We are inspired by how far we have come in a short time, enjoying the precious current moment, and are always looking to the future. That’s why we’ve decided to break down information for our loyal customers to provide you with the best of what’s happened, what’s happening, and what’s to come. We hope you’ll share along in our thoughtful gaze as we cherish Templed Hills Camp & Retreat Center. Enjoy.
We have officially reached one full year of operations! Our staff would like to extend our appreciation to all of our campers, friends, family and volunteers for everything they have done to make our first year a success.
We have completed various projects to improve our entire campus and better accommodate our guests. Yet, though we have complete a great deal of enhancements, we will continually find ways to further improve our facility and accommodate our guests.
It hasn’t just been cold and windy here, we have snow! Lots of wonderful snow perfect for cozying up around a fire in Heritage Hall, or sledding down the hill next to Skipper Dining Hall. Consider enjoying a weekend getaway to Templed Hills Camp & Retreat while spending the day at a nearby ski resort.
Site Directors Andy Lacefield and Miranda Nousek are working hard to keep the paved roads cleared as they continue the process of organizing the maintenance of buildings and office space. Getting organized is a big focus for us this winter and so far this process has been slow yet successful.
As we continue to focus on organization, next up is the kitchen and Heritage Hall basement. Then, once weather permits, our goal to start painting! We would like to paint the hallway and meeting space in lower Skipper Lodge (stay tuned for photos) and then paint the interior of the Parker Ridge Cabin.
Before summer starts we are aiming to better label our hiking trails to coordinate with our updated facility map. On the map you may see Chapel in the Woods, in the past this area was enjoyed by guests who would like to sit and worship at the “floating” cross. Though it hasn’t been available for years, it is our goal put a cross up at the Chapel in the Woods for guests to enjoy..
