Camp, Retreat and Conference Center

Senior Sessions

“A Cruise on Land” is the only way to describe a senior getaway at Ladore.  Our senior getaway program offers the 50 plus crowd the opportunity to get away at a reasonable price.  In some cases individuals may qualify for a scholarship.  Each week is themed and programed, but the beauty of the getaway is that you decide what you would like to do.  Do all the things on the schedule or you can do something entirely different.


Ladore has the perfect setting for your next conference or retreat – whether it be a  men’s, women’s, youth or couple’s gathering. Ladore is here to make your experience one you will want to repeat. Priced right with a flexible venue to fit your needs, a conference at Ladore will strengthen you as an individual, as a group member, but most importantly as a follower of Christ.


Special Events

Through out the year Ladore offers a variety of different special events.  Our family vacation weekend, Festive Holiday Craft Fair Weekend and our Indoor Yard Sales are just a few.  Providing opportunity for you to get away from the busy everyday and refocus.

Summer Camp

Summer Camp has a lasting impact on children.  One of the greatest gifts you can give a child is a sense of success and achievement.  Summer Camp teaches kids to be active, ask questions, seek help as needed and try new things.  It introduces them to new challenges they have not had opportunity to experience.  Ladore is a well rounded camp offering all the typical camp activities in a Christian environment.


Only Native American Indians lived in this area up to 1749. In 1749, about 300 Indians of the tribes of the Onondaga, Mohawk, Cayuga, Tuscarora, along with the Seneca, Shawnee, Delaware and Mohican, realizing that the white race was gradually pushing them away from their ground decided to sell what is now Wayne, Pike and eight adjoining counties to the Proprietary Government for 500 pounds of Sterling, valued at about $2,500.00.

What we miss at the Manger

WHAT WE MISS AT THE MANGER It’s that time of the year when nativity scenes start appearing all over the place.  While some forbid them on town squares, they still flourish in churches, shops and homes throughout the world. The Smithsonian says that St. Francis of Assisi staged the first nativity scene in 1223. The […]

What Difference does it Make?

WHAT DIFFERENCE DOES IT MAKE? I remember being told the story of the Dutch boy who saved his town by putting his finger in the leaking dyke.  Peter Miller, in Encyclopedia Mythica summarizes the story like this:   “Dutch legend has it that there was a small boy who upon passing a dyke on his […]

Its a Wonderful World

    A song made famous by Louis Armstrong comes to mind.  You may recall  “I see skies of blue and clouds of white, the bright blessed day, the dark sacred night, and I think to myself what a wonderful world.” He goes on to extol rainbows, friends, babies, then echo’s again, “What a wonderful […]


We want to thank you for making our third stay at Camp Ladore so enjoyable.  We had a great time, again.  Everyone is so friendly and courteous.  The food, as usual, was plentiful and delicious.  We are afraid to get on our scales!  The Camp is gorgeous and well kept.  We really enjoy our boat ride every year.  We are looking forward to seeing you next year. Again, thank you.

You have exceeded my expectations.  I felt catered to in all areas.  You make us feel so special.  We really appreciate the care and concern that went into the design and accommodations for seniors.  The food and the staff were top rate.

I just wanted to take a quick moment to thank you and the staff of Ladore for helping to make our Crazy Quilting Weekend such a huge success and so much fun.  We all look forward to coming back in October and I’m sure we will be more of us when the others hear about how nice Ladore was.

Thanks again,

Ruth – Crazy Quilters

We just wanted to thank you so very much for allowing us to stay at the lodge.  It was such a blessing to all of us that we were able to see and visit with my son both Saturday and Sunday.  It was a truly special time for all of us.  I cannot adequately express what a break it was not doing the whole five hour road trip in one day.

The grounds at Ladore are so beautiful and it was very peaceful to wake up and see all of nature right outside our door.  God has truly blessed us and taken care of us during this time.  He continues to be faithful daily through the kindness and generosity of  people like yourself and Ladore.   Thanks so much.
