Makemie Woods Camp and Retreat Center provides 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 guests from diverse backgrounds and retreat groups, schools and organizations seeking to better our world.
For many years, Makemie Woods offered a great summer camp experience. Sadly, times change and what parents and kids want or need for summer camp activities has changed. For most of 2016 we will be open for retreat groups and events, and our only summer camp option will be Camp Jordan for diabetic children. 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.

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.
