Summit Grove Camp & Conference Center has a 223+ year history of people coming together to encounter the Lord’s presence and to enjoy the beauty of His creation. Our 43-acre property is nestled in a grove at the highest point of land located halfway between Baltimore, MD and Harrisburg, PA. Known for its huge open pavilion (Tabernacle), Summit Grove has hosted thousands of people over hundreds of years, and has been a central meeting ground for camps, retreats, conferences and events.
The history of Summit Grove spans centuries and includes countless stories that demonstrate God’s faithfulness, providence, and glory. Since its roots in the Second Great Awakening, to its decades of camp meetings attracting thousands, to its rich history involving circuit riders, the Underground Railroad, and countless retreats, camps, and events – the thread that weaves all of these stories together is that Summit Grove is a place for people to encounter God, connect with others, and enjoy life.
