As a way to give back to those who sacrifice so much to help make our community better and safer, Camp Maranatha is hosting their 2nd annual Military and First Responder Free Family Day! All active duty military families, gold star families, and first responder families are invited to come out and enjoy a day on the lake, play some classic camp games, and enjoy a cookout in their honor.
This free event will allow families to share the joy of canoeing, kayaking, taking on our high-ropes course, and more… just to say thanks for the critical role they play in our community!
What Makes Camp Maranatha Special
For over 50 years, Maranatha has operated as a locally owned and operated camp, offering a top notch
summer camp experience for four generations of happy campers. The beautiful facility on Lake Guntersville
offers an exciting mix of lake- and pool-based water- activities, high-ropes elements, a zip line, giant
swing, and a phenomenal staff that guide and mentor your camper through a week they probably won’t
stop talking about until the next time you send them.
Building on those early foundations from 50 years ago, Maranatha ultimately expanded to 118 acres, constructed new facilities, and enhanced access to the lake with the construction of a sea wall and dock. Camp Maranatha expanded its vision as well, becoming a favorite refuge to people of all walks, economic situations, and cultures as a means to enjoy nature and use it to deepen their relationship with God. Now, Maranatha offers awesome, affordable overnight and day camp options for North Alabama campers. Camper parents love our convenient daily bus transportation from Huntsville and Madison, and campers love the outdoor adventure, new friends, and fun that they’ll remember for years to come!
With both Day and Overnight camp options, your child can experience camp in a way that aligns with them developmentally while you enjoy the convenience of daily camp bus transportation to and from Huntsville and Madison.
