The Camp Milan Meeting Retreat Center is hosting an open house on May 12, 2022 from 4:00-7:00 p.m. Camp Milan is the best kept secret in the Quad Cities, and that needs to change. This facility has existed about 10 miles south of the Quad Cities for decades, but few know about the facility, or that it is available to the public for rent.
Camp Milan can be found at 12909 13th St, Milan, IL 61264. Camp Milan is about 7 miles south of Rock Island, just off of route 67. It is a short drive, but feels like a remote getaway. The conveniences of a grocery store convenience stores, and fast food are within a five minute drive. The website is campmilan.org.
At the Open House there will be snacks, refreshments, and door prizes. Guests can tour the facility and dream about the amazing events that they could plan at Camp Milan. Rentals are available for four hours, all day, or overnight. It is the perfect space for meetings, retreats, family reunions, birthday parties, weddings, and dinners.
The sprawling 10 acres includes a small wooded area, a large covered pavilion with four charcoal grills and picnic tables for 80, a basketball court, a fire pit, a sand volleyball court, and a large open field to spread out under the canopy of huge oak trees. The retreat center features a full commercial kitchen, a service area, a dining room for 100 that features a screen, sound system, and fire place. There is also a balcony overlooking the woods, a large room for a secondary meeting space, and dorms that sleep 64.
The overnight facilities have recently been upgraded with the purchase of 64 brand new mattresses. There are shower and laundry facilities on site as well. Two wings of dorms makes it easy for large groups to have a great extended retreat.
The Open House will also feature plans for future improvements as Camp Milan hopes to open up to a new era of memories and celebrations.
