We did not know what to expect when we crossed the Greenbrier River on the barge and arrived at Camp Alleghany. What we found was a community of warm, friendly people, breathtaking scenery, outdoor adventures, and time to really be with family. There is no sweeter sound than Taps at the end of a full day. Even though we have no connection to Camp Alleghany, my husband, grandchildren and I all feel like ‘Ghany Campers. Thank you!”
NOTE: Though we expect to be fully open next summer, if covid restrictions prohibit it, we would instead run the Family Retreats program that we held during summer 2020 during the same dates listed below.
What Family Camp Is Like
You’ll come for the fun, fellowship, and relaxation and leave refreshed, renewed, and invigorated for the seasons ahead!
Would you like to take an affordable family vacation to the beautiful mountains of West Virginia? Situated in beautiful Greenbrier County, it’s a place where families enjoy outdoor living at its finest. Take a break from our fast-paced society and come to the peaceful banks of the Greenbrier River. Enjoy quality time with your family participating in our many activities or just kicking back and enjoying each others’ company.
Three delicious meals a day are cooked and served in our Dining Hall by our expert kitchen staff.
All activities are offered daily (weather providing); make your own schedule! You decide how much or how little you want to participate in. Choose any or all activities including: swimming, canoeing, rifle, archery, arts & crafts, hiking, campfires, roasting s’mores, watching fireworks, spending quality family time, and more.
We’re also just minutes by car from hip and bustling downtown Lewisburg and the stately Greenbrier Resort. Guests are free to choose to spend a morning shopping or sight-seeing in town, or walking/biking on the Greenbrier River Trail.
Read our complete information packet for full schedule and details.
At the time of registration you’ll be responsible for the $100.00 non-refundable deposit. The remainder of your balance is due August 1; you will receive an email in early July with your invoice. If you would like to pay earlier or have payment questions, please email us.
