    This place and the staff are a hidden wedding venue gem! Kali and her staff were amazing to work with. She flawlessly executed a three day wedding weekend: rehearsal dinner, ceremony, cocktail hour, reception, and post wedding day brunch. We also had almost 100 guests staying at camp Friday to Sunday. They set up/took down everything for each event and handled all the vendors, which allowed us and our families to really enjoy spending time together celebrating. All of our guests loved everything. I can’t thank Kali and camp pioneer enough for such a memorable and enjoyable weekend.

    The most perfect day!

    Pioneer Camp and Retreat Center was so beautiful. The wedding planner left a few months before our wedding and Kali took over. She was so sweet and accommodating with everything! The entire staff was pleasant and so helpful. None of our family and friends have ever been there, it was a hidden gem ! People still come up to me and tell me that they cannot believe how beautiful it was! Anyone that sees our pictures is amazed! The ceremony in the chapel in the woods, to the cocktail hour above the water and then the reception at Wendt Hall! It was the most perfect day. I loved having Kali and Noelle helping throughout! I would recommend this venue to everyone! Dream come true! Thank you to everyone that made it the best day of our lives!!
