A great retreat experience! The Center looked great and the food was excellent! Thank you for having everything prepared for us and for your time and attention.

Larissa Nicholson

We had a Woman's Retreat this weekend and it was amazing! Our whole group had so much fun and I'll definitely be at the next one.

John and Gayle Stahlman

Our ministry has been renting the Center for a summer camp for almost 20 years. We have enjoyed working with Colleen and the other staff. They are most accommodating and permit us to run our camp as we always have. 

Bill Kramer

We hold our annual Men's Retreat at the Center. We are always taken care of, our set-up is always easy, the food is great, and the cost is very reasonable. The camp has truly been a blessing to me and the group I represent.
