Adult and Family Day and Overnight Opportunities
You are invited to join us at Templed Hills for some socially distanced opportunities! Please email Jill (email@example.com) to register at least 10 days ahead for overnight opportunities.
- • “Outside is best!” This is what we’ve learned in this Pandemic. Wash your hands, wear a mask, keep physically distant, and when you do leave your home go outside! Many of us have always known that “outside is best” and are so happy to share our sacred outdoor spaces with everyone, as long as you don’t get too close 😊
- • Templed Hills Camp offers a safe place for peace, relaxation, and rejuvenation in God’s creation. We know families and individuals still have need for a safe sacred space to retreat and Templed Hills can meet this need.
- • We want to provide a safe recreation and retreat space for families and adults this fall and winter.
- • Self-contained hiking, camping, and outdoor activities are among the lowest risk activities to spread Covid-19.
- • Crisp air, falling leaves, crunching leaves, bright colors, cool breezes… fall is a great time to be outside in Ohio! Come walk with God and find your peace and Sabbath this fall at Templed Hills.
- • Snow falling, sledding, and cool breezes make winter a great time to be at camp also.
- • Did you know that Snow Trails is about a 20 minute drive from Camp? There you can ski, snowboard and snow tube, usually December to March. After a day on the slopes, come spend a relaxing night and morning at Templed Hills. Click here to learn more about Snow Trails.
