This is no mere vacation! Camp is a week-long wake-up call. A dynamic camp or retreat experience shakes people from a society-induced sleep with jarring adventure, thought-provoking discussions, challenging activities, caring counselors, and time for restoration. Despite the unmistakable value of a camp and retreat experience, there is a glaring lack of facilities and programs of this type in Utah. Big Canyon was developed to fill this very void. 

Big Canyon offers an incredibly beautiful camp and retreat experience including a rustic lodge with meeting rooms, sleeping and cooking facilities, seven sleeping yurts with inside bathrooms, and event/activities planning assistance. In the state of Utah, Big Canyon is unique in what it offers to its guests! Big Canyon is a first-rate facility that can help build community, nurture spiritual and individual growth, strengthen relationships, and provide needed resources for local churches and other organizations
