The Light Center is a 95 acre natural sanctuary nestled in a wooded valley amidst the farm land of Kansas. It offers a 30ft Pacific Yurt, a 12ft Pacific Yurt for campers, lots of remote, private space in the woods for respectful off-grid camping and a well rehabilitated 125 year old barn that offers a dormitory-style loft and private rooms. We offer all levels of camping from easy beginners to those that want to rough it in the wild. Our space serves as a spiritual retreat center and so we welcome peaceful camping for people with reverence for the land and all beings. We also have goats, chickens, guinea hens, dogs and cats. There is a large creek that winds throughout the land and goes up and down with rainfall, determining how easy the access will be to the backpacking acreage. The Light Center is a beacon lighting the way into a vibrant future. Harmonizing with the earth, inspiring personal, local and global connection. Providing safe space for spiritual growth and healing, and empowering youth. We are a retreat center, an organic sustainable farm, providing natural sacred spaces for hiking and camping, celebrations and ceremonies. Creating new paths into the future with open hearts

The Redtail Yurt
A hidden gem
Susan and the staff were exceptional. Warm and very welcoming. This is a magical treasure and a spiritual scared space. Lots to explore. A great spot to reflect and relax. Roughing it in reasonable comfort. If you want WiFi, a/c, etc don't expect it. The yurt was comfortable dry. We roughed it. Did not need the amenities of the barn. Wonderful and magic. Leave no trace. Harmony with nature

An outstanding place in the countryside with total darkness and clear stars at night, wind and crickets.
