Campfire Collective

Are you interested in partnering with us?

The mission of the association is to equip leaders for vibrant and sustainable ministries. This is accomplished using the team approach - that leaders are better equipped when they share with and learn from other leaders. Our member camps and retreat centers have an ecumenical future and we believe that our association has one as well. By working together with our sisters and brothers in Christ, our members are able to do so much more by reaching across denominational lines. The Campfire Collective is affiliated with the Presbyterian Church Camp and Conference Association and the Outdoor Ministries Institute (serving the camps of the United Church of Canada), but the organization currently includes camps, retreat centers, and conference centers from many denominations.

We currently serve camps and conference centers from

  • American Baptist Church
  • Cooperative Baptist Fellowship
  • Disciples of Christ
  • Moravian Church in America
  • Presbyterian Church in Canada
  • Presbyterian Church (USA)
  • Reformed Church in America
  • United Church of Canada
  • United Church of Christ

Whether or not your denomination is on this list, we are interested in talking with you about being a part of the Campfire Collective. We believe that it is when we share knowledge and collaborate that our ministries gain so much. We are always seeking new partners. Perhaps your Christian camp or conference center would benefit by joining the association.
