We got married at Camp Pendalouan in June and cannot say enough about how special this place is. The camp is beautiful and well maintained. The staff were all so kind and went above and beyond to assist us with our every need. We got so many compliments on the venue! I highly recommend for anyone who wants to do a camp wedding.”

“Engaging employees is hard work!  We found exactly what we were looking for at Camp Pendalouan.  It was a budget friendly retreat where our team received personalized attention from staff.  Each activity brought us closer together as a team, built trust and understanding, and above all enhanced our ability to effectively communicate.”
