Camp Kirkwood - A Beloved Topsail Presbyterian Tradition

Each Summer the children and youth of TPC have the opportunity to trade our sand, salt and sea for 5 days of being immersed in the beautifully lush, green countryside of Watha, NC. Just 24 miles from our church steps set in rural Pender County, Camp Kirkwood offers 195 acres of God’s natural beauty for the children to spend their days exploring nature and enjoying adventures with old and new friends. 

For over 51 years this incredible camp experience has welcomed children and youth to explore and enjoy the sights and sounds of nature while building character, developing self-confidence, making friends and growing in their faith. Each day offers a new adventure as they follow the shaded trails to swimming, zip lining, canoeing, kayaking, paddle boarding, archery, music, worship, crafts and more!
