With our top-notch resort amenities and suite-style guest rooms, your attendees will be begging you to bring them to the most luxurious resort on the lake. But, as a planner, you know it’s about more than just where you rest your head at night. Read on to learn all about Meetings & Events at Camden.
Groups of Any Size
Flexible Meeting Space
Our resort complex features over 19,000 feet of flexible meeting space. That means there are a variety of ways you can utilize the meeting space. Whether you’d like to plan a two-day corporate retreat for your top fifteen salespeople or a weeklong conference with meals, activities, and classes culminating in an awards ceremony and plated dinner for 200, we can turn your vision into reality. The Sales and Banquet Team at Camden will help you plan your event of any size from the first spark to final realization.
From Small to Large
We have several meeting rooms of varying sizes and styles to choose from and your specially-assigned Convention Services Manager will guide you in choosing the right room or rooms for your event by group theme, activities, and size. For example, the Theatre Room, with its stadium-style seating and a large projected screen is perfect not only for a Movie Night event but for classes and lectures where you can utilize the large screen for demonstration purposes.
On the first floor of the resort is the lake view Grand Ballroom which can be converted into three separate meeting rooms when needed. The Lakeside Room has large garage doors that can be opened up to the lakeside boardwalk for an open-air feel. If you’re looking for a smaller room to have a team breakout or a board meeting, the Camden Conference Room provides nicely, whereas the Harbor Ballroom, with its bars and dance floor, is the ultimate setting for an evening reception.
Palate Pleasing Menus
After you’ve chosen the right meeting space for your event, your Convention Services Manager will assist in planning out your group’s meals and special activities. You’ll be able to create a fully satisfying event with our catering menu. From breakfast, lunch, dinner, drinks, and breaks, plated or buffet, you are sure to find a winning combination of meals and snacks for any size group. Have a specific theme in mind? Our culinary team is happy to create a custom menu that works within your group size and budget.
Parties & Receptions
If you’re planning an event or conference that involves more than food, let us help you plan a bar into your party or reception. You can choose from different options such as whether it will be a hosted bar or a cash bar. We can set up bars in any of the meeting rooms as well as on the boardwalk, where your guests can marvel at the beauty of the lake and at your superior planning skills.
