Family Camps

Take a family vacation with a purpose!

Invest in your core relationships through one of our family camps. An intentional time where your whole family can step back from life’s busyness and reconnect with God and each other. We offer two engaging sessions each day to provide encouragement from the Word, a time of worship, and points of connection with your family. There are many activities to enjoy as a family, including: basketball, canoeing/kayaking, swimming, biking, hiking, playground, petting barn, archery, and more. Our family camps are marked by gospel centered teaching, good food, and lots of family fun.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • + What types of activities can we expect to participate in?

    There should be many family-friendly activities available, including: basketball, canoeing, kayaking, swimming, biking, walking trails, playground, animal petting barn, cornhole, archery, crafts, giant outdoor checkers and chess, etc. Other activities that may be available (weather and volunteer availability permitting): .22 riflery, skeet shooting, archery tag, etc.


  • + What are sessions like?

    During your week, we want you to be encouraged and interact with your family on a spiritual level, in addition to getting a chance to rest. So we offer two engaging sessions each day to provide teaching from the Word, a time of worship, and points of connection with your family. Sessions last about an hour each.

  • + Is there childcare during sessions?

    Depending on volunteer availability and the number of guest children, we do our best to provide childcare for children ages 0-4. Your children ages 5+ will sit in with you, but we have coloring/activity sheets for them, and the teaching times are family-friendly. 

  • + Do we need to bring any food?

    Nope! All meals and snacks are provided during your stay. Maranatha works hard to ensure that meals are both filling and kid friendly, with options that work for your family. 

  • + What if I have a family member with food allergies?

    Because Maranatha values keeping camp affordable, our allergy accommodations are limited. Our small kitchen is not equipped to prepare specialized food for allergies. Whenever possible, we offer main menu items that are gluten-friendly (items that are not made with gluten, but are made in the same kitchen as wheat/gluten may contain trace amounts) or accessible for various allergies (a protein without gluten or dairy, for example). Please make a note of allergies in your registration so we can plan quantities accurately. We do our best to label food that our guests are allergic to. 


    You’re welcome to bring your own supplemental food if you are on a specific diet or would like specific food (ready to eat or microwaveable). We have fridge space in the dining hall designated for this.


  • + What type of accommodations are available for family camp?

    There are a few types of housing styles available for family camp:

    • Summit West // Hotel-style guest room. Includes a full private bath, 1 queen bed, and 2 twin/cot bunks. Portable cot bunk available upon request (room capacity 6-8). 

    • Grace Cottage // While on camp property, this option is more remote and has its own driveway from the main road with trails that connect it to the main campus. The cottage overlooks Marsh Pond and includes a shared kitchen, living room, and rec room. Grace can comfortably house 2-3 families (depending on size) in its four guest rooms, each including a full bath, 1 queen bed, and 1-4 cot sized bunks (room capacity 6 to 10).

    • Bring an RV // The camp has three RV sites available. If you can claim one of those spots, we will give you a $25 per-person discount on your registration.

  • + What kind of housing is available?

    Guests stay in Summit West (hotel-style guest room with a private bath, 1 queen bed, and 2-3 twin/cot bunks). Portable cot bunk available upon request. Room capacity 6-9. You can opt to bring your own RV and receive a $25/per person discount. 

  • + Can we bring a friend?

    Because the purpose of family camp is to help your family connect with one another, we only allow immediate family members to attend together. Thanks for understanding.

  • + Is there a dress code?

    We desire to provide an atmosphere of modesty. While we have freedom in Christ in how we apply the principles of modesty, we ask that discretion and deference guide your clothing choices for camp. See our guidelines here.

    Casual clothing, swimsuits and towels, sweatshirts for chilly evenings, shoes for different activities, Bibles and notebooks, bedding (or sleeping bags), toiletries, bug spray, sunscreen. We have some bikes on property, but you’re welcome to bring your own (just don’t forget helmets!). If you need a pack-and-play (portacrib) for your baby, please bring that as well.


  • + Do we need to bring our own bedding?

    Yes. Each room has one queen and bunks, so please bring bedding/sleeping bags as desired. If you need a pack-and-play (portacrib) for your baby, please bring that as well.

  • + Can we come early?

    Your family is invited to come as early as 1pm on Monday, find your room, settle in, and enjoy some free time.

  • + Can we leave the property during the week?

    Of course! If you would like a family outing to visit a local attraction or get ice cream, the afternoons are the best time to do so. Ask us for a recommended list of local attractions if you’re looking for ideas.

    For the comfort and safety of others, please arrange to leave all pets at home. 

  • + Anything else we shouldn’t bring?
