The Beauty of the Northwoods

Before looking at anything else, here’s what you need to see–the beautiful Northwoods, backdrop to HoneyRock. From hundreds of wooded acres to 4,000 ft of lakefront access to green fields, HoneyRock offers plenty of space to enjoy the outdoors.

The Chrouser Dining Hall overlooks the expansive Chrouser Lawn which gives way to Long Lake. Wooden decks for group gatherings border a grassy playing field for games of frisbee and bags. 

HoneyRock Classrooms


Yes, learning happens inside of traditional classrooms and meeting spaces. From smart screens to old school whiteboards, our classrooms serve student groups year-round. We believe that impactful learning also occurs outdoors, in our work, and in our dorms. All of HoneyRock is your classroom.
