The Eastern PA Conference owns and operates four unique, scenic camp and retreat centers spread across different regions of the conference: Pocono Plateau in the upper Northeast; Carson-Simpson Farm just north of Philadelphia; Innabah, more centrally located in Spring City; and Gretna Glen in the Northwest area.

Camp & Retreat Ministries involves not only the quality management of these four remarkable sites, but also the diverse, enriching programs and dedicated staff and volunteers who truly define them as ministries. Each of these beautiful, blessed oases are what they rightly claim to be: "God's place apart, transforming lives."

All four centers truly come alive during Summer Camp, with hundreds of excited children and youth learning, playing, being nurtured and making friendships and lifetime memories. But three sites--Pocono Plateau, Innabah and Gretna Glen--are busy year-round, hosting retreats, picnics, confirmation classes and other special events of all kinds.

Our Camp & Retreat Ministry centers are places where people of all ages and backgrounds can experience God’s love and creation together in a caring Christian community, as they grow in relationship with Jesus Christ and one another. Contact them today to plan or register for an event. Visit their Web sites at: innabah.org, gretnaglen.org, poconoplateau.org and csfarm.org.

In addition, please support them and help more young people with limited resources to benefit from summer camp through Camper Scholarships.  With many families still struggling with economic difficulties, the need for scholarships is greater than ever.  Every child deserves a chance to be embraced by God’s love, as experienced in the caring, life-changing environment of summer camp. Please help us make this possible. Send your contributions to the Eastern PA Conference Treasurer and identify them as donations for Camper Scholarships. Thank you.

Reopened summer camps enjoy ‘homecoming’

We’re just weeks from the end of Summer Camp at our four Eastern PA Camp and Retreat Centers—which is too soon for many. This has been an historic season after last year’s heartbreaking cancelation. And the families, children and youth, camp staffs and counselors could not be more grateful for what many have enjoyed as “a homecoming.”

The adventures for all ages have included swimming and boating, creative games, archery and other sports, zip lining, rock climbing, music camp, getting up close and personal with animals and critters, roasting marshmallows at dusk, singing and laughing, discovering new talents and abilities, and of course, meeting new friends. And much, much more. Read More
