Stronghold Center is a four-season retreat and camping center, operated by the Presbytery of Blackhawk, Presbyterian Church (USA). Our facilities include a range from tent camping opportunities to a hotel-style building onsite. Located one mile North of Oregon, IL, the beauty of nature exists in a variety of environments, all along bluffs overlooking the Rock River.

Founded in 1963, Stronghold Center proudly continues to provide a variety of Christian and secular programming. Our programming includes summer camps for ages 6-18, challenge courses, and a Confirmation Retreat. In October, Stronghold hosts the annual Olde English Faire in conjunction with the Autumn On Parade. Stronghold is also a great location for one-day seminars, business meetings and professional development programs, church picnics, and family reunions. Please let us know when to expect you!
