Worship & Renewal

Our spirit-filled spaces and experienced leaders help the process Along. We offer a variety of experiences that will help you to encounter God in meaningful ways. Walk the labyrinth and feel the peace and tranquility to be found in the journey.

Travel takes you to new places

New experiences in new places making new friends are what camps are all about... and we have leaders who are ready and able to take you on even greater adventures. Taking the retreat experience on the road to help people encounter God in the world.... that's what Trip & Travel is all about.

Putting together the pieces...

Whether it is sewing a quilted table runner or crocheting a prayer shawl, creativity and craft hobbies are good for you according to a recent study by the University of Glasgow. But you already knew that... Letting your fingers and mind work together to create a work of art is also a way to glorify and celebrate God's loving presence in our lives.

Families renew in the outdoors...

Let someone else prepare delicious meals while you spend time doing fun activities with your family and new friends. Camps provide families a safe space to be together outdoors... spending time with each other and exploring nature. Families come in all shapes and sizes ... from grandparents to young children... there is a place for all in God’s world. (S’mores for everyone too!)

Camp Hope

Camp Hope is a camp for developmentally disabled young adults age 16 and up. Campers are cared for in a loving community of volunteers who work with the disabled. Contact the registrar in the camping office for registration process.

Serving where God leads

This may even be at camp! Whether it is painting or planting a tree to prepare the camps for a busy summer or volunteering to be a family friend for a Creation Vacation family, our camps provide opportunities for volunteers to share their gifts. For hundreds of years, Christians have known that a simple act of service
such as washing dishes can bring you closer to God. Come to a camp and find God while you make life better for others.

Bring Your Congregation, School, or Organization!

Whether it is to strengthen the bonds of family life or finding space for a leadership revitalization event,
you will find that retreat centers are sacred spaces set apart that allow people’s hearts and minds to be
touched deeply in their encounters with God. Our staff excels in training leaders ... it’s what we do... so let
us help your church revitalize its ministry.
