Blue Mountain Christian Retreat & Conference Center
Scenic Christian Conference Center in Eastern Pennsylvania
Welcome to Blue Mountain Christian Retreat and Conference Center located in northeastern Pennsylvania where you can come away from the busyness of life and spend time in the Presence of the Lord. Here on the Mountain, you are family!
Our founders, the Dornbierers made sure that all 375 acres on this part of the Blue Mountain range remained available for churches and families alike all year round! God gave them a vision to be a blessing to all of God’s children. We carry out their legacy by making ourselves available to personally answer all questions about holding church retreats or ministry conferences here on God’s mountain. You also have the option to attend one of our Blue Mountain events so your family can be ministered to by our anointed guest speakers and Children’s Ministry staff.
You can host your own day, weekend, or week-long group retreat in one of our multiple meeting spaces. Our special Group packages include nights of lodging, delicious buffet-style meals and meeting rooms. Our facilities provide a variety of settings, sleeping up to 400 guests. Due to our various types of groups, we have several units containing certain accommodations that could fit family, youth, women’s, and men’s retreats alike. We have single bedroom style units, efficiency apartments, 2 & 3 bedroom units, hotel-style alpines and even dormitory style units that sleep up to 32 guests. All our lodging facilities have heating as well as air conditioning coupled with private baths. Year round weekend guests join us from New York City, New Jersey, Connecticut, Philadelphia, Lancaster, Baltimore, Washington DC, and everywhere in between! Flying in from all over the U.S. is common with Philadelphia, Newark and Baltimore airports within driving distance from the Mountain.
BMCR hosts special events throughout the year; offering many women’s retreats, couples getaways, pastors and ministry leaders conferences, a men’s weekend retreat and our numerous youth explosion events. Summer Family weeks focus on worshipping with other families here on the Mountain in Spirit and in Truth! Each Wednesday night during our Summer Family Weeks we host free youth events called Summer Youth Explosion. These events are fun filled nights packed with, worship, great teachings and games. Each week we have a different sponsor from local churches, Christian Universities and Ministry Schools.
Come find great speakers specializing in healing, deliverance, Hebrew, the prophetic, worship warfare, intercession for the Peace of Israel and many other giftings. Your kids will have a blast with our BMCR Children’s Ministry Team! Expect fun activities prepared in our indoor basketball gym as well as in our meeting spaces. Bible lessons are preached to your children, providing an atmosphere for the Holy Spirit to fill them during service time. There’s opportunity for adventures in nature whether you hike up our trails, fish at our pond, have a campfire, or just take a swim at the pool. There is something for everyone to enjoy!

“I’ve been going to Blue Mountain Christian Retreat since I was a few months old. My parents would take me every year during a family week. This is where, since early childhood, I attended the Children’s Ministry program. Personally, the Mountain has been my second home because I grew up...
In 2015, we launched free youth events every Wednesday night called Youth Explosion. God was so faithful in every service; He met with teens that were hungry for an encounter with him. Our Weekend Youth Explosion in the Fall offered a chance for teens to go deeper with God again...
