What Does R&R Mean To You?

Rest & Relaxation? Maybe Reflection & Renewal. Or Re-energize & Reinvigorate.

Summer R&R at White Sulphur Springs is a vacation like no other…a vacation with a purpose. Everyone that comes to the Springs has a different expectation or need for their time here on R&R. Your time here is flexible and you can tailor your experience to make Summer R&R just what you want and need it to be. Whether you want R&R to mean resting or rafting or rock climbing or reading or riding horses or reconnecting with family or rekindling romance with your spouse, you can do it all during your week of Summer R&R at WSS.

Summer 2019 is not open for registration yet. This page is under construction. Please forgive us the dust and mess…

A Typical Day

Each day of Summer R&R is unique and filled with many activities that are not only fun, but also designed to bring you closer to God.

Check-in begins on the Friday of each session at 1600 followed by an opening dinner at 1800. The week concludes on the following Friday with breakfast and check-out at 1000. The R&R session is designed to be a week-long experience with teaching sessions building on themselves. Stays shorter than a week are possible to accommodate your family’s schedule. Please select the individual days during your registration process. 

The Summer R&R program is flexible and allows you to do as much or as little as you want.  You can take advantage of everything that is offered…or nothing and just enjoy the beauty of this place, quiet time with the Lord or reconnecting time with your spouse and kids.  Our speakers provide biblically centered teaching with discussion, and we build in times for worship and fellowship with other believers. We also schedule activities in the afternoons that create opportunities for fun with family and others.  There is enough variety in the activities available at WSS and the surrounding area that you can have an amazing vacation experience here—whether you are looking just to rest and relax or you want to be adventurous and get re-invigorated and re-energized.  If you’ve got kids, they’re going to love it here!  The kids programming is dynamic and engaging and we find that kids of all ages truly enjoy the freedom the experience here of a safe place to run and explore and meet new friends.  Below is a brief outline of how we structure a day of R&R so you can see how you would spend a week here with us.

0730: Morning devotional time (optional)

0830: A delicious, home-cooked breakfast

0955: Teen and children’s programs until 1215

1000: Adult individual or couple’s quiet time

1100: Morning group discussion time (Note: on Monday’s we have a scavenger hunt in lieu of the morning discussion time)

1230: Enjoy a great lunch and salad bar

* 1330: Afternoons are either free time, family time, or a planned activity.  Example activities include: hiking, swimming, horseback riding, the climbing wall and zip-line, sports and games

1730: Come together for a delicious dinner (Note: some evenings we have fun with a theme such as international and western night)

1930: Evening session with guest speaker, plus teen and children’s programs

2030: Evening snacks, fellowship and fun

WSS Referral Program

We want to thank all of you out there that make the effort to share about how special WSS is. There is no better advertising or marketing that we can do, than for YOU to share about how the Lord has used WSS to bless you and your family. So, every time you share WSS with someone that hasn’t been here before, you can reap a reward. When they book a stay with us, simply have them let us know that you referred them and you will earn the same 10% discount we give first-time guests!

“Love the welcoming family atmosphere and Bible teaching! Great for kids to have good role models of older young adults who are serving God and interested in them.”
