Casowasco is one of six camp and retreat centers owned and operated by the Upper New York Annual Conference of The United Methodist Church. Camp & Retreat Ministries is led by staff and volunteers, supervised by The Executive Director of Camp & Retreat Ministries and overseen by the Board of Camp & Retreat Ministries.
Our site boasts over 200 wooded acres, a beautiful gorge, and over a mile of shoreline on Owasco Lake. In addition to providing facilities for groups to conduct their own retreats, meetings, worship services, and programs, we can assist with program planning, guide groups through our low and high ropes course, conduct retreats and workshops, lead singing and games, and provide supervision for recreation activities. In the summer months (Mid June to Mid August) we operate as a Christian youth camp. All youth from ages 6 to 18 are invited to spend a week or more in one of our exciting summer camp programs.
Casowasco is located in the Finger Lakes Region of Central New York, on the west side of Owasco Lake. It is 9 miles south of Auburn and 7 miles north of Moravia on Rt. 38.
