Because we understand that your retreat experience is more than lodging, food, and meeting space, we offer a wide range of camp activities that can help make your retreat exciting and memorable. Many camp activities are free and available year round, while others require an additional charge or are season-dependant.
*Camp staff led activities available with an additional charge of $40/hr. Please indicate preference at time of reservation.
