“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. ”

“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!!”

“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!”

“Everything was great and the staff was awesome especially the ones that did our team building activities. The staff member who did our evening team building event did a great job connecting with the girls.”

Kathleen JonasGirl Scout Troup #91504

“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.”

TripAdvisor ReviewerExplorer Package

“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 decided on the Flying V since neither of us tried this before. 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.”

“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

“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. ”

Our group loved the zip lines, high ropes and archery. The staff encouraged everyone. We will definitely go back!”

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 . ”

Karen GKaren G. & Family

“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!”

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!”

“We had Mark come to do a reptile/amphibian show at our summer camp. We all raved about the show. He brought a large amount of different animals, was very informative about them and the kids loved it. You could tell he has a natural love for the animals. The younger groups he visited also said what an amazing job he did!”

“Refreshing Mountain is a beautiful and family friendly atmosphere. The staff was great on the Flying V Zipline. 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.”

My kids held a snake, rode Toby the gentle giant and swam in the super fun pool. We did geocaching, archery and sling shots too. The prices are fair and you could spend a whole day here just exploring. Great Job RM! We will be back.”
