Camps and Retreats

The New Church offers a number of annual camps and retreats designed to bring people together in an environment which stimulates spiritual growth and learning.

Camps range from those geared toward families, to teen groups, to elders. While many of them take place in Bryn Athyn, Pennsylvania, others are scattered around the US, and some are located in Canada and the UK.

Each event places the Lord at its center, but the focus is different depending on which camp you attend. Some are doctrinal and others target areas like relationships, teen issues, or general life skills. All incorporate fun, relaxation, and social interaction as key components of the experience.

"Divine Providence has as its end in view a person's eternal salvation, thus not their great happiness in the world, not - that is to say - wealthiness and eminence which people during their lifetime think real happiness consists in."
