Brethren Woods

About Brethren Woods

Brethren Woods is a year-round camp and retreat center owned and operated by the Shenandoah District of the Church of the Brethren. We are located in the beautiful Shenandoah Valley of Virginia, just 12 miles northeast of Harrisonburg.

Throughout the year, we host groups using our Challenge Course and Rental Facilities. During the summer months, coed day and resident Summer Camp programs are held for all ages. In the fall and spring, Outdoor School field trips bring elementary students for day-long outdoor education opportunities. We also feature a variety of Special Events and programs for women, men, parent-child pairs, and more!

In all that we do, we seek "to provide Christian educational opportunities, facilities, and programs for all ages in an inviting woodland setting; encouraging the formation of Christ-centered living, leadership, and stewardship of creation, leading toward wholeness in the kingdom of God."

“I enjoyed working in an active outdoor environment while being a role model and a leader. As well as getting to work with a very tight-knit group of co-workers who became very close friends of mine. The job is also very rewarding and provides lots of growth experience.”
