Valley Haven Summer Camps:
- In 2022 Valley Haven will sponsor 5 camp sessions and a total of 120 young people (grades 5-12) to attend a life changing week of Gospel-centered, adventure camp.
- All campers who attend receive full sponsorship for the week of camp. Campers who attend Valley Haven Summer Camps come from under-served backgrounds. This simply means that due to life circumstances, they are both in need of special investment AND unlikely to receive that investment without sponsorship.
- Children are selected for sponsorships through camp partnerships with community resources.
- We believe that the Lord has strategically placed us in the Catawba Valley area and therefore, we seek to identify children in need of sponsorship in this area.
- All campers receive a week at camp full of great food, memorable games and adventure activities, bonding with local peers, investment from local camp counselors, and above all they hear the life changing news of the Gospel.
- Valley Haven, in partnership with generous financial support from many local businesses, churches and donors throughout our community, provides full scholarships for every young person who attends this week long camp. We believe this is one of the most important investments that our community could possibly make - pouring the Gospel into the lives of local youth that they might trust Jesus Christ in every area of their lives.

Each of our campers will lodge in one of our cabins. We have 2 separate, large cabins - one for boys and one for girls. Each cabin has two floors, two bathrooms and a total of 30 bunks. Each cabin has a total of 4 private showers with changing stalls for our campers as well. All facilities are heated and cooled and include a walk out deck that overlooks Camp Creek.
Valley Haven Camp and Retreat Center is located on 175 acres of gorgeous mountainous land on the outskirts of Hickory. We prioritize relationship building activities and offer tons of options for your group to play, build community and enjoy Jesus together!
The heart of Valley Haven Summer Camps is to pour the good news of the Gospel of Jesus into the hearts of young people in the Catawba Valley area.
