Set on gorgeous Owasco lake, Casowasco is perfect for you

Our site boasts over 200 wooded acres, a beautiful gorge, and over a mile of shoreline on Owasco Lake. In addition to providing facilities for groups to conduct their own retreats, meetings, worship services, and programs, we can assist with program planning, guide groups through our low and high ropes course, conduct retreats and workshops, lead singing and games, and provide supervision for recreation activities. In the summer months (Mid June to Mid August) we operate as a Christian youth camp. All youth from ages 6 to 18 are invited to spend a week or more in one of our exciting summer camp programs.
