Our family camps are designed to provide rest, recreation, and spiritual growth. A family vacation that is fun and affordable, with a little something for everyone. Keep busy or just take the time to relax. Families will enjoy a variety of activities, Christian community, biblical teaching and dedicated time with one another.
At Family Camp, you have the option of choosing to stay in our air conditioned Sylvan View Retreat Center or bring your tent or RV to our Campground. During Family Camp I you can also stay in our rustic and affordable Breezewood Cabins. We take care of all the cooking and cleaning. Use of camp facilities, daily games/activities, daily worship and Bible study, child care, and special activities are all included. Read more about each lodging option below.
Sylvan View Retreat Center is the hub for our family camps: meals, activities, meeting times and even lodging. Sylvan View Retreat Center has 35 private hotel-style rooms. There is plenty of space to enjoy conversation around the fire or enjoy the fresh mountain air on our elevated deck.
Nestled alongside Mountainview Lake, our Campground boasts 38 sites all within a short walk of the bathhouse. Camp Hebron has primitive & electric hookup tent sites, as well as sites for your trailer or RV.
