The Wilderness Camp area offers lodging ideal for youth and young adult groups, also a favorite among family groups. Beautiful nature surrounds you here, with a small spring-fed pond, a nearby mountain stream, and ball field with awesome views of the night sky.
Outdoor recreation at our Wilderness Camp includes a basketball/volleyball court, swings and a gaga (dodge ball) court. The ball field is nearby, great for large group games such as soccer or ultimate frisbee.
Lodging is sturdy with a casual appeal. Linens, pillows and towels are not provided in any of the Wilderness Camp facilities. This area is easily accessible from the Retreat Center via the one-mile Wilderness Road or by a pleasant 1/2-mile walk along the Ruffed Grouse Trail.
This area is used by our Wilderness Summer Camp program from early June to mid-August, as well as Ignite Youth Retreats on select dates in February and March. It is available for group retreats during the rest of the year.

The Pavilion at Wilderness Camp is a great group-gathering facility with casual, rugged flexibility and appeal. This four season structure offers the warmth and coziness of a wood-stove in the cooler months as well as the flexibility of an open air environment during the heat of the summer. The meeting area can be arranged for eating at picnic tables or for games and activities. The large adjoining commercial kitchen is ideal for preparing group meals for up to 100 people. Guests lodging in the Barn or Hillside/Brookside cabins often reserve the Pavilion for meeting and dining space.
