Camps as Machen begin this month! For a start, Science Camp is July 12-17 and Stronghold Camp is August 2-7. We are incredibly blessed by and thankful for the efforts made by the organizers, teachers, and volunteers to ensure that these events can happen this year.

A few weeks ago, Retreat Operating Committee (ROC) member, Jake Hughes led a group of volunteers in readying Machen for the upcoming camp and conference season.
Additionally, the ROC will be meeting July 24th up at the retreat center. Please pray for this group or men and women as they discuss Machen’s future and enjoy good fellowship amid the peace and beauty of Highland County.
These are just a few examples of how this ministry continues to be supported by dedicated men and women who dedicate themselves to the events at Machen Retreat.

Even if you aren’t able to make it to one of our camps or conferences, the ROC encourages you to use the Machen facilities for family camping trips, church retreats, and more! See the calendar ( to sign up for a weekend (or week!) and email Director Bennett Wethered with questions or for more information.
We hope to see you there!
