Hear From Past Visitors

  • My 11-year daughter had the time of her life at the Kaleidoscope camp! At first, we were a little concerned because she would be with other campers older than her (up to age 13) and we weren’t sure what to expect She was very shy the first day and after I dropped her off I wondered if she would be included with the other older girls in her cabin I was reassured that she had a great time when she came home and said that she had made 9 new friends and that she couldn’t wait to go back next year She told me about the delicious food they served (which made me feel bad that I don’t provide hot meals every morning!) and the wonderful activities like the pool and zipline She loved their hilarious camp skits that taught her lessons and she really loved the canoeing/kayaking The staff, including Josh, was always very helpful, including taking personal texts from me during the camp week We really appreciate the WCRC providing awesome activities that are truly fun for youth and also lead them closer to God!

The Beautiful Grounds of WCRC

WCRC has 300 peaceful wooded acres on the Tidewater Peninsula in Southeastern Virginia and offers on of the best school trip destinations 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 herons 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. So if you’re looking for a winter retreat in Virginia, you’re in the right place.
