Whether its pepperoni pizza for a school or camp group, or salmon and pork tenderloin for an adult retreat, virtually every meal is accompanied by fresh fruit, warm baked goods, and scrumptious desserts.

Lance Moody - Facility Director
Earliest days spent with muskrats, mummichogs, sticklebacks, herring gulls, least terns and migrating rafts of brant's geese. Wearing adult waders as a boy of 10 to walk the sucking goos of deep detrital mud and then out into winds and tides where waves play chase til crashing onto the glacial outwash of the northeastern littoral. And now walking and rolling AZ's central highlands, where accreted arcs and ancient subductions hide ophiolites and reveal aeolian dunes a thousand feet high; feeling what it feels like to feel rocks remembering.

Leslie Glenn - Receptionist
Leslie is the friendly voice on the other end of the telephone when you contact Chapel Rock. In addition to serving as our receptionist, Leslie is also our summer and winter camp registrar. She’s the first person to talk to about camp availability, forms, or any other questions.
