Romans 5:5 (NAS)

"And hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out within our hearts through the Holy Spirit who was given to us."

There is hope!

I love this verse. Hope does not disappoint. That means as long as we have hope, we don't need to be discouraged. God is the source of our hope because he has filled us with the Holy Spirit! That is a reassuring thought, especially when it seems to us that hope is scarce. The reality is that the Holy Spirit keeps filling, so we can keep hoping!!

When I think about Denton Wesleyan Camp, I have lots of hope! I hope that this ministry that has been in existence since 1898 can continue and grow until the hope of the Lord's return is realized! I hope that many more people will come to know Jesus Christ at our camp and many will be called into his service. I hope that individuals will be equipped and trained to go out into the world to make disciples. I hope that you have this same hope!

Hope with us!

The Camp Board has been working very hard over the last several months to take a look at each aspect of the camp: facilities, finances, marketing, promotion, community partnerships, and of course the overall direction of the ministry. You can help by praying for wisdom and direction as we work towards the great future of Denton Camp. Here's an update on who is serving on the board at this time so you can pray specifically:
Marilyn Searcey, President and representative for Chesapeake Kids Camp
Doug Morley, Vice President
Bill Arnold, Treasurer
Dan Jones, voting member
Kathi Bridwell, voting member and Cottage Owner Representative
Scott Conn, voting member
Holly Sorrells, voting member and Family Camp Director

We pray that you and yours experience the joy of celebrating the birth of our Savior this Christmas and as you ring in the New Year the Holy Spirit will renew your HOPE!

P.S. Stay tuned for upcoming dates for a Spring Fling and Banquet! Also, please let us know if you'd like to participate in a work day to accomplish some projects on the grounds. You can connect through the website, or email us at

We hoped to have a website…

We've been hoping that some day we would have a great website, so . . . .

It is with great joy that we announce the launch of!
This site will not only enable more communication about what is happening on our beautiful grounds, but it will be a great tool to introduce individuals, groups, and churches to the ministries of Denton Camp. We hope you find the site to be user friendly.

There are some areas that are still under construction, so keep checking back to see how it develops. A huge thank you goes to Holly and Ben Sorrells for designing the website and new logo.
