Mission Statement

Camp Mardela seeks to provide children and adults with opportunities for spiritual growth, fellowship, and recreation in a setting that deepens their appreciation for God's creation.

Camp Mardela is a Christian camp located on the Eastern Shore of Maryland. We are affiliated with the Church of the Brethren and strive to exemplify the Brethren lifestyle of living peacefully, simply, and together. We offer 5-6 weeks of overnight camp in the summer months, a family weekend camp in the fall, and youth weekend retreats in the winter. To learn more about out camping programs, click here.


In the fall, winter, spring, and summer our camp buildings are available for rental. To learn more about rental facilities, click here

Camp Mardela was established in 1948 and sits next to Martinak State Park. Camp Mardela's property spans approximately 120 acres of land.
