Our Christian retreat center in South Carolina embodies a love of God--and a love of fun.

Retreats and Camps


Nature is a gift meant to be cherished. To that end, we invite you and your group to “unplug” and reconnect with the Lord. Our expansive retreat facility includes bunk-bed lodging and plenty of facilities to enjoy the outdoors to the fullest. We also provide meals throughout your stay.


At the center of faith is a community. Our camp serves churches, ministries, and Christian organizations of all denominations. Thanks to our location and welcoming atmosphere, our place can host:


Children’s Camps

Youth Group Camps

Singles Retreats

Men’s and Women’s Retreats

Christian School Retreats


Exciting Programs Available Throughout the Year


Spending time outdoors is a great time to feel connected to Nature and with Christ--and it is also a perfect opportunity to spend time with others, discover your capabilities, and forge lasting friendships. Throughout the year, our facilities host programmed camps for adults and children. Simply tell us how many people are attending, and we’ll handle everything for you!


Our seasonal packages include food and lodging, as well as a robust array of games, sports, and faith-building activities. Faith speakers also visit to spur a passion for Christ and His teachings. Through the camping program, participants will learn more about God--and how His presence can change lives. 

Christian spring, summer, and winter retreats are available, with several sessions available for every season. Here is a brief overview of two of our most popular Christian youth retreats:
