Let Fork Union Host Your Next Event

Facility Rentals

Our 1,100-acre campus situated in Central Virginia's serene evergreen Piedmont region is perfectly suited to host your next retreat, conference, church youth camp/event, training workshop, sports camp, homeschool class/event, wedding or family reunion.

On campus, you'll find an impressive array of classroom and labs dining, and sports facilities (indoor and outdoor fields and courts, indoor swimming pool). You’ll also find various locations to enjoy some fun including our Pruitt Lake Pavilion where you can enjoy a picnic or spend an afternoon fishing, and our student social center which offers ping-pong, arcade games, a movie theater, and more.

Organizations can elect the level of support provided by FUMA, such as technology, meals, different levels of facilities access, and the like. Events can be overnight (with lodging in air conditioned rooms available in Jacobson Hall) or day events only.

We have hosted events as diverse as community leadership training workshops for local governments, the University of Virginia's summer lacrosse camp, the East Coast Summer Synchronized Swimming camp, week-long summer conferences for civic organizations, overnight church youth events, and much more.
