The Refuge Summer Camp

The Refuge Story

It’s often been said that through much prayer the greatest ministries emerge. Well, we can’t speak for other ministries, but The Refuge is a direct result of more than a decade of prayer from believers all across the eastern, NC region. So much could be said about how God has had His hand in building The Refuge, but for now we want to focus on how God united believers through prayer to build a place of Refuge in eastern North Carolina, for His glory.

The Refuge mission is to share and model the hope of Jesus Christ. We do this with our property, programs and people as we serve churches, youth groups, businesses, school groups and any organizations.

My kids had an amazing experience here and wished they could go every weekend!

This is a hidden gem, full of treasures that will last for eternity! The staff are very friendly and qualified! The Refuge is an amazing place for all ages and teams!

Our church just completed day 1 of camp at The Refuge and it is awesome! The staff is wonderful, the setting is gorgeous and the kids had a blast. The staff kept them busy, moving and entertained all day. They make the Word come alive and present it in ways that make it fun for the kids and easy to understand. Very well organized and thoughtfully planned!
