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.
In the past Makemie Woods has offered a great summer camp experience. Sadly, times change and what parents and kids want or need for summer camp activities changed. For the short term we will be opening the summer months and we will accept retreat and conference group reservations. At the same time we will be looking into restructuring our summer camp program with the desire to resume it in a modified form. As this effort develops and announcements merited, you will see the news here and via email and social media.
