Welcome to CCCA's Carolinas/Virginias Section website. The Carolinas/Virginias Section is made up of CCCA member camps from the great states of North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia and West Virginia. On this site, you'll find:

  • The Section Members tab provides a list of all CCCA member camps in the Carolinas/Virginias Section. Find out where member camps are located, then drill down to additional information about these great camps.
  • On the Section Leadership tab, you'll find information regarding the leadership of both the Southeast Region (of which we are a part) and local section leadership.
  • Visit the Section News and Events tab for details about upcoming events in our section, our region as well as training events and the annual conference hosted by CCCA.
  • The Sectional Conference tab provides details about our annual sectional where local Christian camps come together for two to three days of worship, fellowship, networking and fun. If you are not a part of CCCA, no problem. You can still attend. Check out the Sectional Conference tab for more information.
  • Finally, the Section Connection tab provides members with various resources, including links to various ways to communicate within — and outside of — our section.

On behalf of CCCA and the Carolinas/Virginias Section, thanks for visiting, and we hope to see you at one of our member camps and conferences soon!

2019 Carolinas/Virginias Open House

Open House at Camp Piankatank in hartfield, VA

Monday, September 9, 2019.

You are invited to the annual Carolinas/Virginias Open House on Monday, September 9th! Our host this year is Camp Piankatank in Hartfield, VA. 

The Open House and tour will start at 10:00 am, followed by lunch and some recreation activities that are unique to Camp Piankatank. Some of the options available will be the ropes course, canoeing out to Berkley Island on the Piankatank River, and even perhaps some fun on a catamaran!


Camp Piankatank is offering bunk bed lodging for those who would like to come in on Sunday evening or stay Monday evening. If you would like to attend, please email Steve Gourley to RSVP for the Open House and/or for lodging. You can call them at 804-776-9552 or email  

Open House has been not only a fun way to see other camp properties, but a great time to connect with other camp professionals after a busy summer. We hope to see you there!

If you need to spend the night on Sunday night, you are welcome to do that!  You will need to provide your own linens. Breakfast will not be provided.
