Fred W. Symmes Chapel aka “Pretty Place”
The Fred W. Symmes Chapel, affectionately known as “Pretty Place” for its breathtaking views, is a timeless gift generously bestowed by Mr. Fred W. Symmes for the delight of the boys and girls attending YMCA Camp Greenville each summer. Serving as the spiritual heart of the camp, this cherished sanctuary holds a special place in the hearts of all who have had the privilege of visiting.
When you choose Pretty Place as the venue for your wedding ceremony, you and your guests will be treated to a stunning panoramic view of South Carolina’s Upstate, creating a truly unique and unforgettable outdoor wedding experience.
