Makemie Woods is a Christian Summer Camp and Retreat Center providing a beautiful outdoor setting where children and adults can gather, play, pray and learn, encouraging one another in the name of Jesus Christ. A ministry of the Presbytery of Eastern Virginia of the Presbyterian Church (USA), Makemie Woods welcomes campers from diverse backgrounds and retreat groups, schools and organizations seeking to better our world.
Makemie Woods also offers programming to help you make the most of your retreat experience--consider adding a flight on the ziplines, boating, archery or seeing the stars through the Brinton Observatory.
Makemie Woods offers a great summer camping program for kids entering first grade through Sr Hi. Campers enjoy new adventures in a radically accepting Christian community, surrounded by nature. Many parents and campers continue to tell us about how their lives have been affected and changed by the camp experience. FYI: The Summer Camp program (NOT including Camp Jordan) is on hiatus for the 2015 season. That's it. Contrary to some rumors, Makemie Woods is not closing nor are we in the process of closing. So not to worry.
Our online registration program greatly enhances and streamlines the process, reducing postage costs and wasted paper. Returning campers are able to register quickly with just a few clicks, and first-timers have an easier means of selecting programs that meet their schedules.
