Our mission at Montgomery Camp & Conference Center is to welcome all people of all ages to experience Christ and creation in ways that deepen faith and strengthen relationships. In order to continue this mission and continue Montgomery’s 50+ years of building relationships, we must work as a family to care for the grounds God has graciously given us.
One of the best ways to help shape up our land is to join our “Adopt-a-Cabin” program.
This program involves having individuals, groups or churches “adopting” one of the sleeping cabins and renovating it. The renovation includes both the inside and outside restoration of the cabin. Things such as replacing old worn out wood trim, repairing or replacing gutters and doors, painting the outside (including prep work) replacing electrical outlets, removing and replacing light fixtures, replacing towel rack, shower rods, curtains and overall making the cabin more appealing to groups.
Participation in the Adopt-a-cabin program can be done in different ways and at different levels. You can choose to simply donate the funds to finance the project, or you can donate both the labor force and the funds to complete the project. Our staff has chosen color schemes and will guide you with the work. This is so that finished projects will meet insurance and accreditation requirements, and presents a unified appearance. Plans for renovation must be reviewed and approved by the project coordinators prior to the commencement of work.
To better ensure the upkeep of your hard work, we have put in place a preventative maintenance plan to ensure that we keep these buildings restored and beautiful for years to come. With your support, these cabins will help us serve hundreds of campers and retreat guests each year.
