Traditionally a Yurt was a portable, round tent covered with skins or felt used as a dwelling by nomads in Central Asia. At Camp, the Yurts are structured by wooden poles and have reinforced walls with wooden lattice. They are kept dry from the outdoors by a canvas wall and ceiling, with a plexiglass dome at the peak. We have one Yurt (Mulberry) on Cabin Hill and 3 Yurts in “The Glen”. Each yurt has electrical outlets and a layer of insulation. They can sleep up to 10 in each with 5 bunk beds.
Our Outdoor Chapel overlooks Lake Huron and is situated in a cedar forest just steps from the Beach. Listen to the waves crash against the shore as you celebrate as a group in worship, workshop or presentation. Can seat up to 175 on tiered bench seating and a sound system is available to rent at a small charge.
