Perfect for family reunions, business picnics, church services/fellowship meals, and birthday parties. These pavilions are available for rental from April through October. Our pavilions have a kitchen and have three open sides.  Beautifully nestled in the trees, there is a playground, ball field for group activities, gaga court, and volleyball court conveniently located nearby. In case of wind or inclement weather, the pavilions have sides that can be lowered. The swimming pool and waterslide are available for an additional fee (click here for prices). There is a limited number of Day Pool Passes available for our pavilion guests. Group leaders can reserve pool passes when making or confirming their reservation. Group leaders will receive instructions on the use of pool and payment. The waterslide will be available for pavilion users during general slide times for a nominal fee. Pavilion users can also reserve the waterslide or the pool for a private party outside of normal operating hours. Group leaders should call the camp office for pool arrangements and details. All reservations adding Pool or Waterslide must be made at least two weeks prior to your scheduled event. Because of the limited number of pavilion passes available, we advise reserving early.
