  • Your Cooperative Missions Offerings are being used to help support:

    A summer camp on the Piankatank River, where 60 children accepted Christ last year

    Camp Piankatank Retreat Center, where you can host your next church retreat

    Camp Piankatank offers activities such as a climbing wall, high and low ropes courses, archery, canoeing/kayaking, sailing, and much more all in a Christ-centered environment.

    Campers ages 6-17 can choose to be a part of the traditional summer camp track (Amazing Adventure), or they can choose one of our great specialty tracks (Sailing, True North, Fishing, Horse-back Riding, etc.). Counselor to camper ratio is kept low (max 1:8, often lower) so that children are well cared for. All staff go through extensive interview training processes, and are selected to be strong, Christian role models. All counselors and program staff are at least college-age, and have been out of high school for at least one year (age 18 and above). The environment and activities encourage physical, spiritual, social, and emotional growth in all campers.

    Located on the beautiful Piankatank River in Middlesex County, VA , Camp Piankatank offers a number of activities and a place to “get away” for retreats and meetings. It houses over 180 beds in dormitory-style lodging and it offers a variety of food choices.

    For more information, visit www.camppiankatank.com or call 804-776-9552.
