DuBose Conference Center is a perfect retreat, designed to be a welcoming place for meetings, seminars, conversation, contemplation, worship and fellowship. We offer guest groups a fenced pool, outdoor chapel, playing fields, a pavilion with a labyrinth, the Art Barn, and a campfire circle.
Our peaceful mountain setting offers plenty of nearby recreational opportunities as well, including the some of the top hiking trails and overlooks in the Southeast and plenty of ways to learn about the South Cumberland Plateau's rich history.
Our fenced pool is open May through September and is a refreshing diversion on those summer afternoons. Please note that groups are responsible for providing their own swimming supervision.
Anchored by a stone altar built in 1976 by Camp Gailor-Maxon, our outdoor chapel is a perfect setting for group worship, particularly at sunset.
Charles Crump Pavilion
Built in 1958 by the Episcopal Laymen's Conference, the Charles Crump Pavilion is used for large gatherings, games, square dances, and other activities. It features a stage for speaking or entertainment, as well as a Meditation Labyrinth used for reflective prayer.
Our 65-acre grounds feature two large playing fields that have hosted marching band camps, field games, star-gazing sessions, and more.
Let the creativity happen! Make your messes and masterpieces in our spacious art barn. All your need is your imagination and some supplies.
Nothing beats time spent around a cozy campfire at the end of a full day. Individuals will enjoy connecting with one another during one of the most memorable parts of your stay.
