Camp Idlewild is owned by Idlewild Christian Endeavors, Inc., a Virginia non-stock corporation with 501(c)(3) status.  It’s purpose is to provide Christian camping experiences for children and families, and it has been doing this for about 50 years.

The camp began because of the generous contribution of about 80 acres of farm and forest by the Menzel family of Surry County, Virginia in the early 1960′s.  The corporation formed to receive the grant and develop the property has a membership composed of individuals and congregations of Churches of Christ in eastern and central Virginia.
