Welcome to the Bongiorno Christian Retreat Center. We are located in beautiful Central Pennsylvania just six miles outside of Carlisle Pennsylvania. Our mission is to provide a welcoming venue for our guests to hold a life changing conference, retreat or camp. When you arrive on our campus, you’ll agree, this cathedral of the outdoors is a special place; this is where God transforms lives.
