Welcome Home to Where Faith Meets the Mountains!

For over 50 years Aldersgate Camp & Retreat Center has been a place set apart that intentionally provides for the faith development of people of all ages in Christian community within the natural beauty of God's creation. We continue to welcome home a variety of individuals and organizations who seek to get away from the normal routine of life, experience God, build community with each other, and enjoy the beauty of creation. Located about an hour southeast of Lexington, Kentucky, nestled in the foothills of Appalachia, Aldersgate Camp & Retreat Center offers field trips, day retreats, and overnight options for individuals and groups year round and summer camp programming during June and July.
