Welcome to the online presence of


Retreat Center and Summer Camp!


Dogwood Acres is the outdoor ministry of the Presbytery of Florida.  Our mission is to provide a retreat environment in which individuals and groups can grow in faith, enjoy wholesome recreation, and nurture Christian fellowship in a natural and unspoiled part of creation.




Dogwood Acres (DWA) is a retreat center and summer camp located about 40 miles north of Panama City in the center of the Florida panhandle.  A ministry of the Presbytery of Florida, DWA welcomes people of all traditions -- both religious and secular -- to its 450-plus acres of forest, streams, lakes, and trails.  

Our year-round ministry serves groups that range from 20 to 100 people.  We offer a variety of outdoor activities for people of all ages, facilities for meetings and conferences, climate-controlled cabins and lodge, delicious meals in our full-service dining hall, and opportunities to learn, play, and relax. For the five weeks of our summer camp, we serve youth who range in age from 7 to 18 years old.
