Templed Hills Camp & Retreat Center
Day Use Event Space or Overnight Retreat Center
Templed Hills Camp is available year round to host your non-profit group up to 321 people in the summer and up to 154 the rest of the year. The camp is located near Bellville in Ohio and has recently refreshed and renewed the camp with many site improvements. As Templed Hills Camp management, we offer excellent camp services and take care of all the details so you can focus on bringing your program.
The rolling hills and beautiful trees with nearby Mohican River offers a natural setting which allows your group to escape from the daily grind and come into harmony with nature.
We invite past users and previous users of Pilgrim Hills Camp (now closed) to come see our updated site.
Welcome! We want to encourage groups of all types to book space and take advantage of all the amenities we offer (see list below). Whether you want to bring your group for the day, or for longer stays we have a variety of lodging options and indoor/outdoor meeting areas.
Please see detailed descriptions below for dining options, recreation opportunities, lodging options and indoor/outdoor meeting spaces.
