Retreats & Events


Camp Piankatank, perched on 90 acres above the beautiful Piankatank River, has a lot to offer visitors. Located in Hartfield, Virginia (just a few miles from the Chesapeake Bay). We have a total of 182 guest beds.

Pictures do not nearly do our property justice. It is truly beautiful and a perfect setting for small and large group retreats. Please come out and visit us. We are always happy to give tours!

Here a guest can enjoy scenic beauty and stillness not found in every-day life. The grounds offer an outdoor worship area, large recreational fields, a ropes course, a sandy beachfront, wildlife viewing, fishing and more. The very best thing is the views and access to the beautiful and serene Piankatank River!

In comparison to other facilities, our camp layout is very convenient. No big hills to walk up/down, large open spaces, and buildings close together, maximizing the time your group gets to spend together.

We pride ourselves on our ability to be flexible when working with guests. Our facilities are clean and our prices very reasonable!

Lodging and Facilities

Lodges – We have three lodges: Harrow Lodge, Gray Lodge and Ukrop Lodge.

Built in 2010, with new and clean being keywords to describe the lodges. These are identical and located centrally to each other. Each one can sleep up to 36 people, separated into two large sleeping rooms and two counselor rooms. Counselor rooms let youth group chaperones have a little more privacy and comfort. A large living room area with kitchenette (fridge and microwave only) provides space to come together for fellowship. The living room space of the lodges is often used as a meeting space for smaller groups, by easily adding a projector and chairs. Large bathrooms with instant hot water heats (no one gets a cold shower), with air conditioning and heat, make guests feel comfortable year round.

Cabins – We have four cabins. Cabins are named after countries: Taiwan, Tanzania, Kenya and Portugal.

Each cabin has a bunk room and counselor room, for a total of 16 beds in each cabin. The large porch on each cabin lets you get close to nature. A bathroom is in each cabin. These are air-conditioned and heated for year-round comfort.

Leader Lodge – This four bedroom, three bathroom “house” provides a little more privacy and comfort for your group’s leaders or speakers. Large windows and two porches give serene views of the beautiful Piankatank River. The living room space has a fireplace and a television (the only on campus with internet streaming or DVD viewing). A total of 10-11 can sleep comfortably here. Bring your K-cups to enjoy the exclusive Keurig coffee maker in this lodge.
