Camps / RetreatsNot For Profit
The United Methodist Church has long supported Outdoor Ministry and specifically, Christian Camping. In 1966, Westview on the James was founded in order to offer a “place apart” where children can experience and grow deeper with God. In this busy, often stressful world, Christian camps offer children a sacred space in the natural world where they can encounter God, enjoy Christian hospitality and community, nurture their faith and discipleship, and learn creation care and appreciation. Oh, and have lots of fun! Leaving behind their normal routines and distractions, Westview campers can enjoy water sliding, zip lining, canoeing, kayaking, swimming, biking, hiking, music, crafts, a new bouldering wall and high ropes course, worship, and more!
A fully-accredited member of the American Camp Association, Westview on the James continues to meet or exceed the summer camping industry’s standards for safe operation, employing best practices to maintain a summer camp program of the highest quality.
Beautifully located on 780 acres of rolling hills and fields, including an 18-acre lake and 1 mile of riverfront, in Goochland, Virginia, Westview on the James is easily accessible from I-64. Westview on the James is an ideal location for summer camp, retreats, gatherings, and special events.
