The Wilderness Camp area offers lodging ideal for youth and young adult groups. It is also a favorite among family groups. Beautiful nature surrounds you here, with a pretty 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.

Huckleberry Chalet sits along the wood’s edge overlooking much of the Wilderness Camp area. It offers a full kitchen and dining space for creating your own meals or snacks.

This Chalet has air conditioning. Linens, pillows and towels are not provided. The five bedrooms sleep a maximum of 26.

Hillside and Brookside are two cabins nestled in the woods at the Wilderness Camp area. Rugged and basic, yet comfortable, each sleeps up to 12 people, with six bunks apiece, for a total 24 possible with both. Brookside and Hillside offer a front porch, a picnic table, and heat for winter lodging. Linens, towels, blankets and pillows are not provided. Bathhouse facilities are available in the Barn (if your group has that reserved) or in the Woodside bathhouse nearby.
This large bathhouse offers plenty of shower and lavatory space. There is informal meeting and lounge space downstairs, and a small restroom. Typically, guests lodging in Hillside and Brookside Cabins will have access to this facility.
The Pavilion at Wilderness Camp is a great group-gathering facility with casual flexibility and rustic appeal. This four-season structure is well heated for the fall and winter months, with the flexibility of an open air environment during 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.
