Monte Toyon Camp

Helgesson Hall , a light, spacious building with beamed ceiling and wood floor, lends itself to large group activities. It consists of a central assembly area with stage and seating for up to 250, plus an adjacent small meeting area.

Additional meeting space is available in nearby Hollidge Hall (shown in picture above), or in the quiet, hillside setting of Silverthorn Chapel , with indoor/outdoor meeting and worship space for 50 or more. The Main Dining Hall , which offers buffet meal service for up to 200, also converts to large meeting areas.

Two-story overnight accommodations in Cary Lodge include 16 four-person rooms and three two-person rooms, serving a total of 70 guests. A cozy lounge is located on the first floor with shower and restroom facilities on each floor. Miller and Morris Dormitories , in a sunlit clearing nearby, house 76 in nine guest rooms.

Camp facilities also include an outdoor amphitheater, two campfire circles, a playfield, volleyball and basketball courts, the spectacular Sumner Rhododendron Garden and hiking trails (see Camp Map) .
