We only spent one night to celebrate our anniversary, and wished we had booked for a longer stay! We had the Chapel room facing the Chesapeake Bay. The room was very clean, the bed was oh so comfortable, and we even had a desk and table and chairs along with a lounge chair, which I promptly faced toward the bay.... More

We have been vacationing here for 27 years because we've found it to be the best vacation ever. Once you arrive, no need to get in your car until the day you leave. I love the water aerobics opportunity in the pool each morning - the exercise, the sunrise, the music are such a great combination. Food options are perfect,... More

I went for the Power Boost Weekend. No speakers, but still so many wonderful things to do and absolute gorgeous views. I spent the weekend alone. Relaxing, enjoying the views and the wholesome food served buffet style. My room was clean, no television, but free WIFI signal. The staff is friendly, always smiling, and loves the Lord. There was a... More

Our family enjoyed returning to Sandy Cove after being away for over 8 years. The speakers are still wonderful and ours was very personal and opened new insights for me. There are many action packed things to do like parasailing, riding on a pontoon boat on the Chesapeake and having fun in a zorb. We also enjoyed the Big nerf... More

This summer was the 13th year in a row that we made our way from Pittsburgh to Sandy Cove. We talk about it all year long. My wife sends me a count-down roughly 4 months ahead. The conference center is nice and the programming is perfect for families. We find it a perfect place to relax, reflect and re-connect.

Our family recently returned from family camp at Sandy Cove. We were not sure what to expect, but were blown away by this hidden gem of Christian family ministry. So many of the staff work tirelessly behind the scenes in order to make this retreat center run so seamlessly. Every attitude we encountered was encouraging and positive. The location on... More

I can't say enough good things about Family Camp. We walked away physically and spiritually refreshed. The speakers were amazing, the food was really good (not the lackluster camp food I was expecting), the organization and administration was top-notch, and the activities would kill you if you tried to do them all. We went swimming, painted pottery, ran a 1.5... More

Your sentence, "We came home with a renewed sense of direction for our family and a commitment to love each other more unconditionally," is the best review you could give Sandy Cove. Thank you! Welcome to the family - see you next year! More

200 gorgeous acres on the head of the Chesapeake is just the beginning of your experience. There are more fun things to do than you'll have time or energy for. But most of all, the good Lord speaks at Sandy Cove.
