2022 Project Status

There is not enough that can be said of the invaluable contributions our volunteers make to camp! Through volunteer help, fundraising and donations, we have been able to complete and start the following project just 2 months into 2022:

  • New camp truck bought (done)

  • Security system installed at Administrator's house and King (done)

  • Replacing the Krabill kitchen ceiling (in progress)

  • Replace cabin mattresses (in progress)

  • Create a nature lodge (in progress)

  • Receive grant funding to restore camp's waterfront (in progress)

We are well on our way to accomplishing our 2022 project goals. The next items on the docket will be opening additional RV sites, getting a small chest freezer for the camp store, getting more 8-person tents, and inviting more of the community into camp events. Thanks to everyone who supports these projects, and we hope you can come to camp soon and enjoy the new things we are doing!

Spaghetti Dinner

We plan to host our annual Spaghetti Dinner fundraiser at the Denton Church of the Brethren at 108 S 7th St, Denton, MD 21629 on March 12th, from 5pm-7pm. However, for the safety of the volunteers and our dining guests, we will be serving these meals as to-go meals. We hope this offers safety and flexibility to those who want to support and take home a yummy meal! We ask for an $8 minimum donation for meals. Visit Spaghetti Dinner | Camp Mardela for more information.

Winter Retreats

We have been closely monitoring the COVID-19 situation on the Eastern Shore and have made the decision to change our weekend winter retreats to a 1-day program on Saturday for each age group. By making this change, we will be able to offer a winter program that is safe for all campers and staff. Thank you for your understanding as we have tried to navigate pandemic programming. Our priority is making a safe place for all people who come to camp, and this is how we hope to achieve that.

With reduced pricing, make sure you reserve your retreat spot today at PROGRAMS & EVENTS | Camp Mardela.

Camp Auction

We raised over $12,000 at our fall auction in 2021, and we are now moving it back to spring. There are many things to look forward to at this year's auction on April 2nd! Here are some ways you can support:

  • Sell print ads & sponsorships for the auction booklet (due February 28th)

  • Sell web ads & sponsorships for Camp Auction | Camp Mardela (due March 21st)

  • Donate auction items (due February 28th to be in booklet - items accepted later will be posted on the website)

  • Donate bake sale items (bring no later than 8am April 2nd)
