Happy Spring! We sure are feeling it up here, with the warm temperatures and renewed life all around.

March 10 (8:00 AM):

We received three inches of snow and expect another few inches in the upcoming week but that's not stopping our crew!

March 6 (12:00 PM):

This past weekend we hosted 200+ people with our overnight retreats. The weather was cold, but we accomplished more work and are excited about the progress.

  • Facility status: Thanks to Meadow Valley Electric (MVE) Group our solar panels have been inspected and repaired and are up and running.
  • Activities status: Today we have an inspector from our zipline builder, Climbworks, here to inspect and evaluate our ziplines. We should have a projection of when our zipline tours will reopen in the next few days.

We expect more great news, stay posted!

March 1 (4:00 PM):

The rain impeded us from completing some of our outdoor projects today, but none the less much was accomplished.

  • Parking status: Cleared all parking areas of downed trees and limbs.
  • Activity status: We restored our sling shot and archery areas and ensured the nature center critters and farm animals will be ready this weekend. In addition the climbing tower and climbing wall will be fully operational as well!

Feb 28 (4:00PM):

  • Communication status: Minutes ago our communication lines were restored. Email and phone lines are now operational. We can now begin returning your calls!
  • Building status: All damaged roofs have been weatherproofed and are scheduled for permanent repair.
  • Activity status: We will have pedal carts and teambuilding in full operation this weekend, with more to come!

Our staff along with contractors have been working tirelessly campus wide to clear debris and begin repairs. We are extremely grateful for our neighbors who have given their time and energy. We are extremely thankful for how God continues to provide. We look forward to the days to come and our retreats this weekend!

Feb 27 (4:00 PM):

Around 3:30 on Saturday February 25th, a major wind storm hit Northern Lancaster County and significantly impacted Refreshing Mountain. We sustained damage to several buildings as well as our Ziplines / adventure activities. Nevertheless, we are so thankful to God that no one was hurt during the storm. Also, we are grateful that so many people in the community are helping with cleanup and repair. Our Retreat Center ( lodging, meals, Recreation) is still open and ready to host the many groups scheduled over the next few weeks. But our Ziplines and other adventure activities are temporarily closed as we inspect, assess, and repair. We hope to have everything back up and running within the next few weeks.
