Laurel Ridge welcomes Guest Groups & Individuals seeking a Christian environment in which to retreat for respite and spiritual renewal.

Restoring faith through service…

Guests have been coming to Laurel Ridge Camp & Conference Center since its establishment in 1960. Our staff is dedicated to your comfort and care. We strive with exacting attention to provide you or your group with high quality facilities, healthier meals, environmentally friendly facilities, effortless set up and support of your event. We appreciate the confidence you have placed in us and are honored to carry out your expectations.

Working in harmony with God’s creation so you can connect with Him…

Whether a crackling fire on the hearth, a warm smile to greet you at the beginning of each day, the aroma of a cup of fresh gourmet coffee, a scrumptious meal, the gentle breeze and sun softly caressing your cheek; your spirits will lift and sore in this special place. Explore your inner self, connect with God, reconnect with others and leave with a feeling of purpose. Laurel Ridge facilities provide expansive views of the surrounding Blue Ridge Mountains.

Sit back in the rocker, take a walk on one of our many trails and wind your way through God’s awe-inspiring cathedral of trees at our back door. The evenings are quiet with crackling campfires whether you’re “roughing it” at summer camp or cozying up to the hearth in the luxurious Higgins Lodge. Spend time with family on the porch of Friends Cottage, re-purpose your own life during a reflective retreat at Gemeinhouse, or shape the lives of the youth in your church with a retreat at Tise Lodge. Laurel Ridge prides itself on working in harmony with creation by maintaining environmentally efficient standards whenever possible.

Laurel Ridge offers year-round programming for all ages, or if you prefer to do your own thing, our facilities are available for rental by individuals, churches, educational, governmental, civic and professional organizations. We stand ready to assist you in planning your time with us and look forward to sharing the beauty of all 688 acres of Laurel Ridge.
