Manitoba retreats are made up of a mindset of activities and rest, silence, and expression, solitude, and community.  Here we explore Manitoba retreats, their healing touch and how to plan your time away to make it extra special.

Do you need to be a certain size?

People think about large groups when thinking about retreats and conferences.  There are a lot of smaller groups in the 15 to 25 person range that also have found the secret of retreat centers.  Where the larger venues consider these small groups an annoyance, there are Mom and Pop retreat centers like Wilderness Edge that are completely geared towards hosting groups from 10 to 300 persons.


Wilderness Edge is located only 60 minutes east of Winnipeg.  Whiteshell Provincial Park surrounds us. With waterfront and an entire provincial park to access, it is an ideal setting for any retreat.

We look forward to hosting your Manitoba retreat at Wilderness Edge!
