The Park

First Landing State Park is located in Virginia Beach, Virginia. The 2,888 acre park is bordered by the Chesapeake Bay and features a number of different terrains and environments including a beach, wooded areas, and marshes. The park features a visitor center, a tent camping area, cabins, picnic shelters, hiking and biking trails, swimming at the beach, and other amenities.


We are camping this year!

Campsites are on the beach side of the park.  Each campsite includes a fire pit / grill and a picnic table.  Two tents and two cars are allowed per campsite.  Some campsites have water and electrical hookups. There are several public restrooms with showers with hot and cold running water throughout the park.

We are offering individual tent spaces to our attendees for half the price of a full campsite.  You would be sharing the campsite (not your tent) with another retreat attendee. Tent spaces are an add-on option on our registration page and must be reserved by the end of our pre-registration deadline. If you would rather have an entire campsite to yourself or if you miss our pre-registration deadline, you are welcome to reserve a campsite directly from First Landing State Park or by calling (800) 933-PARK.  Please be aware that if you reserve your campsite through First Landing, you may or may not be camping near the Brotherhood by the Bog main camp.

Camping is not required to attend the retreat.  Day trippers are welcome.  Out of town folks who don't want to camp are welcome to reserve their own cabin in the park or stay in a nearby hotel.
