Feast of Tabernacles 2017
Join Mercy Collective for the 2017 Feast of Tabernacles (Sukkot) at Valley View Camp. Located just minutes north of Nashville in Greenbriar, Tennessee, this private campground features a beautiful lake, a year-round creek, wooded hiking trails, recreation fields and courts, a group assembly hall, commercial kitchen, fire pits, pavilions, a game house, a zip-line course, archery range, rustic accommodations, and much more.
Our Feast of Tabernacles celebration will begin on Wednesday, October 4. The Feast will conclude on Wednesday, October 11. During the weekend, October 6-8, we will enjoy a larger, more-structured gathering complete with three group meals, worship services, Bible studies, and special programs for the children. The following group meals will be provided:
- Dinner Friday night
- Brunch Saturday
- Dinner Saturday
Additionally, throughout the week, we will feature group potluck dinners, Sukkah-building, food trucks, activities, Bible studies, campfires, and cook-offs. Come prepared to celebrate and share the blessings of our Lord!
On Sunday, October 8, attendees will have the opportunity to participate in an incredible zip-line course, which winds its way through the woods, down the hills and over the lake. Attendees will need to register for the zip-line courses on-site. There will be an additional charge per-person for this optional activity.
The property features a number of rustic cabins. These cabins include bunk beds, electricity, air-conditioning, and little else. (Think of them as glorified tents.) Families will be given priority for the cabins. Additionally, individual men, women, and teens will be able to share group accommodations in gender-segregated cabins. Note: The cabin areas are not considered to be "handicap accessible."
Tent and RV/camper camping is also available. There is no limit to the number of tents that may be erected on the property. The campground does not feature RV/camper hookups, but a limited number of outlets may be able to provide 110v electricity on a first-come, first-served basis.
The camp features newly renovated male and female bathhouses (with private shower stalls) and coin-operated washing machines. Other restroom facilities are located throughout the property.

All registrations are non-refundable and offered on a first-come, first-served basis. Registration will close on or before Yom Kippur, Friday, September 29.
To help facilitate the Feast and to better serve one another, all teen and able adult attendees will be expected to serve the camp in minor volunteer roles throughout their stay. Such responsibilities will be designated on-site, as needed, and may include things such as trash collection, kitchen help, etc. It's important for us to come to the Feast with a spirit of generosity and service.
All behavior during the camp should be in accordance with the norms at Mercy. Biblically clean food and clean behavior are expected. Illegal, unsafe, and generally annoying activities, including drug use, forest fires, 3 a.m. shofar blowing competitions, and general mayhem, will be strictly prohibited. Mercy Collective reserves the right to revoke admission at will, if necessary.
