"My Nephew and his wife were married at Camp Laurelwood. It was a beautiful Wedding and wonderful Day. My Husband, mother-in-law and daugther stayed at camp. It was very comfortable there and I particulary felt right at home. I wish that there had been such an amazing camp like this when I was a child growing up."

"We just held our daughter's wedding at Camp Laurelwood. Family and friends said it was the best wedding they had ever been to! We had a lovely weekend, the staff were very helpful and the Chef did a great job with the food, including providing gluten free foods. I highly recommend them for a fun and beautiful wedding!"
