DTP Overview



DTP stands for Discipleship Training Program. At Camp Maranatha, we strive to train campers to become disciples of Christ. Our goal is for students to leave DTP encouraged and strengthened to serve as leaders of the faith in the church. After evaluating the camper program and observing the kind of growth taking place in previous years, we brainstormed ideas on how to enhance the program and take it up a notch, so it would have a long-lasting impact. God led us to develop a 12-day camper program called DTP. What makes DTP different from the Main Camp program is it goes deeper! The program offers a longer camp experience, which inevitably leads to further personal growth and development in Christ.

Discipleship Training Program


DTP is composed of 6 stages, all of which are crucial in the transformational process that happens during the program. The stages include: personal and team initiatives for 2.5 days; a camping trip for 2.5 days; main camp for 2 days; serving preparation for 1 day; serving for 3 days; commissioning for 1 day. All campers are placed into gender appropriate cabin groups with other campers their age and are led by our trained staff members.  This program is a great opportunity for campers to dig deeper and build lasting relationships, all while having a blast at the same time!

Mission Statement


2017 Theme Verse:

"If you are insulted because you bear the name of Christ, you will be blessed, for the glorious Spirit of God rests upon you. If you suffer, however, it must not be for murder, stealing, making trouble, or prying into other people’s affairs. But it is no shame to suffer for being a Christian. Praise God for the privilege of being called by his name!" -1 Peter 4:14-16
