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.

My husband and I went to Sandy Cove for our first time on a personal retreat. We stayed one night, and had a wonderful experience. Our room was large and clean.

I love the fact that the drone of mordern life is not pervasive in this place. No televisions, loud radios, sirens, loud machinery, etc..., to interupt your comtemplations. Silence is golden!! However, the sounds of nature abound and nature is all around. Peacefulness is easy in this place.

You can tell the moment you drive into Sandy Cove Road that God is there, and He is going to meet you there, if you are willing. So with a companion like that, what's not to like? This is not a review of a particular experience. I have attended many events at Sandy Cove over a period of 15 years.... More

You cannot find views much better than at Sandy Cove. I have been coming here for about 6 years with my church for Ladies Retreat. The facilities are terrific, and very useful for our purposes. Rooms are available in all sizes--suites, or 2-5 person rooms help everyone get a price they need.
