Come stay with us, tour our facility, and partake in the activities your daughter will be doing while here at camp. Some of our summer staff come in just so you can get to know them and hear their camp stories. The best part is you can do as little or as much as you’d like. We create a schedule that is up to your choosing of participation. We canoe, shoot rifles and bows, climb the rock wall, make arts and crafts, and much more. Evenings are spent story telling around our campfire with Owner/Director Jane Ragsdale, and nights are spent in your own cabin.

Common Questions

What activities can we do?

You may do as little or as much as you want. We want to provide a chance to experience various activities that we offer during the summer such as the climbing wall, horseback riding, canoeing, arts and crafts, and a bunch of other fun activities. A schedule is provided to everyone upon arrival.

Where do we sleep?

Moms sleep in a tepee and campers are assigned a room with other girls in their same age range. All tepees are air-conditioned and have private baths.

Are meals provided?

Just as we do at camp, we gather in the Dining Hall three times a day and eat together. After lunch and supper, we sing camp songs and make announcements about the next round of activities. It’s a special time to interact with others.

Is it just for first time campers?

Many people come to the retreat to get an up-close look at The Heart before enrolling. Others come to share the excitement of camp together with their campers. It’s open to everyone!

What should I pack?

We will provide all bedding and bath towels, so please do not worry about packing those types of items. Here’s what we recommend you to bring:

Play Clothes, Swim Suit, Shoes for walking in the river (canoe trip), Beach towel, Camera, Flashlight (optional, but fun), Long pants and boots for riding (a must), Hard hat for riding, if you have one, Leisure reading

Must I participate in all activities?

Do as much or as little as you please! We find that the more things you try your hand at, the more fun you will have!
