Our Mission

nwcc2The Northwoods Conference Center is owned and operated by the Institute in Basic Life Principles (IBLP).

In addition to it’s own ministry functions, IBLP uses the facility to encourage others in the ways of God. We welcome interested organizations, churches, and family groups ranging in size from 2-200 people to consider allowing us to help coordinate a spiritually challenging and enriching retreat or conference.

If you are looking for a place conducive to spiritual renewal, come experience the friendly, refreshing atmosphere of the Northwoods Conference Center. Our location on 2,500 acres in the Ottawa National Forest guarantees quiet, relaxing seclusion during your stay. The lodge provides hotel-style accommodations for up to 200 guests in a beautiful setting overlooking Wolf Lake. Three cabins are also available for use year round.
