At Refugio Solté we host retreats that are specific times in which we invest in current and emerging kingdom leaders of churches, ministries, and missions organizations both nationally in Costa Rica and world wide. Each retreat is uniquely designed around the particular needs of the groups that come, but all include intentional time spent studying God’s word (through teachings our staff puts together, book studies, or specific curriculums brought by some of the organizations we host), times of physical and spiritual rest and renewal, and corporate prayer and worship. Depending on the desires of the groups, we even offer times of adventures in nature, whether that is visiting local beaches and waterfalls, or hiking around our own Refugio Solté jungles and rivers, often hiking up to a gorgeous ocean view lookout. There are three ways to be involved with Refugio Solté retreats:

Enabling Participation
A tremendous amount of work goes into enabling each retreat, and one way that many come to participate in a retreat is by dedicating their time and efforts to help our staff with prepping, cooking and serving meals, cleaning the rooms and buildings and being available to meet any needs that might arise with our retreats guests. While a lot of hands-on work takes place, we also ensure that the enabling team has ample opportunity to invest time and relationship into thosewhom attend the retreats, often even participating in the teachings and worship times, whenever needed or possible. Our heart for working with enabling teams is that we can all serve the Lord and our brothers and sisters with intentionality and the lavish love of Christ. Check our calendar to see if there are any retreats that you would like to be a part of enabling and if there are any spots available.

Refugio Solté partners with a number of churches and organizations throughout the year that have created retreat events that focus on equipping targeted groups of people with specific curriculums or programs. To give you an idea, we host people anywhere from pastors of rural churches, US college groups, teenagers from some of the roughest slums, to modern hipsterific church leaders of big cities and athletic programs.  If the Lord is prompting you to partner with Refugio Solté in designing a specific retreat, please look at our calendar for possible openings and contact us. We would love to dream and plan with you.

Attending a retreat
Do you need a time of rest, renewal or training? We would love to receive you with open arms and hearts. We would love to serve you, invest in your life and draw near to the Lord and worship him with you. There is no “type” of person we look to host. We all have places of brokenness and places of thriving in our lives, and it is a privilege to walk the journey together, encouraging one another daily in God’s truth.  If the Lord is leading you to a time of retreat, please check out our calendar for events and available spaces.
