Overview

We invite you to hold your next retreat at Camp Susque.  Our facilities offer retreats that can be relaxing and refreshing or full of outdoor adventure or anywhere in between.  From August to May, we partner with groups of all kinds and ages to custom-build retreats that meet their unique needs and goals. From meals and lodging to campfires and audio-visuals, let our Retreat Coordinator plan your perfect getaway!

In addition to meals and lodging, we offer activities such as basketball, volleyball, fishing, a game room, hiking trails, a playground, low ropes course, and a tube chute. For groups looking for meeting space, we offer a boardroom-style location, as well as several other types and sizes of meeting rooms throughout the facility.
