Camp Carmel
  

Camp Carmel is located in Linville, N.C.  It is in the Southeastern Distict of the Church of the Brethren.  The SED consists of 40 churches located in North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia and Alabama.  Camp Carmel is very near Grandfather Mountain, the Blue Ridge Parkway, Linville Gorge, Linville Falls and many other natural attractions.  Linville Gorge is the deepest gorge east of the Mississippi  and camp is within an hour of Mt. Mitchell, the highest peak east of the Mississippi. Camp Carmel is nestled in the heart of the mountains at 3,750 feet above sea level which enables it to  be"air conditioned " by nature in the summer. The Linville River runs through camp and provides great trout fishing as well as polar bear swimming. 

Camp Carmel has summer camps starting in June and ending in early August for ages 5 through adult   Throughout the rest of the year, it is used for retreats, family reunions, church get aways, school groups and occasionally a wedding.  We are staffed with mostly volunteers. There is a special camp for Motorcycle enthusiasts too.

No camper is ever turned away because of lack of funds. The Southeastern District provides scholarships for anyone who can not afford the cost to come to camp.  Also, most of our district Churches pay at least part of the registration fee.
