Thank you.

    Dear Family and Friends of Camp Sandy Cove,

    It is with sadness that we write to inform you that Camp Sandy Cove in West Virginia will be permanently closed effective October 1st, 2018.

    After 2 years of discernment and prayerful consideration of options for our West Virginia based ministry, the Sandy Cove Board of Trustees ultimately recognized several indicators that Camp Sandy Cove was not sustainable and reluctantly made this decision.

    Camp Sandy Cove has impacted the lives of thousands of youth in multiple locations since 1950. The legacy of the camp will live on in the lives of those campers, and the many staff and volunteers who gave unreservedly of their gifts and time over the past 69 years. We are forever grateful to the Nielsen family, who for multiple generations has tended to the ministry of Camp Sandy Cove through their passionate leadership and care.

    The Maryland Campus of Sandy Cove Ministries, including the Chesapeake Lodge, The Marsh Day Camp for youth, and seasonal campgrounds will continue to serve our guests.

    We are thankful for members of our community such as you. Your continued support is vital to our ability to help people connect with God and each other in order to be transformed into the image of Christ, through His Word, His creation, and community.

    Thank you for your prayers during this time of ministry transition.
