Ashmere Lake - go ahead, jump in to the Retreat this year!
On the shores of Ashmere Lake near the WELS Labor Day Retreat's historic Hinsdale location, our Retreat is now located at Camp Danbee.

We are happy to invite you to a lovely location with extensive lush grounds - plenty of cabins, great facilities and an authentic camp atmosphere. The main lodge has timbers and rafters spanning the dining room. With an abundance of cabins and indoor meeting areas, there will be space comfortable for every presentation, kids' program, and Bible study opportunity. Scroll down to see an overview of the camp facilities.

There are 4 basketball courts, 11 all-weather tennis courts, state-of-the-art dance studios, beautiful softball and soccer fields, a pristine heated pool and even a little stream winding through the camp. Quietly surrounded by wildlife refuges in the Berkshires, Camp Danbee boasts a 217-acre spring-fed, warmwater lake with an average depth of eight feet.
