This location provides the perfect opportunity for people to “unplug,” enjoy nature, have fun, and kindle a sense of compassion and spirituality. We provide an outdoor setting to spend quality time with members of your church group or ministry. We offer plenty of space and resources to promote a faith-centered atmosphere. The camp is also the ideal place to host your wedding, business meeting, or other special event in a peaceful, secluded setting. Our facilities include the Overlook Lodge, the Old Hearth Lodge, the Cottage in the Woods, ten simple cabins, a swimming pool, a combination basketball/tennis court, a sand volleyball court, an athletic field, a gazebo, three shelter houses, a primitive outdoor amphitheater with a large fire pit, and a wooded vesper trail.
Primitive cabins are situated in two groups of 5 cabins each. Each cabin can accommodate up to 10 campers. The cabins are air conditioned and heated for adverse weather. Cabins are very basic, representing the traditional form of simple cabin used in church camps for decades. All of the cabins were renovated in Spring 2021 and have heating and cooling.
