Agapé Center for Environmental


"Awareness is becoming acquainted with environment,
no matter where one happens to be." ~
Sigurd Olson

Located on 624 acres of beautiful rolling hills, cascading streams, and diverse forests, Camp Agapé is located just 50 minutes from downtown Raleigh. This unique and secluded setting, provides a special "time and place-apart" that lends itself perfectly to small group experiences.
