Arrowhead Expansion Project

Your Financial Support is Vitally Important

The Mt. Morris Board of Directors asks for your support, allowing this much needed multi-use dining facility as an addition to the Arrowhead Center. Your one time gift or pledge will allow Mt. Morris to provide excellent hospitality to hundreds of camps, retreats, conferences, and celebrations for years to come.

The Western District of the Moravian Church purchased what would become the Mt. Morris Camp & Retreat Center in 1964. Sandhill was built as the first programming space with complete kitchen facilities in 1972. In 2000 additional building was accomplished with the construction of 7 cabins, Black Oak and Arrowhead as the primary program and dining space. The Mt. Morris Board of Directors, affirmed by the 2016 Western District Synod, has approved a $600,000 campaign to add an addition to Arrowhead that would serve as an enlarged dining area and additional program space.

When there are multiple groups using Mt. Morris there is not sufficient program and dining areas. The number of guests on a weekend typically ranges from 50 to 75 people represented by up to three different groups. If Arrowhead Center is used by one group for programming, there is only dining space for 30 people.

Summer youth camps use Arrowhead Center for meals, program, crafts, and recreation which requires multiple set up’s and rearranging of the room during the day.

Staffing has increased from an Executive Director and part time office administration in 2000 to an Executive Director and part time office administration, food service, housekeeping, and maintenance.
