Who We Are

Camp Mardela is a Church of the Brethren church camp founded in 1948 to be a space for children and adults to retreat into nature and learn more about themselves, the world around them, and God. We host winter and summer camping programs, rental groups, community and fundraising events throughout the year. Explore our website to see all of the things we do here at camp!
