Our team is here to take all of the planning and coordinating off of your shoulders. From family-friendly activities to quiet time spent in nature, WCRC has a wide variety for everyone.

Unlike many Williamsburg hotels, our family retreat facility is safe and secluded with lots of space to run and play. And we’re only 20 minutes from Busch Gardens and Colonial Williamsburg if your family is looking to explore the area.

During the Christmas season, enjoy our Christmas Around the Campfire event, visit Yorktown Lighted Boat Parade, or stop by Colonial Williamsburg’s Grand Illumination. In the springtime, enjoy our Family Fun Day, spend the day at Busch Gardens, or explore Colonial Williamsburg, Jamestown, and Yorktown.

Our family-friendly adventure activities (like the Zip Line, Tree Climb, and Super Swing) are sure to be that thing the whole family talk about on the way home. Our tractor-drawn hayride meanders over our 300-acre facility and creates an atmosphere for your family to connect and enjoy nature. Archery and Team Building Games add a bit of friendly competition and community-building that you just can’t create back home.

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.
