The Yearly Meeting has three beautiful properties that are available for rent by Monthly Meetings, families, other groups and individuals during the fall and spring. These properties are suited for retreats, workshops, outdoor education, and gatherings of Friends and family. We have even had weddings and reunions on the properties.

All the camps are closed from October 31st to April 1st.

About the Camps

Our facilities are very primitive. The Camper shelters are screened but open to the natural world as well as the elements.  There are no outdoor lights or electricity in and around these cabins to mar the areas natural beauty.  The staff cabins are enclosed but not heated or insulated.  They have no plumbing and have minimal electrical service.  The grounds are not lighted and flashlights are essential for getting around at night. You must provide your own bedding, including mattresses.

The kitchens are well equipped and have most of the utensils and appliances that one would expect.  Stoves, refrigerators, pots, pans, bowls, utensils and table settings are available for you to use but may need to be rinsed off first.

We ask that you please replace any items that you use. You will do your own cooking and need to bring food and paper goods. Warm bedding or sleeping bags, camp mattresses, flashlights and bug spray are important parts of a pleasant visit.  Other items that you may want to consider include: Rain Poncho, Toiletries, Towels, Change of Clothes, Comfortable Shoes, Shower Shoes, Warm Sweater or Jacket, First Aid Kit, and Sunscreen.
