The thing that really makes Sandy Cove special and unique is YOU! People come to Sandy Cove with many different needs and hopes in anticipation of a special time away with God and others and find what they are looking for here.
Sandy Cove Ministries is a year round Christian conference center in North East, Maryland. God has blessed Sandy Cove with an amazing 220 acres on the headwaters of the Chesapeake Bay…complete with gorgeous sunsets, eagles and ospreys! Visit Sandy Cove as a part of a group retreat, attend a Sandy Cove event or stay for a Personal Retreat.
Many churches and organizations host their own weekend and week-long group retreats and meetings in our hotel-style facility. We offer all-inclusive packages – lodging, all-you-can-eat buffet meals, meeting rooms and activities. Planning a small staff retreat, attending a national conference or having a family reunion? We can accommodate rental groups up to 1000 or more! On any given weekend retreat guests come from New York City, Philadelphia, Lancaster, Baltimore, Washington DC, Richmond and everywhere in between! For groups looking for a central meeting location, they fly in from all over the U.S. Philadelphia and Baltimore airports are just an hour away.
Sandy Cove programs special events throughout the year. We offer many women's events, couples getaways, pastors and ministry leaders’ sabbaticals, a men's weekend retreat and seniors programs. Summer Family Camp is all about worshipping with other families on vacation…you’ll find great speakers, fun activities for all ages, time to relax and time to play! The Marsh is our Christian summer day camp for kids.
Personal Retreats are a way to treat yourself at your own pace as you take the time to talk to God. A Personal Retreat is a Bed & Breakfast stay – Sandy Cove style!
“There's no place like this place on the face of the earth! I always feel connected with God and my brothers and sisters in Christ. The Bay is magical! Watching the sunrise and set upon the waters is glorying! The food, service and hospitality are first class all the way! The Prayer Room concept is so intimate and helps you to connect with God in a practical way! I just love Sandy Cove!” – Helene, Darby, Pennsylvania
