Time Apart to Reconnect and Renew

Surrounded by giant fir and cedar, lush fern and abundant moss covered vine maple, the Alton L. Collins Conference & Retreat Center near Eagle Creek, Oregon provides an environment and facilities conducive to study and reflection, relaxation and recreation.  

Alton L. Collins Retreat Center is a special place for adults. Magnificent western red cedars grace the grounds. The natural forest setting has been preserved. Trails take you through the woods and along the streams that meander around the grounds. In the summer, our organic garden helps supply fresh vegetables for delicious meals.
