Retreat Meeting Spaces
Built in 1953 of pine logs on a foundation of granite rocks from the surrounding mountains and featuring two huge stone fireplaces, the Chapel at Quaker Ridge will be the focal point of your ministry time here. Seating capacity is 225, but the chairs can be quickly cleared away to leave plenty of room for skits, breakout groups, games, etc. The south wall is full of windows to show off a one-of-a-kind view of Pikes Peak while the west side faces our reflection pond surrounded by benches for those times of quiet meditation.
The stage is large enough to accommodate a full-size worship band and has complete stage lighting and AV control from the sound and light booth in the back of the room.
The Chapel has a built-in four-speaker public address system for vocal reinforcement and audio for the built-in AV system. The Chapel PA system is not designed to run a band through, so your summer camp worship band will need to bring their own system. Quaker Ridge does NOT provide microphones, cables, direct boxes, etc. for your PA and AV needs, so please bring what you need to run your programming.

The Rough Rock Café is named in honor of our Navajo-speaking Rough Rock Friends Church in Arizona. The café is located on the main floor of Clark Lodge across from the Fireside Room and will seat about 24 people at unique Aspen log, pub- style tables and stools. Plenty of outlets and free Wi-Fi make for a comfortable place to sip a latte from our camp store and chat with your friends.

Frying Pan Café
Part of the original Lodge that was built in 1949, the Frying Pan Café has seen many improvements and upgrades since the days of sawdust floors! The kitchen staff serves delicious food buffet-style in a comfortable, relaxed dining atmosphere.
