Cedar Mountain Retreat
CMR was founded in 1988 through a united step of faith by Fellowship Bible Church in Lindon, UT; Valley Bible Church in Cedar City, UT; Southland Bible Church in St. George, UT; and Richfield Bible Church in Richfield, UT. But currently also includes Mountain View Bible Church in LaVerkin, UT; River Valley Bible Church in Mesquite, NV; and Las Vegas Bible Church in Las Vegas, NV.
CMR is located at 8,700 feet elevation on the beautiful Kolob plateau, Its situated on 20 aspen covered acres, twenty-two miles southeast of Cedar city.
The Camp season runs from mid June through the end of July and includes a Leadership camp in which counselors are trained; Teen Camp; Middle-School Camp; Junior Camp; and Family Camp. (Exact dates are posted on our Website Calendar.)
Camp facilities include 9 cabins, dining hall, chapel, shower and restroom facility plus a ‘Snack Shack’. Sports and recreational opportunities available include our double beach-sand volleyball court, 9-hole Frisbee golf course, basketball, climbing wall, archery range, shooting range, plus hiking and special activities.
A dedication to the practical teaching of the Word of God remains the hallmark of the CMR ministry. Whether on hikes in chapel, or around the campfire, we want every camper to deepen their walk with the Lord, and better understand His love for them.
