For the fifth consecutive year, Family HEART Camp West Virginia comes to Abram's Creek Campground in Elk Garden, West Virginia, located off Route 50 less than three hours away from Washington, D.C.

Offering multiple camp sites along a creek, it also hosts 12 rustic cabins and a few indoor rooms in a large common house. Community meals are catered, supported by community and shared outdoor in "Rumi's Field" under canopies.

The venue also offers green space for play and large circles, a large and a small dome for offerings, and a fire pit for community gatherings and our annual marshmallow roasting night.

Situated along the banks of a small river with nearly 3/4 of a mile of waterfront, the property is characterized by massive boulders for sunning and relaxing, a deep covered forest, as well as cascading waters, waterfalls, rapids and deep pools for swimming and tubing.
