The Church of the Brethren has a strong tradition of Outdoor Ministries (church camps) dating back almost 100 years. Currently the Church of the Brethren operates 26 camps across the United States, two of which reside in the West Marva District: Camp Galilee (Terra Alta, WV) and Camp Hope (Belington, WV). Together, all of these camps make the Outdoor Ministries Association.

West Marva District oversees the operations of both camps. The District Conference elects a Board of Trustees for each camp to manage the camps. Each Board of Trustees hires a Camp Manager (Administrator) to oversee the day to day operations and management of the camps.
