What is included

We invite you to take time away from the chaos and busyness of life and invest in your marriage by joining us on Valentine’s Day Weekend for the annual 3rd Strand Marriage Retreat. You will enjoy a 2-night stay in the beautiful Hyatt Lodge Resort hotel in Oak Brook, Illinois with buffet breakfast on Saturday and Sunday, as well as unlimited coffee, tea and soft drinks throughout the weekend. We do not promise you will be perfect and have a perfect spouse, but you will leave with a stronger, healthier marriage. We invite couples in all stages of life, from newlyweds to empty-nesters and everything in between to attend this powerful weekend. This investment has great return!

Kirk Cameron

Kirk Cameron is best known for his memorable role of “Mike Seaver,” a cultural icon in the 80’s, with his mullet hairstyle, cool sunglasses, and wisecracking comebacks. In 2008, he enjoyed much success with the #1 grossing inspirational film of the year, “Fireproof,” and his record-breaking, one night only live event, “Monumental.” His production company CAMFAM Studios has partnered with SONY/Provident Films to release three projects: “Unstoppable,” “Mercy Rule,” and “Saving Christmas." His speaking tour “Love Worth Fighting For” is a faith-based marriage event held in churches across the country and has been hosted in over 175 cities. Kirk, his wife Chelsea, and their six children host an all-expenses paid summer camp for terminally ill children and their families called Camp Firefly.
