"I just wanted to take a minute to say thank you for the great experience.
Sitting in my campsite and enjoying the fire, evening air, the forest and the Owls talking to me was a perfect evening. Everything was first class from first impressions upon my arrival to the clean washrooms and showers (including out houses), shelters and of course the Tipi.
As a bonus at approx. 3 AM a pack of coyotes came through the area. Yapping and carrying on. Needless to say I lay there with one eye open thinking about the fact that the tent does not go all the way to the bottom. They moved on and I fell comfortably to sleep.
All the very best"
"Our clients from Germany and England were very happy with their stay at the Retreat and with Diane's program. Marc, the guide, was impressed with how clean and organized things were and of course with the cultural program with Diane and Dave." Mike Kuhnert, Timberwolf Tours
"Just returned from camp. What a wonderful place you have there - it was awesome. The girls loved it and totally enjoyed the weekend. Rick and Pat were absolutely fabluous hosts - they even lent me a rain jacket for the weekend. Diane's program was so fabulous and the girls enjoyed her so much we invited her for lunch. Thank you for all your help with the planning. And we will be spreading the word about this great place to our other friends in Guiding." Cynthia Roy, Girl Guide leader.
"Thank you sooooo much for your hospitality! My family was very happy to spend a night at the cabin...it was their Christmas present from us so I am happy they enjoyed it. We are already planning another stay with some friends...see you soon." Josh Klassen
"I am very honored to be given a chance to work with the Elk Island Retreat. They show a very warm welcome to all that go there to see and feel the true outdoors. As a Cree First Nations of Canada, I would encourage all my friends and family to go there and feel the warmth of a good tipi experience. With that, my friends, may this year bring many good guests and memories to your retreat. Hiy hiy." Adrian Four Dancing Eagles LaChance
