Rentals & Retreats

Camp Chinqueka is set up for conference operations in the late Spring and early Fall. Due to the camp operation, there is no availability for booking dates from mid June until the end of August because of the camp operation.

Our facilities are great places for corporate retreats, education or sport retreats (football camp & band camp), church retreats for young people or adults, weddings, family or school reunions, and whatever other gathering that needs a large place with meals and lodging included.

Our minimum number for rental is 35 persons, with a maximum around 200 persons. If there are day people that would not be needing overnight accommodations, the camp facility can feed up to 350 persons (such as a wedding or day retreat). Our usual fees start around $75-$100 per person/per day for use of the camp facilities and cabin accommodations, with our basic menu. Menu changes and additional staff required to run some of the activities will increase the cost per person. There are no linens or blankets included with this fee. Most people can bring their own, or use sleeping bags in our dorm style cabins (with facilities) for the few short nights you are here.

Our facilities include (in addition to the three excellent daily meals and lodging) use of our conference building with four meeting rooms (approx. 900 sq.ft. each and accommodating 50 – 75 people each for meetings); large sport field for football, marching practice, or field sports; indoor sport facility; great waterfront area with swimming, boating and canoeing; local hiking and mountain biking trails; river tent camping sites available; and a variety of campus areas open to the groups – tennis, volleyball, video lounge, staff area with separate phone line and use of computer or copy machine. Our Lodge has a cool shaded wraparound porch overlooking the lake for a lazy place for relaxing and reading. There is no heat in any of the sleeping cabins, but there are a number of buildings with fireplaces for warming on a cool morning or evening. The dining hall is a large area with a stone fireplace and also has an elevated stage for productions or meetings.
