Retreat & Conference Center

As a camp and conference ministry of First Presbyterian Church, our goal is to provide groups with the opportunity to relax and experience the awesome beauty of God’s creation. Surrounded by 127 acres of hardwood forest and overlooking beautiful Lake Chickamauga, our retreat and conference center offer a large dining room with a fireplace, an oversized meeting room, and rustic cabins with bunk beds. (Linens and towels are not provided.) We can accommodate overnight groups ranging in size from 30 to 160, and day groups up to 200, depending on the time of year.
