Welcome to Hemlock Wilderness Brigade Camp!facebook

We are a Christian overnight camp focusing on teaching the love of Christ through the wilderness of God's Creation!

During most of the summer Camp Hemlock is the home of HEMLOCK WILDERNESS BRIGADE CAMP (HWBC), the CSB regional summer camp for boys ages 6-18. Then for 2 weeks Camp Hemlock hosts a girls summer camp called CAMP WILDFLOWERS, serving girls who have finished grades 3-12. Additionally, CAMP WILDFLOWERS provides a mini week for Dad & Daughters grades 1-3. Please feel free to watch this video showing a day in the life at Camp Hemlock.

The purpose of HWBC is to use God's created environment to teach children, young men and young women self-reliance, leadership, and outdoor skills, while highlighting the practical truths of God's Word.

Wilderness Setting

The camp is located adjacent to the George Washington National Forest. The area is teeming with wildlife in a rustic, natural setting.

Comfortable Facilities

A main lodge, large group game room, rustic cabins, modern bathhouse, swimming pool, athletic field, archery/rifle range, fully equipped kitchen, dining hall are all utilized to meet camper needs.

Outdoor Oriented Programs

The staff uses God’s created environment to teach reliance on God, leadership, and camping skills, highlighting the practical truths of God’s Word.

Hemlock is a relatively small camp where your child receives the individual, God-centered attention that he or she needs. We hope that you will become part of our camping family, too. We invite you to explore the Hemlock website to learn more about our camp.

HWBC is a ministry of the Capital Region branch of CSB Ministries, Inc.  CSB is a non-denominational club ministry that meets weekly around the world to earn awards, learn skills, enjoy wholesome fun with other boys, under the mentoring of Godly men. If your camper would like to get involved with a local CSB (Christian Service Brigade) unit, please contact: Arden Musselman for information on finding the nearest CSB program in your area.

Camp Hemlock is available for retreat rental in the spring and fall for any type of Christian group looking for a great, convenient facility to hold their event. Contact Joanne Curran, for information and pricing at 240-643-2981 or by email at GodDoesThings@CampHemlock.org
