A rugged camp site is available with an enclosed fire pit, picnic table and shepherd staff hooks for lanterns. This is one of the favorite spots for scout troops and other outdoor adventurers.
The cross is the central point in the prayer garden. The prayer garden has benches located throughout the path for you to enjoy some quiet time with the Lord.
We have a newly rebuilt amphitheater. Its great for your church services, music gatherings, wedding venue and other events. The amphitheater was rebuilt in 2017 after being destroyed in the 2016 fires that destroyed hundreds of acres in the community.
