Sandy Cove Ministries is an all-inclusive, year-round Christian retreat center located on the headwaters of the Chesapeake Bay in North East, Maryland. 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. Visit Sandy Cove as a part of a group retreat, attend a Sandy Cove event or stay for a Midweek or Weekend Getaway!

We invite you to join us for one of our programmed events. We host women's events, couples getaways, men's weekend retreats, ministry leader sabbaticals, seniors programs, summer family camp, and more. Stay overnight in our lodge or at one of our campgrounds.

Many churches and organizations host their own group retreats and meetings in our hotel-style facility. We offer packages that include lodging, all-you-can-eat buffet meals, meeting rooms, and recreational activities. Plan a small staff retreat, medium-sized family reunion, or a large national conference - we can accommodate from 30 to 1,000 guests. 

The Marsh is our summer day camp for kids. From fun activities to creative adventures, Bible teaching to unique games, campers have a blast while growing in their relationship with Christ. 

Learn about our overnight summer camp, Camp Sandy Cove, in West Virginia. It offers solid Christian programming for children and youth.
