Pilgrim Firs is a year-round conference center located on the Kitsap Peninsula of western Washington. Surrounding Lake Flora, this quiet, forested, location is just minutes from the town of Port Orchard and Seattle ferries.
Pilgrim Firs is a peaceful friendly place. At Pilgrim Firs you can enjoy such activities as swimming, canoeing, fishing, hiking or field games. Experience walking through the woods or around the lake, toast marshmallows around a campfire, dance in the lodge or meditate at either the outdoor or indoor chapels overlooking the lake. Wake up in the morning to the songs of the birds can stargaze on a clear night and end your day falling to sleep to the sounds of a gentle wind throught the trees and the softly croaking frogs.
Pilgrim Firs provides a natural environment that encourages life in community, fosters respect and gratitude for God's Creation and nurtures spiritual growth and renewal through a Ministry of Hospitality.
