Everything You Need to Know
CAN CHILDREN USE THEIR CELLPHONES TO CALL HOME WHILE THEY’RE AT CAMP?
While we do allow campers to bring cell phones to camp, we ask that they leave them in their bunks during the day to be fully present for the week!
WHAT ARE THE FACILITIES LIKE?
Our retreat center features two indoor dorms with bunk beds and restrooms. Activities are conducted in our great room, cafeteria, and outdoor spaces. We have a soccer field, basketball court, and volleyball net. While there is a lake on the premises, we do not conduct any water sports involving the lake. The premises feature a full kitchen for our volunteers to prepare breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
