The Prayer Lookout provides a setting that makes it easy to listen to God. The purpose of the Prayer Lookout is to provide a quiet location for prayer, Christian meditation, personal Bible Study, and private relationship building with the Lord.


Surrounded by nature with a sensational view of the Pacific Ocean, the Prayer Lookout has been designed for an overnight stay for one or two guests.


Sleeping amenities include a day bed with a trundle bed, sheets, blankets and pillows. The facility is also equipped with a restroom and kitchenette, including a microwave, toaster oven, refrigerator, cooking utensils, dishes, table, and chairs. Showers are available at our Central Restroom facility.


This building was given to Twin Rocks Friends Camp as a memorial to Peggy Cadd. She was involved over many years as a camper, counselor, staff, and board member. She is remembered as a person of diligent prayer.

“I want you to know how very much I enjoyed staying at the Prayer Lookout. It was a privilege and I am very thankful. This was the best time alone that I’ve ever had with the Lord. I came here for solitude and rest away from the rush of life. I came away with more than I could have imagined: peace, healing, and refreshment. God met me here! What a sacred place this is! Again, thank you.”

“Then, because so many people were coming and going that they did not even have a chance to eat, He said to them, ‘Come with me by yourselves to a quiet place and get some rest.” Mark 6:31
