    Gretna Glen is a Christian Camp and Retreat Center located just east of Hershey amidst the beautiful forest and streams of Mt. Gretna, PA. Come and experience Gretna Glen for yourself. This home away from home creates opportunities to make memories, explore in nature while growing to know yourself and the community you are here with in bolder ways.  

    The tradition of summer camp at Gretna Glen has deep roots as we celebrate 55 years of programming this summer. 200 acres of scenic hills and woodlands are ideal for day and overnight camp. The opportunities for children & youth to explore nature, develop friendships, broaden their experiences and embrace their faith journey at Gretna Glen are never-ending. Be assured that the safety of Gretna Glen summer campers and guests is something we take seriously.

    In order to provide a Safe Sanctuary, we carefully select staff members and volunteers through an application process that requires references, background checks, and child abuse clearances. Staff and Volunteers are trained before working with campers. Our campsite is accredited by the American Camp Association. To earn accreditation, Gretna Glen complies with more than 300 health, safety and program quality standards. We are also members of the Christian Camp and Conference Association.
