Retreat Centre

FireplaceSonshine Cove offers a perfect year-round location for Retreats, Weddings, Family Reunions and other events. (See below for a photo gallery of our facilities.)

The camp is located on the shores of beautiful Lac Corbeau, Quebec, 100 km north of Orleans, Ontario, and is wheelchair accessible.

In the summer Sonshine Cove can accommodate up to 80 people overnight, with a day time capacity of up to 100+. In the winter Sonshine Cove can accommodate up to 75 people comfortably.

The Retreat Centre is equipped with large gathering and dining areas, a large sports field, beautiful lake, and wooded area. As well, the cove is fully winterized, which makes us available all year round.

The facility has a large sports field which can be used for volleyball, baseball, football, badminton, or horseshoes. The gorgeous, sparkling lake is perfect for swimming and diving. Canoes are available for use, as well as motorboats for water skiing or tubing. Hiking and other various land activities are also available.

In the winter, sledding, skating, and snowmobiling are available. You are also welcome to bring your own equipment for cross-country skiing or snowshoeing. The main lounge area has a large ceiling to floor stone fireplace, perfect for indoor group meetings and activities, and to warm up after an activity filled day.


The cost for lodging is $40 per person per 24 hour period. We require a minimum of 20 people in order to open the Retreat Centre for you. For example, the cost for 20 people for 2 days without meals is $1,600 ($40 x 20 people x 2 days).

Cost for meals is an additional $35 per person per 24 hour period. This includes breakfast, lunch, dinner (with dessert), and an evening snack. For example, the cost for 20 people for 2 days with meals is $3,000 (($40 for lodging + $35 for food) x 20 people x 2 days).

We charge $30/day for a day-only visitor: for example, a wedding guest who does not stay overnight.

Please note that HST will be added to the above rates where applicable. Children 16 years & under and special needs individuals are exempt.

A refundable cleaning and security deposit will be added.
