All fourteen rooms as well as three cabins are reserved for our 24th annual retreat. There will be 43 attendees this year! Of that number, 15 are children. Should you be interested, please contact the church office; we will check on remaining availability.
The family retreat is a quiet weekend where we are treated to one of the most beautiful settings God has provided us. We share meals in a dining hall at pre-scheduled times. There is a Sunday morning worship service and a Sunday sunset Communion service both held on the grounds. The focus of the weekend is fellowship--with family and with other attendees. Activities are your own personal choice! Each attendee plans their own activities while at Zephyr but typically in the past, we sing hymns and songs Sunday evening and play games, work puzzles, or just visit in our conference room. Many attendees spend their day just relaxing onsite or hiking, shopping, horseback riding, sight-seeing, etc. There is a small sandy beach on the property for our use. Should anyone want to plan an activity to invite attendees to attend, they are welcome to do so however, nothing is mandatory (except for meal plan whether attend meal or not).

For TAHOE CENTER rooms, Zephyr Point assigns us a block of rooms–we cannot specify a specific room or block of rooms. Please be aware that not all rooms have a view. Rooms are assigned in order of when room fees have been paid by checks written to RPF–please, it is important to note on check memo: "Zephyr Retreat"). Meal fees can be paid at the same time as room fees but do not need to be paid until two weeks prior to the retreat.
