Burnamwood Appalachian Ministry

Burnamwood Camp and Conference Center, has resided in the mountains of Eastern Kentucky for nearly 60 years.  With that many years comes a lot of history, a lot of memories, and a lot of tradition.  In 2010, Burnamwood began a new tradition – the Burnamwood Appalachian Ministry.  During the summer months of June and July, Burnamwood opens a three story lodge nestled into the side of a mountain to groups from across the country for short-term mission trips.

The groups will stay on site at Burnamwood.  During the day, these groups will venture out each day into Central Appalachia to take the love of Burnamwood beyond the boundaries of the camp.  Our full-time Summer Mission Directors will arrange all work sites and even provide food for all of the meals (the cooking is up to you though!).  This is a hassle-free mission trip for youth directors and a chance for participants to open their eyes to extreme poverty in America.

Accommodations: Provided!

A beautiful three story home nestled into the side of a mountain. An additional lodge will be provided for larger groups.
