Welcome to Gasper River Catholic Youth Camp & Retreat Center.
We are a ministry of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Owensboro. Our 168 acre facility is located on the Gasper River just 8 miles Northwest of Bowling Green. Although we are owned and operated by the Catholic Church of Western Kentucky, the facility is available to all denominations, schools, families and business groups.
Our goal is to bring people here, have them learn and grow in their faith and then take what they have learned back to their communities to put into practice. We will strive to follow St. Benedict’s Rule that “all will be welcomed as Christ.” If you have any questions about our facility or if there is any way that our staff can assist you in your needs, please contact us by phone at (270)-781-2466 or by email at
