning for a second year to the tranquil forests and abundant fields of Windhorse and Bright Dawn Retreat Centers. This venue is snug up against the Northern Kettle Moraine State Forest, just one hour north of Milwaukee.





FHC Wisconsin returns for the second year to Windhorse and Bright Dawn Retreat Centers, two adjacent venues located near Plymouth, WI. This peaceful spot is surrounded by forests and fields and features a variety of lodging options. 

We are delighted to be partnering with the organizations operating these venues to help make improvements to the infrastructure to support our providing a comfortable and usable camp environment. If you are interested in helping out with a camp work day, please contact us.

To learn more about Windhorse Retreat Center and Bright Dawn Home Spread, please visit their websites, linked on the Wisconsin Resources menu.

The Perlman Retreat Center is situated in a tranquil forest on 350 acres. This serene retreat is surrounded by another 600 acres of woodlands and open prairies, including a living bog and Kettle Moraines. You would never guess you are only 30 minutes from Milwaukee and just 2 hours from Chicago!

Families will lodge in their own spacious dormitory-style room, each with its own attached bath. Food will be provided by Perlman Center's own chef, who will serve us delicious, nourishing meals in the private dining room.

Though Perlman Retreat Center is home to Nature's Classroom Institute, the renowned environmental education program, we will have this peaceful oasis to ourselves for the week. There are indoor and outdoor program spaces, several fire rings and abundant outdoor recreation opportunities. Enjoy hiking on the retreat center's trails, hanging out at the pool or challenge yourself with the climbing walls or ropes course.

You can learn more about the Perlman Retreat Center by visiting the website listed in the Wisconsin Resources menu.
