Why Use Camp Smoky????  Camp Smoky offers a spiritual atmosphere yet is only minutes to town or attractions. Worship and meeting space are provided with all rentals.  Due to larger room sizes, you can use fewer chaperones.  Can you trust your group at the local motel? Can you trust the other people at the local motel? Will someone sneak out? Will your youth get a little loud or stay up late and get security or the police called out? Will they damage expensive property or furniture? Camp Smoky's buildings are designed to accomodate youth and has very few damage claims. If you try to rent a large cabin, where is it? Are you prepared to pay for damages to a private residence? Some windows in cabins cost more than $1,000. Who is going to cook? Have you ever tried to cook for 30 or more in a regular kitchen??? What a mess. Not to mention the time and trouble of procuring all the food. Put your retreat in the hands of the pros. Put Camp Smoky to work for you.
