Guesting enjoying their outreach event at El Nathan Retreat Center in Flagstaff, Arizona.

About us

In 1935. . . 
We started out with two summer Bible camps for Navajo sheepherding children.  A boys and girls camp reached families with the good news of Jesus Christ.  Family camps and conferences grew out of that.  Churches were begun across the Navajo Reservation from those families whose lives were changed with the Good News of the Gospel. 


This heritage nows strengthens us as we work and serve alongside Churches, Organizations, and families across North America. ​

At the base of Mt. Elden in Flagstaff, AZ...
We are nestled right next to the Coconino National Forest, 3 blocks from the Mall and the city of Flagstaff...yet a world away from the businesses.  "peaceful" and "quiet" are words we hear from our guests.
