Welcome to the world's coolest church camp. Yes, most church camps are fun, but a special thing happens when you take kids completely outside of their comfort zones. Toss in some high adventures like mega zip lines, super fast water slides, mud races, lake blobs, and Ocoee River rafting—you won’t believe the amazing results!
Come see for yourself how Ocoee Retreat Center offers an unparalleled ministry environment for youth leaders who seek a higher impact from their summer youth camp. It’s a place where dreams are conceived and goals are achieved—your youth ministry will never be the same, and the kids will ask to come back for more.
Our 300-acre campus, less than an hour from Chattanooga, brings together 600 youth per week for a high-adventure youth camp experience including meals, lodging, and crazy amounts of fun. Simply get your youth students here, and we’ll handle the rest with our unique outdoor programming, spacious facilities, and ability to tune into your loftiest church camp aspirations.

“Our student ministry has partnered with ORC for the past 6 years for our summer camp. The staff has always been a joy to work with, making their primary aims customer satisfaction and meeting our groups’ needs. The facilities are diverse, well-priced, user-friendly, and ever-improving. I highly recommend ORC to any group looking for an outdoor experience.”

Ocoee Retreat Center is a favorite setting for sports teams and leagues seeking a unique team building retreat in a natural environment. Our group leaders will give you a special sports retreat that combines your team building ideas and visions with our years of experience planning adventurous programs—all designed to create lasting results that your team will bring home and utilize.
With the great outdoors as your team retreat setting, amazing things happen: kids learn to communicate effectively; relationships become stronger and more meaningful; goals are set and achieved; and your team is instilled with a purpose beyond sports.
From Greek life to outdoor clubs and college orientations, Ocoee Retreat Center is home to a huge variety of student retreats. With activities tailored to break the ice and bring people closer together, we’ll set your student leadership on the right path. Don’t assume the giant lake blob or paintball guns are just for kids—they can have a huge impact (no pun intended) on even the hippest 20-something university student.
Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts, 4-H groups, school groups and many other youth organizations visit Ocoee Retreat Center each season. As a top youth retreat location with some of the best adventure activities in the region, scout camps and youth groups discover a world of fun in our all-inclusive property. There’s truly something for everyone, whether your group seeks a quick getaway or an action-packed schedule of events.
