Our space is your space.
Labyrinth | Hillside Chapel | Hiking Trails | Resource Library | Volleyball Court | Disc Golf | Geocaching
The Welcome Center is filled with an assortment of books, activities and resources available
to all guests at Hollis. Feel free to stop by and peruse. Developed by an Eagle Scout, we have a “team building” activity box
for groups to check out, and use during their stay here at Hollis.
The Hillside Chapel includes an altar, benches, fire ring, and a cross high in the trees. It is a fine setting for an outdoor worship service! Seating available for up to 80 guests. Access to the chapel is via the Trail system and is not ADA accessible.
Situated down the hill from the Welcome Center,
our sand volley ball court invites guests to spend the afternoon in play.
Over 5 miles of marked trails offer unstructured opportunities to come face to face with nature.
Listen for the sound of bluebirds near the meadow or relax and contemplate God's work in a marshy space
on an observation platform. Whether hiking the hills or in the high meadow,
there are many encounters with God's creation waiting to surprise you.

The Hollis Outdoor Labyrinth is a pattern which creates a sacred space. The labyrinth is an ancient tool for reflection on
one's life and one spiritual journey. Walking the labyrinth is 'experiential spirituality' and symbolizes our journey ‘to and from God'.
Read more about the Labyrinth here.
Disc Golf is very similar to traditional golf except instead of a ball and a hole you have discs and a basket. The goal of disc golf is to get the disc to land in the disc catching basket. Each basket is played as a par 3 (three throws per basket).
The player with the least amount of throws and lowest score is the winner.
You'll find Hollis has set up 5 disc golf cages in the meadow for you to use while on site.
Disc Golf is free and discs are available to check out in the Welcome Center.
Our Prayer Labyrinth is part of an international registry of Labyrinths.

Geocaching is an any day, any time kind of adventure that can take you to amazing places. Developed by an Eagle Scout, Hollis has 3 hidden boxes for geocache enthusiasts. You may checkout the geocache navigational GPS unit from the Welcome Center for free.
