The Phoebe Needles Center offers lodging, dining and recreational facilities for summer camps, retreats, conferences, workshops, quiet days and meetings to church, government, school, youth, college and private groups.

Our 85 acre facility is located near Roanoke, Virginia, and in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains. We are minutes from the Blue Ridge Parkway.

SUMMER CAMP programs run during July and August. Camps are open to all rising fifth through twelfth graders. Programs include backpacking, canoeing, climbing, rappelling, arts and crafts, swimming, hiking, environmental activities and more.

SPIRITUAL FORMATION conferences and retreats are scheduled at least quarterly. Topics have ranged from “Christianity and Islam” to “A Journey Through the Old Testament.” Most retreats are held on weekends, and allow time for walking, journalism and meditation. Outside speakers facilitate the programs.

CENTER FOR LIFELONG LEARNING @ PHOEBE NEEDLES is a series of educational seminars for senior adults. Programs are scheduled in the morning followed by lunch at noon. This year round series is a great opportunity for learning and fellowship in a beautiful setting.
