Set on top of Tuscarora Mountain, Sky Lake is a place of relaxation for you.

Our rustic charm and comfortable surroundings await your arrival. Retreat to a chair overlooking the picturesque lake or go for a leisurely stroll on one of the trails that meander through the bountiful forests. Our year-round facilities offer the perfect setting for an intimate week-long retreat or a day-long conference for 200. In the summer months, we operate as a resident Christian summer camp. Children, youth, and persons with special needs are invited to spend a week or more in one of our exciting summer camp programs. Since 1947, countless religious, educational, nonprofit, and service organizations have found strength for the journey from time spent at Sky Lake.
