Claggett is always looking for more ways to reach every corner of our community, and make our programming accessible to people of all backgrounds and ages. Now, we are looking to reach our younger generation of participants with the new under 40 discount for adult retreats. Young adults can receive $50 off our weekend retreats, and $100 off week-long retreats. We look forward to connecting more with adults of all ages!

Family Camp 2024
June 30, 2024 - July 3, 2024

Spend time together splashing in the pool, flying down the zipline, and growing together with family-based faith formation. Families of all shapes, sizes, and ages are welcome; children must be accompanied by an adult. 

This year’s theme is Outcasts and Underdogs! We have all felt left out or undervalued at some point in our lives. This year we are looking at characters from the bible who have been ostracized or underestimated, how they dealt with that, and how we can be a community that invites in. In a world where it can be easy to feel alone, we will be working on how we can better connect with ourselves and those around us. 

Powell Hall and cottages - First two campers (of any age) $900, each additional camper $125
Christiane Inn - First two campers (of any age) $1250, each additional camper $125

Special Challenge Camp 2024
July 21, 2024 - July 25, 2024

Claggett Center offers a five-day, four-night summer camp program for adults ages 21+ with intellectual disabilities. This unique program provides campers and opportunity to forge new friendships, grow spiritually, learn new skills, and have a relaxing vacation. Claggett Center facilities provide shared sleeping rooms and bathrooms, most with air-conditioning, hearty home-cooked meals, and 268 acres of land overlooking Sugarloaf Mountain to enjoy. Everyone looks forward to coming to Claggett each year!

Staffed by volunteers, Special Challenge Camp is for adults 21 and older. While the staff does not offer one-on-one supervision, there is group oversight, and plenty of activities to appeal to a wide-range of tastes and abilities. Activities include arts and crafts, swimming, fishing, canoeing, nature hikes, a trip to the ropes course, campfire, daily chapel, bead working, woodworking, a talent show, and a "formal" dance with a DJ.
