SMALL TOWN MISSIONS HANDBOOK

My kids had an amazing experience here and wished they could go every weekend!

This is a hidden gem, full of treasures that will last for eternity! The staff are very friendly and qualified! The Refuge is an amazing place for all ages and teams!

Our church just completed day 1 of camp at The Refuge and it is awesome! The staff is wonderful, the setting is gorgeous and the kids had a blast. The staff kept them busy, moving and entertained all day. They make the Word come alive and present it in ways that make it fun for the kids and easy to understand. Very well organized and thoughtfully planned!

The Refuge is beautiful in a very peaceful and serene setting. But more than that, the staff there go above and beyond to make your stay comfortable and to make sure you have everything that you need. Great option for any type of meeting, retreat or event!

Great place to visit for church, family, or work-related activities, team building, and most importantly spiritual involvement. The staff there are great people and helpful. I highly recommend!
