History

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
The history of Camp ACCOVAC predates its present location in Millboro, VA.  As early as the 1940's it operated under the name "Camp Virginia" and was located behind the Central Advent Christian Church in Clifton Forge, VA
In 1969 the old Millboro Lumber Co. property was purchased and the grounds became present day Camp ACCOVAC.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
On the property was a large sawmill operation powered by steam engines. 
The community known as Hotchkiss, VA employed a large number of personnel and was comprised of several large buildings including housing for workers, a chapel and a commissary.  The old Hotchkiss Station on the C&O Railway marked the place where the lumber was loaded for shipping.  By the camp's present entrance you can still see the cutaways in the hillside and gravel on the ground where the old railroad bed used to be.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
A tradition of exalting Christ and ministering to thousands of youth has continued through the decades since those humble beginnings.  With your help and support those same values can continue and together we can see the all powerful gospel of Jesus Christ transform generations to come.
