Kavanaugh was founded in 1875 by Bishop H. H. Kavanaugh who had a dream to carve out a piece of God’s creation and maintain it as a place for ministry, renewal and fellowship. Times have changed, but we are still carrying out Bishop Kavanaugh’s dream on 55 acres of creation affectionately referred to as “Holy Ground”.
Approximately 37 acres of our beautiful facility are designated forest land where you will find walking trails and benches along these trails for rest, reflection, prayer or simply taking in the sights and sounds of the woods.
On the ground you will find a place for a game of volleyball, horseshoes, softball, space for bonfires, hay rides, and more to make your stay here enjoyable and memorable.
Kavanaugh offers a Low Ropes Element Course for team building. This is great for groups from middle school age and up. The fee for this is $15.00 per person. Each session lasts approximately 2 hours and the recommended minimum number is 8 people. Kavanaugh has two staff members to lead this activity for a maximum of 20 people per session.
Make team building a part of your group retreat at Kavanaugh!
