Our Location in the Scenic Adirondack Mountains

The Shoshanah Campus is a Conference, Retreat and Bible Study facility for believers in Jesus the Messiah, located on over 580  acres in the beautiful northern Adirondack mountains of  New York State. Our property stretches from a secluded lake to the top of a mountain! It is situated at an altitude of 877 feet in a scenic region near the Adirondack High Peaks and the AuSable River Valley. We're on lovely "Trout Pond", where we have a private, sandy bathing beach. Photos immediately below, and at page bottom, a list of local attractions. Scenic areas around us include:
