Discover Maranatha

Outdoor adventures & life-changing retreats for 4 generations of North Alabama campers!

For over 60 years, Maranatha has served North Alabama and beyond as a safe gathering place for retreats, summer camps, and group events. 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.

Join us this year at Maranatha for the Best Summer Ever!

I was very nervous to send my young daughters to day camp, especially one that was 45 minutes away on a bus, but when we came out to camp day and met all the leaders and organizers, it put all my worries to rest.



Camper Mom

I have made lifelong friends, experienced re-creation in recreation, and even met my future wife, all at Maranatha. As a counselor, attending programs, and now as a parent with children attending, Maranatha has a way of revealing God’s love for everyone!



Camper Dad

Camp Marantha is a great place for kids to spend a week on Lake Guntersville! My son loved doing daycamp and is ready to be able to spend overnight when he is older. Safe transportation from HSV!
