Testimonials

Our time at Wolf River Refuge was truly restful & renewing. We learned skills on how to adapt better & parent better in our blended family. Steve & Kris Tice did an excellent job making the information applicable, helpful & informative. If you’re apart of a blended family, this retreat is a must! We were more united as parents and had time to think away from our kids. Wolf River Refuge is quiet & peaceful while the cabins are very cozy & equipped with everything we needed. The food was excellent & it was nice to share a meal with other couples in similar situations as ours. We will certainly attend this retreat again.

The staff and service was great! Steve Tice went above and beyond to facilitate great family time.
We were able to have quiet, restful family time, unplug from the world and play as a family without distractions. We were able to do some fishing in the Wolf River and and go horseback riding at Silver Birch Ranch. We sat and read the bible together as a family in a place where we could see God outside, and spent more time talking about the bible too! I spoke to my children and they ranked it one of the best family times we’ve had in a long time. No one wanted to leave!

Last summer, Silver Birch Ranch warmly welcomed us to stay in the Dove, one of the lovely log cabins at the Wolf River Refuge. We deeply appreciated the peaceful, relaxed, secluded atmosphere in the midst of a busy traveling schedule. As missionaries on home assignment, we spent the summer visiting ministry partners and churches in the Midwest and along the East coast, sharing about the challenges and joys of helping facilitate Bible translation in eastern Africa. The Refuge gave us a much-needed opportunity to catch our breath in the midst of all the traveling and to enjoy some quality family time. It was the one time all summer when our family could be together in one place. All seven of us fit comfortably in the cabin and treasured being together as a family, sharing meals, playing games, sitting around the fire, and walking in the Nicolet forest.
