    It’s time for the annual pilgrimage to Simpson Park Camp, and the time-honored tradition celebrates its 153rd year this summer. When the Israelites made their way to Jerusalem each year for the feasts, they often traveled in groups, sang and worshiped together all the way to the holy city. While you may not be coming in droves on foot with camels in tow, you CAN come with shouts of praise! Reconnect with other faithful pilgrims; come experience a sense of God’s presence that quiets the mind and spirit, and brings joy to the heart. Take a look. Come for ten days of fellowship and inspiration, or come for one day or a weekend!

    New this year – Introducing a theme for Annual Camp Meeting.
    Our theme this year: “Fear Not: Daring To Live Boldly” Scripture: “So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.” Isaiah 41:10 (NIV)
    One Week – Three Camps
    Alongside Family Camp, Youth Camp is for grades 7 – 12, beginning on Sunday, July 29 – Sunday, August 5. It’s a week of instruction in practical Christianity, worship services for inspiration and Christian commitment, Wellspring Praise band, recreational programs, personal sharing, and informal contact experiences with other youth who share Christian values and commitment.
    Over 100 children participate in our annual Children’s Program which runs simultaneously alongside Family Camp, from Saturday evening, July 28 – Saturday morning, August 4. Services and activities are offered during morning and evening worship, as well as special activities each weekday afternoon for the family, such as a Luau and fishing at the pond. The Children’s Camp presents their program in the Tabernacle on Friday evening, August 4th for all to enjoy. A parent or guardian must be present on the grounds while children participate in the Children’s Camp Program.
