Burnamwood Camp and Conference Center is a 500-acre stretch of land nestled between the foothills of Central Appalachia and the Kentucky Bluegrass. Established in 1958, Burnamwood began as a cooperative venture of three Presbyterian groups in Eastern and Central Kentucky. Now, it is the official camp and conference center of the Presbytery of Transylvania, a 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization.
During the summer, Burnamwood hosts residential summer camps for 1st grade students through 12th grade students. Additionally, it hosts youth and adult groups from around the nation in the Burnamwood Appalachian Ministry (BAM) during the months of June and July. Throughout the year, Burnamwood provides weekend retreats for youth as well as rental opportunities.We believe strongly in the value of camping ministry, recognizing it as vital to the faith development of all people – children, youth, and adults.
