Camps & Retreat Centers of the Charis Fellowship
The Charis Fellowship has six camps or retreat centers which are sponsored, owned, or hosted by regional districts or churches. While the main goal for many is ministering to kids and teens, these facilities also provide space for Charis groups to gather. Through scheduled programming and maintaining facilities, these camps offer opportunities for evangelism, discipleship, and training.
Camp Albryoca has been hosting campers for more than 50 years. It offers athletic fields, an indoor heated swimming pool, fire pit, chapel, dining hall, shower houses, and cabins. Three weeks of the summer the Allegheny District churches utilize the facilities, otherwise they are available to be rented by church groups, organizations, and families.
Northern Atlantic District
Located in Lancaster County, Pa., Camp Conquest serves the Northern Atlantic District. The camp can offers horseback riding, target sports, swimming, hiking, and campfires. Camp Conquest offers week-long day and overnight camps for children and youth 7–15 as well as weekend retreats. The facilities are available to rent the entire year.

Blue Ridge District
Camp Tuk-a-Way began in the mid 1960s on a piece of donated land.
