Group Adventures

Adventure is in our Nature

Good times start here.

Scouts, YMCA Adventure Guides, church groups and other non-profit organizations can find exciting, educational, and adventurous activities amongst our 750 wooded acres surrounding Lake Copneconic. Camp Copneconic also plays host to business retreats and conferences, providing a great opportunity to meet in a space outside of their normal routine. Conference groups and party planners will find that our various facilities are ideal for many different types and sizes of group gatherings.

With a variety of facility options, your group can enjoy small group discussions in one of our many intimate breakout spaces, or host large group get-togethers in our Copneconic Lodge. The lodge can accommodate up to 450 people for meals; and it doubles as an assembly hall with a stage and audiovisual system available for use.

For overnight events, we can accommodate up to 450 beds in our sleeping facilities. Camp will also take care of all your meals for your stay. Camp Copneconic is known for our fabulous food service and great meal options. Meals are typically planned by our food service staff; but you may choose to customize your menu.

If you’re interested in incorporating camp-led activities, please be sure to inquire about our various types of programming we can offer your group. For all Group Adventurers, contact Brandon Dreffs at brandondreffs@campcopneconic.org or (810) 629-9622 for more information or to book your next date.
