Each summer, from mid-June to mid-August, Rockmont is a private, Christian camp serving over 1,600 young people from all parts of the world. The rest of the year, we make our facilities available to groups both large and small.
Located on the site of the former Black Mountain College, Rockmont has been listed on the National Register of Historic Places. It is a beautiful rustic setting—600 acres of mountainous woodlands including a private lake—that keeps groups coming back year after year.
Rockmont has campgrounds and cabins for large groups, as well as small retreat groups and families. View some of our facilities below:
- Grey Eagle Lodge: sleeps 33; great for retreat groups
- Gloryland: sleeps 18
- Lake House: sleeps 3; perfect fisherman’s getaway
What to Expect at Rockmont
Rockmont’s buildings and grounds are suited for a variety of purposes. We routinely accommodate up to 5,000 people each spring and fall for an annual 3-day music festival, yet our buildings, fields, and other facilities are close enough to one another to be convenient for small groups. Our various buildings include ample meeting space for seminars and retreats.
On the shores of Lake Eden, picturesque Eden Hall serves as both our dining and banquet/dance/meeting hall. A full-service commercial kitchen is available, and a large stone fireplace anchors one end of the long room, adding both atmosphere and warmth.
Our most popular sleeping accommodations are found in Birch and Buckeye Lodges, which sleep 65 each (camp style, with 8-12 per room in bunk beds), and have semi-private bathrooms. Up to 30 additional cabins with access to shower houses are located on the property. (Water is turned off in mid-November and back on in mid-April).
Brookside Gymnasium is particularly convenient during wet weather when large groups need sheltered recreational space.
Amenities and Accommodations
We can provide meeting rooms if you need them, and our facilities include 2 soccer fields, 3 softball fields, a football field, and 4 tennis courts. Activities can range from basketball and swimming to canoeing, fishing, volleyball, horseshoes, Frisbee golf, and hiking on miles of marked trails. Special arrangements can be made to use our 50-foot climb and rappel tower, Gully Washer, water wall, and the zip-line.
Camp Rockmont provides some equipment for rental groups, to include items such as canoes, paddles, life jackets, etc. Rockmont will also provide a staff of certified and trained lifeguards for any rental agreement involving waterfront activity. Please do not hesitate to contact us to discuss what other rental items or personnel we can offer. We will gladly assist you in locating cooks, caterers, entertainers, program specialists, music, or any other equipment, supplies, or services you might need that are not provided by Rockmont as part of your lease agreement.
