Unforgettable Experiences - Faith, Education, Renewal

All are welcome here. You are welcome here.

Serving our communities since 1957, we are a year-round retreat center with eight weeks of summer camp. Our main property is in beautiful Fort Valley VA and we operate an adult retreat center in Strasburg VA.

We invite you to be part of our Christ-like community!


We share a welcoming, prayerful, playful space - a simple environment, disconnected from the distractions of technology and the world. 

We lead and teach based on Lutheran theology, but we welcome those of any belief (and no belief, too).

We provide opportunities for outdoor, experiential education in a historically and ecologically significant setting.

We believe in the power of experiential education, in learning from your surroundings, in stepping outside your comfort zone.


We have a lot to explore at Caroline Furnace!


We offer our facilities, programs and staff to any group seeking to build community with one another. 

Caroline Furnace is a place to encounter God in God's creation, and we are committed to remaining a special place

"set apart".
