Weekend Programs and Rentals

Great Space for Youth Groups, School, Church and Community Events

As a non-profit organization not only are we affordable, but by letting us host your event you know you are helping us serve children in need with our programs.

We have two adjoining properties that are great for many types of youth events or hosting your next community event. Take a look at our facilities for your spring and fall youth group events.

Typical events that we can accommodate:

  • Scout groups
  • Community Service Groups
  • Church groups
  • Youth sports groups
  • Community events such as BBQ, Bingo
  • Picnics

Sorry – we are unable to do weddings or similar types of event.

Because of our summer camp programs, there are no rentals from June 1 – August 25
