About Us

    Camp Sandy Cove has a long history of offering exciting, life-changing programs for our campers. We offer many program elements that make us thrilling, distinct and effective. Most of all, Jesus is the focus of our program.

     

    Camp Sandy Cove is a non-profit, non-denominational, Christian camp for boys and girls between the ages of 7 and 15 - dedicated to sharing the message of salvation through Jesus Christ and to helping young people develop a relationship with their Creator. Located 30 minutes west of Winchester, Virginia, in the foothills of the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains of West Virginia, Camp Sandy Cove is proud of our tradition of offering "Christian camping at its best."

    Our accreditation by the American Camp Association (ACA) and our membership with the Christian Camp and Conference Association (CCCA) demonstrate our commitment to excellence. Camp Sandy Cove welcomes all children, regardless of race, religion or national origin.

    • The fall of man, his consequent moral depravity, and his need of regeneration
    • The atonement through the substitutionary death of Christ
    • The doctrine of justification by faith
    • The present ministry of the Holy Spirit, by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a holy life
    • The resurrection of the body, both in the case of the just and the unjust
