The Gretna Glen Experience

The tradition of summer camp at Gretna Glen has deep roots as we celebrate 61 years of programming this summer. 200 acres of scenic hills and woodlands are ideal for day and overnight camp. The opportunities for children & youth to explore nature, develop friendships, broaden their experiences and embrace their faith journey at Gretna Glen are never-ending.

Be assured that the safety of Gretna Glen summer campers and guests is something we take seriously. In order to provide a “Safe Sanctuary,” we carefully select staff members and volunteers through an application process that requires references, background checks, and child abuse clearances. Staff and Volunteers are trained before working with campers.

Our site is accredited by the American Camp Association. To earn accreditation, Gretna Glen complies with more than 300 health, safety and program quality standards. We are also members of the Christian Camp and Conference Association.

Our goals for your camper while they are here:

Seek God’s guidance in their lives
Experience a healthy Christian community
Reach for new adventures
Value themselves and the world around them
Experience age appropriate responsibilities
