Meadowkirk offers a variety of activities to enhance your retreat, meeting or event. We encourage guests to incorporate some activity or free time into their programs to give participants the opportunity to savor the fresh air and abundant beauty of our site.  Many groups enjoy having some unstructured time to explore our meadows and woods, 

read a book under a shade tree, take photos of nature, paint, or just relax. We invite you to take a closer look at our activities by clicking on the links below. Contact our guest services team to learn more and arrange/reserve your selections today.
