Camp Bethel is Botetourt County's first and best Summer Camp and Event Center. Camp Bethel is the outdoor ministry of the Virlina District Church of the Brethren. We exist to foster and build relationships with God, each other, and the natural world, TOGETHER. We live this ministry through our summer camps, our services, and availability of our facilities to people of all denominations and backgrounds. Our summer camps are accredited by the American Camp Association, and we offer hundreds of activities and muscle/gravity-powered adventures. Camp Bethel is open all year for conferences, retreats, festivals, school groups, outdoor education, and other family, church and community events. Our facilities are a mix of modern rustic-elegant cottages, lodges, meeting rooms and event spaces.
