The Beautiful Grounds of WCRC

WCRC has 300 peaceful wooded acres on the Tidewater Peninsula in Southeastern Virginia and offers the best family retreats in the area.

It’s a peaceful oasis with canopied forests for hiking and open fields for games and gatherings. Beavers, deer, wild turkeys, and blue heron call WCRC home, allowing guests to experience God’s creation in all its splendor. 

It’s close enough to be convenient – minutes off I-64, an hour from Virginia Beach and Richmond – yet far enough to get away – it’s a place where you can still see the stars at night. If you’re looking for Christian family retreats in Virginia, you’re in the right place.
