In the center of CBD is the lake. To the north of the lake is the Retreat Center, which consists of the Main Lodge, Hemlock Lodge, the Ouch House, and the 10 surrounding, winterized summer camp cabins. From early April through early November this area is used for Outdoor School or Summer Camp. This area is available year-round to rental groups except during the summer camp season: June, July and early August.
The Main Lodge accommodates up to 150 people for meals and meetings. Upstairs there's a large meeting room and the dining hall with a large stone fireplace. The dining hall and meeting room can be used as one large room or three separate, curtained areas. WiFi is available and a phone is provided for guests' needs. Downstairs there are six bedrooms with a total of 24 beds, and ample restroom and shower facilities. The Lodge Kitchen is a state inspected facility (like a restaurant kitchen) and can only be operated by trained staff. Groups using the Main Lodge will receive meals prepared by camp's cooks.
Larger groups can use the modern, winterized cabins (which sleep up to 100), that circle the back of the Lodge. Nearby Hemlock (16 beds) and Ouch House (6 beds) cabins are available as extra sleeping and meeting space for Main Lodge groups. To learn more about Hemlock and Ouch House visit the cabin webpage.
Groups of 25 or less, that prefer to prepare their own meals may rent the Lakeside and Rising Sun Cabins. (There is no facility at CBD for groups of more than 25 that want to cook their own meals.)
Rental groups using the Main Lodge, Hemlock, and the surrounding cabins have access to the ballcourt, gaga pit and disc golf at no fee. Swimming, canoeing, tower & zip-line, giant swing and the initiatives course are available for a fee. Camp is inside a state forest, which provides hiking, mountain biking and hunting opportunities. Hunting is not allowed on camp property.
Fees are between $28 - $30/night/person for lodging (depending on size of group) plus meals. Children ages 5 - 12 are 1/2 price. Discount rates for member churches. Call or contact CBD for availability and exact costs.
