Our Gathering Location for 2017

Reserved Dates: 15, 16, 17 September, 2017

We, the Men of The Leadership Council, are excited and pleased to announced the selection of Camp 5 in the Prince William Forest Park (in our Nation’s National Park system) near Triangle, Virginia as the setting of our 2017 Chesapeake Men’s Gathering! We have confirmed reservations from the National Park Service for this beautiful campground.

About the Cabin Camps

Cabin Camp 5 was the last camp to be completed by the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) and Works Progress Administration (WPA). The camp offers the largest capacity (212 in summer, 104 in winter) due to the large dorm buildings and bathrooms. This is also the only camp with heat which allows this camp to be rented year round. This is also the only camp to have an outdoor picnic pavilion located inside the camp.

Four of the five cabin camps in Prince William Forest Park are listed on the National Register of Hisoric Places. Each camp is composed of group of wood, stone, and brick structures constructed by the CCC and WPA workers of the Great Depression. The camps were built as summer camps that the government hoped would instill the poor children of Washington, DC with the ‘character and health-building’ benefits of the great outdoors. In World War II, the camps were used by the Office of Strategic Services as a spy training area.
