Wheaton in the Northwoods (WIN)

Each summer, HoneyRock offers a variety of courses that meet Christ at the Core and General Education requirements of Wheaton College. These courses, which are open to any student, are taught in a modular and intensive format. The sessions include concentrated coursework taught by professors at HoneyRock and include pre-class and post-class work. Courses at HoneyRock are unique: professors will use the outdoors, the communal dynamic, and other activities to enhance learning.

Cost Per Credit: $625/credit - most courses are 2 or 4 credits
Room and Board: $150/week
Transportation: $50/way (optional!)

To register for these courses please fill out the online sign up form and bring with your $50 non-refundable deposit to the HoneyRock office in Schell Hall 102 to reserve a spot. We will then guide you through the registration process with the Registrar.

During your free time and in the evenings there will be activity areas open for your use: swimming, canoeing, kayaking, waterskiing, climbing, mountain biking, archery, and more! You can also choose to take part in planned large group events.

Housing will be in our River Cabins. You will have a bunk and will share your living space with 8-10 people. These buildings have modern bathrooms in each room. 


Chef Thomas and his team prepare three meals a day for the HoneyRock community. We offer a wide variety of foods and can accommodate special diets when advanced notice is given. 

You can drive your personal car, carpool with friends, or ride a coach bus! We provide transportation to and from Wheaton for $50 each way. Sign up at the HoneyRock office in Schell Hall 102. Schell Hall is on the way to Edman Chapel from Anderson Commons on the right.
