Our tour guides were awesome. We did the 7 zip and rappel course. Tim and his buddy yosai? ( Sorry I'm trying to get close with your name but I do hope your knee feels better!) We're amazing. Great people. These guides each had 7-8 years experience.... Together they had almost 20 years experience in zip lining. They also stay with you the ENTIRE time. I've been to other zip lining courses, this is by far the most professional and safest one I've been to. Keep up the good work we will be back with the family.read more

We rsvp for 10am.4 kids between ages 9 and 13 and 2 adults. We had so much fun at the ziplines and the elevated obstacle course. The first level of the obstacle course is tricky but easy, the 2nd level a little harder for us but still doable... 😂. We didn't wait much in line. The staff was friendly and fast. The place was very nice and clean.
The animal exhibitions were very nice as well.

Amazing place to visit! High ropes corses and zip lines are top notch. Both escape rooms I have done here are amazing...probably the best I’ve done! The staff is really friendly, especially the owner’s son! Also the lodging is very nice...I must say... the cabins are amazing! The only thing that needs improvement is the quality of the camp food:/ some times it’s pretty rough. But the 316 cafe has AMAZING shakes! Must get one while you’re there!read more

Picked without knowing much about the place because my grandsons, 13 wanted to go zip lining. Because going to other attractions in area thought let’s rent a cabin instead of staying in a hotel. Excellent choice. When two teenagers did not miss... their Xbox even once in 4 days you know it’s amazing.read more

We had an awesome time at the Wildlife Experience Free Time. Our 4 & 6 year olds (and a few of their friends/parents) had such a fun time getting up close and personal with multiple creatures. The guide was knowledgeable and so engaging. The whole... experience exceeded our expectations and we have been giving rave reviews so all our friends ever since! We cannot say enough nice things about how accommodating and pleasant staff was in the preparation of the day and on the day of the event. One of the staff even rescued our donuts from a naughty squirrel who tried to steal some bites while we were playing on the playground! Thank you to the whole team. It was a fun-filled, informational, hands-on event that we would definetely repeat!read more

where can I start, let's start by saying that this place is probably the friendliest place I've ever been to. Christina, Phil and Mary in the office were so sweet and pleasant and let's not forget patient (I must've asked a qazillion questions),... they helped me with booking to scheduling and anything else I was curious about. Then there's Emily from the giant swing and climbing wall, Mark at the wildlife scheduling, Hannah at the Horses and farm animal experience. The woman who gave me a handful of fresh cut Lavender (sorry I didn't get her name). EVERY SINGLE EMPLOYEE was simply a pleasure to meet and interact with. As for the facilities, the entire place was clean and well kept. The room was clean and well stocked with towels and linens. my granddaughter Aubree really enjoyed the activities she did. The instructors were caring and encouraging. The pool was a great refreshing way to get some sun and relax. I myself was very impressed with the whole experience and highly recommend this place. Thank you to the entire staff. You made my stay there something I will always cherish. I will be back!! Thanks again

Happy Dad here! pst...Want to enjoy some summer fun right in your own backyard tucked in the Ephrata hillsof PA? This amazing spiritual getaway with outdoors fun for everyone is it. My family and I set out on a day adventure traversing the tree... line , post to post with Nolan and Mike our zipline guides. These guys made something that could have been terrifying for most seem so easy and really fun. My wife who would have been afraid of this sort of thing felt easy around standing on platforms at heights some 70 feet high off the ground and joking with Mike and Nolan as they got us through with care full instruction. We had a blast and are looking forward to returning to enjoy many of the other activities this place has to offer.Thanks again Nolan and Mike for making a fun experience even more fun on our daughters 16th birthdayread more

Top notch experience. I went specifically for the 7 zipline package, though they have a variety of other packages and activities to take part in. We had 3 guides on our trip and they were all great; fun, conversational, and they all knew what they... were doing. As someone who's not great with heights, they made me feel comfortable and safe. The lines vary from not-so-high to a pretty solid 65 feet at the highest, and in length and speeds as well.I would absolutely go back. I wasn't sure how much I would actually enjoy it going in but ended up loving it. Highly recommended.read more

“I am in my 50's and this was my first time zip lining. At first I was nervous but I turned out to be the daredevil of the group going backward and hanging upside down. Matt and Michael were fantastic guides and I would recommend this to anyone. What a wonderful Christ based organization this is. ”

Judy Bidwellhusband and myself

“I just wanted to let you all know how much Brooklyn Miracle Temple enjoyed there say at the camp. Mister B was a great help and guide at our stay at the retreat. We actually took his advice and started to listen and hear each person in our groups ideas. All the staff from the zipline course to the paintballs activity and the lunch and pool team staff was so helpful . We just wanted to say thanks. And my God give you your heart desires over your business.”

“Just got home today from spending an amazing weekend at your camp with our Churches youth group. I want to thank ALL the staff at Refreshing Mountain for doing an awesome job with the kids, everyone was so friendly and helpful. The staff on your ropes course do a great job of encouraging the kids and make everyone, even me, feel like they could over come their fears. And your kitchen staff is incredible at cooking great meals and always serving with a smile. I also need to mention a staff person named Mary from the kitchen, she stopped from her busy schedule to take the time to pray with me for a student and for all the kids in our group. I was so touched by her, the Holy Spirit shines so beautifully in her. So thank you Refreshing Mountain Camp for a very enjoyable weekend, I pray I can return again someday!!”

“On behalf of our AmeriCorps members and the planning team, thank you for everything at Refreshing Mountain last week. Everyone enjoyed their stay; the meeting room was a great size and the Lodges were wonderful and clean. Everyone enjoyed the food and the kitchen staff was very friendly and very accommodating to our restricted dietary folks. You have a great site and grounds – truly was refreshing!”


“We have been coming to Refreshing Mountain for the last nine years and will continue to come back. The staff are great to work with and the accommodations are awesome. From beginning to end it is always a pleasure to come to Refreshing Mountain.”

Joey ForwoodElam UMC Youth Retreat

“Refreshing Mountain is Just That! What a wonderful time we had. We went on a zip lining excursion with Mr. B and Brandon and had a fantastic time. I would have "chickened" out on the challenge course, but Mr. B pushed us and we all found that we could do it. Even my 9 year old nephew! The resort is very well kept and in great shape and the area is beautiful. I did not know it was here in my back yard! I will definitely be going more often. I definitely give this place 4 Stars and a Must visit to all!”

“The staff were very helpful. In talking with them, I learned about some of the philosophy used in leading the group and working with the group dynamics. We enjoyed having the smaller number of students in each group. With the elementary age kids, it allowed our sometimes overly zealous children to have a fuller experience. I was very impressed and would bring our kids back again.”

“We had a fantastic time. It was my grandsons first real camping trip. We did the Explorer package with Diana who knew a lot about rock climbing, very personable and energetic. We had a blast with the paintball. The next day we did the 7 Zipline course with David and Ryan. We felt very safe with them. They explained everything that was going on and were very professional along with having a good time with us. We fed off their enthusiasm. We would definitely recommend Refreshing Mountain. Lots of things to do, great pool, playground, farm animals, all kinds of sports.”

“During a recent visit to my parents my Mother decided to finally fulfill her desire to Zip Line at Refreshing Mountain and I was happy to tag along. The atmosphere is truly "Refreshing" and the people were extremely patient and calming...We were both thrilled with our experience however would have loved to do one more line. The Two lines of the Flying V is great but a third line would give you greater appreciation of the experience. ABSOLUTELY WORTH WHILE!!!”

Joanne SMoms Bucket List

“My 10yr old son asked to go zip lining for his "adventure" birthday gift. So I took my son & girlfriend for the challenge course of 5 zip lines and 9 obstacle courses. We had a BLAST! Our two guides were incredible! One of them was able to talk my son through one of the obstacle courses he got nervous.”

TripAdviser ReviewerWonderful Experience! Lots of fun and Excellent guides

“We have come to Refreshing Mountain 4 times over the past year and it is always an awesome experience. We have done the aerial excursions which are a blast. The guides are very professional and adapt to all levels. I am a fearful novice and my kids are daredevils with climbing experience. We were all challenged and well care for. ”

TripAdvisor ReviewerRefreshing Mountain

“We booked the Aerial Excursion for the full zip line adventure and we couldn't have been more pleased! The Zip lines were fun and our tour guides (Gil and Maddie) were exceptional. We had a small group and were entertained, having fun and laughing the entire time! Great experience. Amazing time had by all!!”

“My husband and I did the Elevated Obstacle Course during on 19-year Anniversary Getaway and it was so much fun! Scary and an adrenaline rush but we both made it through (him much better than I!) Highly recommend to anyone going to Lancaster with or without children!!”

Mandy DElevated Obstacle Course was great and the guides were awesome!

“Our family did the Elevated Obstacle Course, 6 adults and a 5 year old, and everyone had a great time! Our grandson was a bit intimidated at first, but by the end, he was begging to go again. Instructors were helpful and encouraging and very patient, and the course was clean even with the couple of inches of snow that had fallen the night before. ”

Debra KGreat experience!

“My children are 10&8, girl/boy. We did zip lines, the high wire obstacles, paintball, archery, wall climbing, and peddle cars. We all had a great time! The location is beautiful. The facilities are clean and well maintained. The operation is well organized. Prices are reasonable. The atmosphere is relaxing and child friendly. ”

Aimee BWonderful experience!

“The Wildlife Center was a nice set up with many creatures including snakes, turtles, etc. Logan spent a long time with us making sure we saw everything in the exhibit and had every question answered. My daughter especially enjoyed holding the two snakes and touching some of the other reptiles on display. I would recommend this place to everyone. ”

TripAdvisor ReviewerGreat outdoor experience

“We had a great time! Our group ranged in age from 8 - 70 years of age. The guides, Tommy and Taylor were wonderful! They made everyone feel safe and secure while having fun! After we finished the zip line course, we popped over to the Wildlife Center and "played" with the reptiles! Refreshing Mountain grounds were fantastic, easy to get around, very clean and lots of room to roam.”

TripAdvisor ReviewerGreat Afternoon!

“I wanted to make a special memory with my daughter before her wedding in two weeks. So I surprised her with a zipline and obstacle package. Four of us embarked on an adventure we won't forget, filled with laughter, overcoming fear, and cheering on accomplishment. Our guides were awesome, informative, supportive, and lightened things when our fear got the best of us. Never once did I feel unsafe. You are never to old to make a memory, thank you for helping me make a special one with my daughter before she starts her new life adventure . ”

“Even though our group was running late because the start time we were told from our group was 1/2 hour off the staff made it work for our group! Thank you for making our zip lining experience a fun and safe time! We will be booking a Christmas lights zip line evening soon. Thanks again!”


“Me and my boys 6 & 8 did the explorer package they loved the paint ball is was alot of fun the guide was very polite and friendly. We would go back when in the area.”

Jason MFamily

“We had the greatest time. I brought my 3 grandkids ages 12,11,and 5. The guides Dan and Jousha were great, made you feel completely safe and. comfortable. My grandson after the first zip line got a scared thinking about it. But they talked with him and to their time with and convenient him he could do it again and he did. I appreciated that a lot. We can't wait to go again. A special to Dan and Joesha, again thank you so much.”

Pam SkoraszewskiWith the grand kids

“I am 51 years old and this was the first time zip lining for me. What an amazing experience thanks to Dan and Evan who were the most amazing and kindest guides that anyone could ask for. They made it so much fun and did everything to take the nerves completely out of the picture. I have told so many people about my experience and that I definitely doing this again. Thank you again to Dan and Evan for making this such a memorable experience for me and one that I am so grateful I did.”

KarenKaren & Cindy

“Simply put, our zipline adventure was absolutely phenomenal. We did the Challenge Adventure course and left Refreshing Mountain with absolutely no regrets at all. My 8 year old daughter weighs all of about 45 pounds soaking wet and she was still able to go solo on the majority of the ziplines without any issues. We could not have asked for nicer, caring, and knowledgeable guides. It was only the two of us in the group for the day and we felt 100% comfortable from the minute we stepped onto the property. I am looking forward to going back in the near future and my daughter has been asking me every weekend since! I waited too long to write my review and feel terrible that I do not recall our guides names. But he and she knows who they are and I want to thank them again for being not only great guides, but great, fun, people to spend time with up in the tree tops!”

The younger groups he visited also said what an amazing job he did!”

Brooke was amazing in providing the instructions, was very personable and fun, and encouraged our young kids (age 7 and 8) in the group to "fly" solo so they could truly enjoy the zip line. Our entire group had a blast and we would love to come back again. Thank you, Phil, so much for your time and patience in helping me to plan our event. You were very informative and provided excellent guidance with our event. Thank you so much for taking care of us.”

A day of adventure from zip lining to paintball, archery, wall climbing, and pedal carts. Added a horseback riding lesson with the best instructor. Each adventure welcomed our group and encouraging to my granddaughter especially during the zip line as it was her first time to do this. The day ended with a nice dip in the pool.”

“The weekend was God-ordained and I don’t say that lightly from the speakers to the worship leaders and the students were hungry for more of our Father. We have been going to Refreshing Mountain for several years. Our students talk about the weekend throughout the entire year it has such an impact on their lives. I believe there is an anointing on the gym by the ball field….on a different note, Justin is a pleasure to work with. The facilities were always clean and the space is conducive to large groups.”
