Campfires, hikes in the woods, canoe trips down the creek, Bible study lessons, Late night cabin laughs
The joys of summer camp are memories that last forever. They can also have an eternal impact on the life of a Project Purpose student.
What is Camp Manatawny?
A Christian Summer Camp located in Berks County where youth in elementary, middle and high school experience an atmosphere of caring and acceptance at every turn, learning to live, work, play, laugh and worship together in Christian community.
Camp allows children to experience Jesus outside the home and church, offering a special experience with our trained staff to see the love of Christ. Experiencing Jesus outside the home helps the development of your child’s personal and spiritual beliefs.
Campy Manatawny offers Elementary, Middle, and High School over night camp weeks. Children stay at camp for a week, living in a cabin with Christian counselors and other children. They participate in all the joys of overnight summer camp!
