We encourage families to drive their children to camp each summer. This allows parents to meet our staff and see the facility. However, there are a few other ways for your child to arrive.
Shuttle Bus: Camp Sandy Cove offers a shuttle service for those who live closer to our conference center in North East, Maryland. Round trip transportation will be provided for a fee of $45 from Sandy Cove Ministries in North East, Maryland (for directions to Sandy Cove Ministries click here) to Camp Sandy Cove in High View, West Virginia and back. Shuttle service runs on Sundays only. A reservation is required for each shuttle bus passenger. Please contact our Registrar for times, fees and to make a reservation.
Plane: Dulles International Airport is approximately 2 hours from Camp Sandy Cove. Transportation to and from the Airport is provided for $45 per person for campers arriving by plane.
Campers enrolled in our traditional camp program are housed in cabins. Each cabin is equipped with twin and/or bunk beds, electricity, bathrooms, and shower facilities. Most cabins accommodate 10 campers and 2 staff. Check out photos.

The different Units at camp may have different daily schedules. Please contact the Registrar before registering in order to discuss your options.
