Horizons’ Getaways

Get Away, Then let us take care of the rest!

Located just 2 hours from Washington DC and Richmond, Camp Horizons is the perfect weekend getaway. Come enjoy the beauty of The Shenandoah Valley as you reconnect with nature and your family and friends. Horizons’ Getaways include flexible activity schedules, fresh cooked meals, and an individual cabin rental. This season we are excited to offer 2 unique Getaway weekends which are open to all ages!

Upcoming Horizons’ Getaways:

Registration for Horizons’ Family Camp Getaway and Horizons’ Fall Getaway is closed. Check back to see what we have planned for 2022! 

 

We heard your feedback– Check-out on Sunday is later, giving you an additional half day of activities and a pack-out lunch when it is time to hit the road!

Activities will be limited to ~16 people per activity period to allow for social distancing and individual equipment use. Activity periods rotate throughout the day, so you’ll have an opportunity to try everything at least once. Finally, we wrap up each day with a fun and unique Evening Program, leaving you free after that for a village campfire or stargazing.

Spaces for each Getaway are limited, so we encourage you to make your reservation today!

Cabin Lodging

Unplug and reconnect with nature as you getaway to your very own cabin in the woods! All Horizons’ Getaways will use cabins in our Starlight village, and each group will be housed in an individual cabin. Starlight lodging includes 6 bunkbeds, restroom, and shower. Cabins in this village share porches as well as a communal campfire circle.  Standard cabin rentals are assigned, and we will not be honoring cabin requests.

Groups are expected to bring their own bed and bath linens.

Food + Beverage

A getaway is meant to be stress free—let us handle the cooking! Chef Rob and the fantastic dining team will be serving elevated versions of your camp favorites. You can see the full menu by day below. If you have any dietary restrictions or food allergies, please make sure they are noted on your registration form. Most needs can be met, but please call us if you have any specific questions!

To ensure the safety of our guests we’ve implemented some changes to our dining policies for the Spring Getaways:

  • While we normally eat buffet style, all meals will be done family style to minimize movement around in the dining halls. Your group will be assigned a table of your own for the duration of your stay
  • Tables at the dining hall will be spread out to ensure proper distancing
  • All of our dining staff will wear masks or face shields and gloves while preparing and serving food

Families are permitted to bring their own food and drinks. The Swap Shop will also be stocked with more snack items than normal, so if you’re missing anything we’ve got you covered. As you are packing for your stay we do ask that you keep a few things in mind:

  • As we are a nut-aware camp, please do not bring any food that contains nuts.
  • Because of our location in the woods, we recommend that any food you bring stays in a plastic container.
  • Alcohol is allowed; however, we ask that beverages are not in any glass containers. Please be conscious of alcohol use. Alcohol is not permitted in activity areas
