The overall goal for each program is to combine Christian education and recreation or (re-creation) in an outdoor setting as a platform to introduce campers to a broad range of experiences; helping all participants better understand and live into Christian community. In many ways camp is a “Sacred Playground” for everyone who participates in our programs. Presiding Bishop Michael Curry spoke about camping programs thus, “Camp is a space that gives “context” to our theology”.
During each of our camp sessions, campers and staff receive space to experience and reflect on what it means to know and love God and God’s creation.
To do this work we have five areas of focus that frame our Program Goals:
Be a lifelong servant of God
While Camp Marshall offers a wide variety of activities, our primary goal for campers is that each gains a clearer understanding of the core values connected with the baptismal covenant.
This work is never done. We strive to promote all to be lifelong sojourners with God.
