“AKA "Pretty Place" due to it's stunning view”

Fred W. Symmes Chapel (also known as “Pretty Place” because of its amazing view) is one of the many buildings that make up YMCA Camp Greenville. It was given by Mr. Fred W. Symmes for the enjoyment of the boys and girls who camp here each summer and is the spiritual center of the camp.

The current chapel was constructed in 1941 with several additions and improvements made in subsequent years including major upgrades made in 2012.

The Chapel is located on private property owned by the YMCA Camp Greenville (a branch of the YMCA of Greenville, SC). Camp Greenville has been in existence since 1912 and covers 1400 acres. It is a year-round operation serving as a Summer Camp, Environmental Education Center, Group & Conference Center, and wedding venue.

Camp Greenville welcomes visitors to enjoy the beauty of the Chapel during daylight  – except when it is in use for a Camp event (Sunday and Monday morning worship services by campers or groups), or for another reserved event (weddings, dedications, memorial services, etc.). Typically the chapel is booked throughout the day on Saturday and Sunday. We strongly recommend calling the camp office to check the schedule prior to visiting to avoid conflicts with weddings or other privately scheduled events at Pretty Place. There are NO restroom facilities available from December 1 thru March 24.

Fees for use of the chapel help to maintain the area, as well as assist with camperships (scholarships to help provide experiences for children who might otherwise not be able to enjoy a camp experience due to some type of hardship). Donations are welcome.

Absolutely stunning. It's a bit of a drive up the mountain but so worth it. The view is incredible and the atmosphere is filled with love. The chapel isn't always open you need to call the hotline and find out what the schedule is. From the bottom of the Mitsubishi to the top is a 15 minute drive, you literally drive right into the parking lot. Park and enjoy the view. There are restrooms available.
