“We really enjoyed our time at Camp Sandy Cove. The facilities are fun and engaging and the staff is flexible and friendly. Our teens had a great time that they won’t soon forget!”
Eddy Barnes, Youth Pastor, Grace Covenant Church, Chantilly, VA
“In my 20 years of full time ministry I’ve worked with several camps and retreat centers. Working with Camp Sandy Cove and Tim Nielsen has been the best and easiest experience. They have the same Kingdom goals – to see Christ honored and the gospel furthered. Other organizations have been looking to be paid; Camp Sandy Cove looks to serve. The 187 acre campus is well set up to allow an organization to have an excellent trip…from the zip line, trapeze, gaga, air rifle, archery and mountain boards, to the dual-meeting rooms, rustic cabins and dining hall, this place is set up for success!”
