Group and Family Retreats

Come To Camp Maranatha

Jesus demonstrates the importance of finding rest for our soul, as he often “withdrew” to be alone with the Father (Luke 5:16). At Camp Maranatha, we believe you and your group have the opportunity to come and seek God, find rest, and become restored. The camp offers a place for families, churches, and schools to come and seek rest that is away from the busyness of life. While here, our staff invest in each group by assisting any and all their needs during the stay.

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
