Looking for the ideal place to hold your next conference or retreat? Consider Summit Grove Camps | Conferences | Retreats located on 43 beautiful acres in New Freedom, PA. It's a great place to hold your church retreat (use our open air tabernacle), family retreat or corporate event. Whatever your desires, the beautiful surroundings of Summit Grove offers lodging for all seasons, conference rooms, recreational activities, and food services for breakfast, lunch and dinner.


It's a peaceful place with lots of recreational opportunities. Recreational activities include a swimming pool, frisbee golf course, wiffle ball stadium, basketball, volleyball and a firepit for campfires. Local activites include The Northern Central & York County Heritage Trail that runs from the small community of Ashland, Maryland north for 20 miles to the Mason-Dixon Line. It then enters Pennsylvania and becomes the York County Heritage. Which continues another 21 miles north to York, PA. Including the newly opened 10 mile section between York and Hanover Junction.

In addition to the Heritage trails there's the Steam Into History train ride within walking distance of Summit Grove in downtown New Freedom. The William H. Simpson #17 is a faithful replica of the Civil War steam locomotive that carried Abraham Lincoln to deliver his now famous Gettysburg Address. These same tracks carried Lincoln's funeral train two years later. You can ride the newly built 1860s replica steam locomotive with the newly built coaches. The Glen Rock runs are one hour long, the Hanover Junction rides are two and a half hours long.
