Retreat and conference center for groups up to 200
The Procter Center
Lodging and Meetings
Procter Center is a mid-sized retreat and event facility for daytime and overnight groups. We serve spiritual, community, business, and youth organizations, as well as families and individuals who seek inspiration, reflection, education, teambuilding, and togetherness in a simple, peaceful, and secluded setting. The center sits on 200 acres of a 1,200+ acre site in predominately agricultural Madison County, Ohio. Procter Center is owned and operated by the Diocese of Southern Ohio.
Retreat or Meet
Procter Center accommodates many types of events with a variety of options for your lodging, meals, and activities.
Our programs include youth camps for children entering 3rd-12th grade, family camps, a bilingual Spanish/English family camp, and an Elder Camp for adults.
Our 6-acre vegetable and livestock farm includes an apple tree orchard, a high tunnel, raised beds, and a greenhouse. We care for laying hens who provide us with farm fresh eggs all year long.
