Pool: Our Junior Olympic size pool is a great place to cool off and have some fun. The pool can be rented for a separate fee.

Vesper Dell: Right on the waterfront, the Vesper Dell is a beautiful spot for worship and contemplation.

Sports Fields/ Activities: Whether it is softball, soccer, volleyball, or even tetherball and four square, we have the perfect space for your group! Check out the Corn Hole Games, our Carpetball table, and ask about our famous GaGa Pit! We can even arrange a session at our archery range for your group with advance notice.

Waterfront: If you like to kayak or canoe, we have the perfect spot on Bogue Sound. We are just around the bend from Gale’s Creek, a great place to paddle and explore. We occasionally see dolphins and there are lots of crabs, shorebirds, and other wildlife to see. The 572-foot pier is a great place to fish, have a small meeting or just relax. We can supply kayaks, canoes, paddles, and even lifejackets. Just be sure and bring your water shoes – those oyster shells can be sharp!

Pavilion: Our large pavilion is a great place for your picnic or other gatherings. Several churches in the area use it to have a worship service followed by a family picnic. The pavilion has water and electricity and a spectacular view of Bogue Sound!

Fire Circle: What would camp be without a place for a Campfire? The campfire circle has comfortable seating and is a great place for worship, singing, telling ghost stories, and of course –S’MORES! We can provide the roasting forks, you provide the marshmallows and fun!
