Idlewild Presbyterian Church is pleased to make space within the church facility available to visiting groups whose principles and objectives are compatible with those of Idlewild. Use of facility for Idlewild events and by Idlewild groups and members will have scheduling priority over all other organizations. 


Please complete and return the rental agreement. Fee must be paid at least 30 days prior to arrival date.


Please print or save for while you are at Idlewild. Thanks!



Idlewild has two rooms and a gym that can be used for overnight lodging. There are two private bathrooms, two shower areas, a kitchen that can only be used for dinner, and an ice machine. Sleeping rooms and showers will be separate for males and females. Visiting group members will be sleeping on the floor in the designated rooms and should bring air mattresses and sleeping bags.

Use of the facilities for overnight lodging will be limited to groups of 40 or fewer persons. A ratio of 1:5 adults for junior high youth and 1:7 adults for senior high youth will be required for groups with participants who are younger than 18 years of age.

On arrival, visiting groups will receive a checklist of expectations regarding care of the rooms and church facility during the group’s visit. Daily cleanup of the areas used by the group, as well as a thorough final cleaning, will be required.


Fees for use of Idlewild facilities by visiting groups will be determined by size of the group. The appropriate fee must be paid at least 30 days prior to arrival.

The fee schedule is as follows:

  • Fewer than 20 persons, $30 per night
  • 20 to 30 persons, $40 per night
  • 31 to 40 persons, $50 per night


Idlewild requires that visiting groups provide a certificate of insurance with coverage limits appropriate for use of the facilities. Based upon the extent of use, Idlewild may require that your group place Idlewild Presbyterian Church on your policy as a named insured for the duration of your visit.


Each member of a Visiting Group will also be asked to sign a Covenant regarding personal conduct that will help ensure his or her safety and well-being as well as demonstrate respect for the church property.

No smoking, drinking alcohol or use of illegal drugs is allowed on the church property. The organization or individual visiting will be held liable for any property broken or stolen in their designated area while present.


Members of visiting groups are welcomed and encouraged to participate in worship, study, and service activities occurring at Idlewild during their visit, and to engage with Idlewild members whenever possible.
