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 – 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.

Whether your group is small or a few hundred, Ladore has a venue and a price that will make your conference memorable for everyone.


Through out the year Ladore offers a variety of different retreats.  Our family vacation weekend, Festive Holiday Craft Fair Weekend and our “Boot Camp” are just a few.  Providing opportuntiy for you to get away from the busy everyday and refocus. Or, plan YOUR own retreat and allow Ladore to host for you.

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.

Red Nose Day

Today our Seniors participated in the National Red Nose day. The money goes to organizations that help children and young people in the US and across the world. The aim is to keep children safe, encourage education, and good health. The day started with seniors purchasing red noses. Staff prepared baked goods and sold them […]

What comes to mind when you hear the word “Indestructible”?

I think of a 1980 sci-fi movie named Hanger 18. In brief, some astronauts bump into something in space that causes a UFO to land in the desert. The government finds the craft, aliens, and abducted humans, and stashes them away in a secluded base. The returning astronauts attempt to find and disclose what the […]

Seasons Come and Seasons Go

Here at Ladore, like everywhere else in America, it is the first day of spring – it’s snowing – again!  While people may believe that spring is never coming, it is a sure bet that it WILL.  Scripture reminds us in Ecclesiastes 3:1-8 that, indeed, there is a season for everything.  And everything comes in […]



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,

Dear Staff at Camp Ladore,  You accepted me as a scholarship attendee for the senior week.   I never imagined what a beautiful facility I’d be enjoying.  All our you were so thoughtful and sweet to us.  Yes, I felt loved.  I so enjoyed your pool and the water aerobics.  Then because I exercised I treated myself to the hot tub.  I wanted to take it home! The kitchen turned out so much variety the only way I could restrain myself was in knowing another meal was coming in a few hours.  Yum!!  I thank you for a lovely planned senior week.  God bless your mission.

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.

My Late husband and I have been to Ladore five times.  Now that he is gone, his is in a place that is even more glorious then Ladore.  My income is his social security.  Last summer I found out because of my income, I was eligible for a scholarship.  When I heard this I cried every time I thought of my upcoming trip.  I had thanked the Lord for giving me such a wonderful gift of a scholarship over and over.  I also say that you can’t out give God.  How amazed I am by the Lord giving me far more than my income could supply.  I also want to thank all of you for making my trip so memorable. I was so blessed to be there to experience Ladore once again.  Thank you so much and I think it is absolutely wonderful that scholarships are given.  May God continue to bless each one of you.  Joy in Jesus.
