Summer is full-swing and camps still need your help to fulfill our mission of sending every child to camp who wants to attend; All Play Fundraising is ongoing, so you are still able to donate to our campership fund! DSC C&RM is delighted to share dates for upcoming fall retreats, including the new Teen Retreat (coming to both sites) for LGBTQIA+ individuals and their allies and two new camps at Mingus this fall and winter!

Retreats at Camp

Potosi Pines and Mingus Mountain are the perfect locations to hold retreats! Come enjoy the serenity and peacefulness of our beautiful locations. Plan your own retreat or let our staff help with programming and schedules; we can accommodate groups of 20 or more. If an overnight stay does not fit into your schedule, consider a day retreat! We can help plan your staff retreat, family camp, youth retreat, and more.

Camp is also a great getaway for a mid-week clergy retreat. Mingus Mountain offers two motel-style VIP rooms, complete with 2 single beds each, bed linens, towels, and private bathrooms.
