Crestfield is a camp and a conference center located on 226 acres of rolling Western Pennsylvania. It is just 1 hour away from Pittsburgh. Crestfield is serving over 155 Presbyterian Churches at this point of time. They also provide retreating facilities and conferencing facilities to the Groups of their Presbyteries, in addition to those groups who are from other organizations and locations. They have been providing retreats to middle schools and high schools for many years and they have recently decided to merge both the middle school and high school retreats. In addition to that, the new retreats have also been built.
There are a few retreats for the younger children that are going to take place in the Crestfield Camp and Conference Center like:
Spring Tweener Retreat
It is all about the International Bible study and worship. Everything, from meals to transportation facilities, is arranged by them and you can easily spend your day in here.
This retreat is pretty similar to the Spring Quilting Retreat where you get to spend a day in the countryside with a session of the International Bible study. Interesting, isn't it?
This is an all women exclusive retreat, where all the women can gather together and have some community time with some great food and there are also community services to take part in.
As the name suggests, this retreat is for the bikers. It is starting from 19 August. You can expect a lot of riding, food and some really nice time.
This outdoor camp can be your once in a lifetime experience, exploring Crestfield in the night. The camp is beautifully laid out in the woods where you can sit along with your friends by the bonfire. And the best part is that you get to stay up for late nights and sleep late in the morning. You get to sleep in Teepees and watch as the beautiful night unfolds. They also provide a chuck wagon to hold all the dishes and the food for your comfort.
Love Sailing? Do you want to learn sailing? This camp gives you the opportunity. You can learn sailing from the professionals every day during your time at this camp. In addition to this, you can explore different areas of Christian faith and make some new friends as well. After spending the day sailing at the lake, you and your group will be involved in other outdoor activities that Crestfield has to offer to the campers. The best part of all this is that you do not need to have any prior experience of camping before attending this camp.
8 days of fun! No one can resist that. Grab your group of friends and set out on this amazing adventure to Crestfield. You can go camping and set up outdoor tents, cook your food and look at the beautiful Crestfield while sitting around a bonfire. Go enjoy some boating in the nearby lake! You are also taught many new skills like paddle skills, cooking outdoors, knot tying, orienteering and so much more. This is all done in addition to the community service and bible sessions. This will be your perfect summer plan.
The mission statement of the Crestfield Camps and Conference Centers is “Crestfield Camps and Conference Centers provide facilities and opportunities for people to come away to the Christian-centric community for recreation, reflection, rejuvenation and rejoicing.” The experience at Crestfield does not only teach you a lot of things while having fun, but also brings you closer to God and his Disciples.
