Lodging Options

Take some time to assign lodging and inform your group of the arrangements - they need to bring bedding (sleeping bags and pillows, or sheets/blankets/pillows) and towels. Camp AREV has dorm-style lodging in two areas. In our Lodge, sleeping areas on each side are separated by a common meeting area. Each Lodge room has a sink / mirror and area for toiletries, and 6 new bunk beds/mattresses, and 2 rooms share one bathroom. There are 4 rooms on each side of the Lodge, which accommodates 48 people total.

Our 2 Lower Cabins also offer dorm-style lodging. Each Cabin has 4 rooms, with space for luggage and 10 bunk beds. Each Cabin also has two large bathrooms with multiple sinks, stalls, showers. The Lower Cabins accommodate 80 people total.

Creating Your Schedule

When you have the retreat date, and lodging and meeting space at Camp AREV, you can create a schedule. Camp AREV is conveniently located off I-5 and you can drive right up to the parking area where most groups arrive and check in (between the Lodge, Chapel and Dining Hall). Groups typically arrive shortly before or around dinner time Friday, get themselves situated, and gather for dinner. Please allow 5 minutes in your dinner announcements to have our Hospitality Coordinator greet your group and go over safety and other guidelines.

Meals are delicious and generous and are typically scheduled as follows: Breakfast at 8:00 am, Lunch at 12:00 noon, and Dinner at 6:00 pm. There is a drink station where water, coffee and tea is available.

Recreation: Camp AREV offers several free recreation options: a new basketball court, soccer and softball fields, tournament-quality ping-pong, Frisbee Golf, a Low-Ropes Challenge Course, and nearby access to local hiking trails.

Zip Line, Archery, and Paintball are available with advance reservations of at least 30 days, and for extra fees, as staff run them. Staffed recreation activities are typically scheduled on Saturday afternoons between 1:00 pm and 5:00 pm for weekend groups. Please inquire about mid-week availability during summer months or at other times of the year.

Meetings and Worship Times: Smaller guest groups meet in our Lodge (capacity ~50), larger groups use our Chapel (capacity ~200). We have screens available for projection; guest groups should plan on bringing their own projectors, laptops, musical instruments and sound systems. Camp AREV does not have wi-fi! Have your group take a break from their devices and fully participate in your retreat program!

Victory Circle: Your group can schedule an evening meeting at our outdoor gathering space. Please plan ahead with our Hospitality Coordinator, who is the only person that can create a camp fire and extinguish it at Camp AREV.

Let Us Know! And Tell Others About Us!

We ask every guest group to let us know if there is anything we can do to assist with their retreat, and to tell us the results of their retreat and how their group enjoyed the stay. We have several repeat renters, and we appreciate referrals.
