Prompt registration is really essential due to uncertainties and opening camp requires a lot of advanced planning. Thank you for getting your registration in as soon as possible.

We can't wait to see you this summer for a few days of fun and faith. We will spend time making new friends and worshipping God through music, crafts, prayer, and nature. Camp Emmaus is a wonderful sanctuary that fosters peace, love, and understanding and we are so excited for you to join us.

2022's theme is "Creation Speaks," and we will explore different methods of prayer, such as art and music,

Campers stay in cabins overnight and have access to our swimming pool and other recreation equipment. There's a craft cabin for being creative, trails for hiking and a lake for fishing. Directors and counselors plan a schedule full of activities. Our kitchen staff can accomodate campers' dietary needs and a nurse is on site during the duration of camp.

Many life long friendships have started with time spent at Camp Emmaus.
