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.  You can do some or all the activities 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 or retreat at Ladore will strengthen you as an individual, as a group member, but most importantly as a follower of Christ.


Special Events

Throughout the year Ladore offers a variety of different special events.  Our Family Vacation Weekend, Veterans Open House, Festive Holiday Craft Fair Weekend and our Indoor Yard Sales are just a few.  Providing an opportunity for you to get away from the busy every day 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 already experienced.  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.

Simply amazing and beautiful. When you think of retreating, Ladore is the perfect place and atmosphere to do that. Nature is wonderful, peaceful, colorful. The stillness in everything around you. Retreating at Ladore is just perfect and the staff is very helpful and welcoming. The food isn’t so great ? but acceptable and salad ? is always on point! I believe Ladore will continue to elevate.

Spacious rooms · Private bathrooms · Cosy atmosphere · Good for backpackers
–Sherley S Joseph

The rooms are spacious and the public bathrooms are the cleanest and nicest smelling than in most hotels!
Breakfast food is great, vegetables are always good. Because I have a low sodium diet, wish there was less
Salt used in dinner meals.

There is a great space for sewing, ironing, cutting out patterns and shared friendship communication which
Is what I believe to be the best!

What a great place for groups to work on their sewing and make new friends & meet their old (friends, that is). Lol, The Lodge is so comfortable and clean. Staff is very friendly & helpful and the food is delicious. If you’re tired of quilting you can enjoy the large hot tub & beautiful indoor swimming pool. I find it very relaxing & spiritual being there and love taking my walk every morning down to the lake. Thank you for this beautiful retreat.

I had the best time ever and I want to go back and be blessed again by the services, they really touched my heart and I know more now how much God loves me and cares about me. He is my all in all and always will be. I love Ladore Retreat and Conference Center.
