2018 Camp Logo2018 Summer Camping Ministry

OUR THEME: Beyond Belief!  The Universe of God

Summer Camp 2018 will give campers the opportunity to ponder BIG questions about God.  What if God was bigger than you ever imagined? What if hope was real?  What if you could change the world? Campers and conferees will explore how God can be seen in God’s vast creation.  The power of community will be experienced by those attending and they will discuss how God’s endless love sets in motion so many amazing adventures and how God has new mysteries to explore.  Campers will have opportunities for Bible Study, prayer, worship, singing, community building, games, challenges and explore God’s creation in the outdoors and have fun, too. Campers will be ready to share their faith in their church and community at the end of their camp experience.

Please note there is a sibling discount and another opportunity for a discount.

Send Mail to a Camper

"I Got Mail!!!!

The Outdoor Ministry Advisory Team (OMAT) has made this decision based on numerous factors, to not receive e-mail for campers.

Send U.S. Mail to your camper: campers got a kick out of “snail mail” each summer.

“Snail Mail” – It can be fun again! Many congregations have chosen in the past few years to send a care package with letters, notes, etc. to the campers from their church. The campers love getting mail of this kind. You will need to mail it several days earlier than the week camp begins. Individual letters may also be mailed   We ask that you not send snacks, candy or food.  Campers cannot have food or drinks(except water) in the cabins or in Woodland.

Camp Address is:

Camp Christian
Session: (for instance Jr. Camp I)
Campers Name
3735 Dennard Hardy Road
Gordon, GA 31031

The Objectives of our Camp and Conference Program

The Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) in Georgia believes that camp and conference provide an opportunity for children, youth, and adults to step away from their day-to-day routines and focus more intensely on their relationship with God, to experience Christian community, and to practice living out their spiritual values in a supportive atmosphere.

Camp Recreation Opportunities

There are numerous recreation possibilities at Camp: volleyball, soccer, basketball, football, kickball, softball, non-competitive games, badminton, croquet, ping pong, paddle boating, canoeing, fishing, swimming, hiking, crafts, table games. No one gets bored with so many opportunities to make new friends and share in Christian community.
