Early registration for Summer 2023 is now open… and it’s going to be the Best Summer Ever! We can’t wait to see all our awesome campers, do our favorite energizers, ride the banana boat, do the high ropes, play with friends, and have an amazing time!

Enjoy Retreat Season at Camp Maranatha!

When we’re not loaded up with summer campers, Camp Maranatha provides opportunities to use the Lakeside Retreat and Conference Center and Cabins to bring groups for team building, strategic planning, leadership training or retreats. Located on the banks of the beautiful Tennessee River in a natural setting, Maranatha provides a get away from the stress and outside distraction that’s ideal for churches and companies in need of event space.


Conference Center

The conference center offers a large, 1600 sq ft conference room which can be divided into two smaller breakout rooms, equipped with wifi and state of the art technology.  16 hotel-style rooms with queen sized beds ensure a comfortable stay.

Our History

For over 50 years, Maranatha has served North Alabama and beyond as a safe gathering place. It has been, and will continue to be, a place where differences are set aside and our humanity, spirituality, and commonality are re-ignited.

Nestled on the banks of the Tennessee River on beautiful Lake Guntersville, the beauty of creation provides our campers a unique chance to unplug and experience Maranatha… and find what it means to them.
