Jesus declared, “When the Son of Man returns, will He find faith in the earth?”


Due to Quarantine Requirements for Out of State Visitors, and consultation with our Insurance Provider,  the Board of the Advent Christian Church and Conference Center has made the difficult decision to cancel our 2020 Camp. 

The determination was made that it would be impossible to properly staff the program since a large percentage of our staff is from out of state. The insurance provider has advised us that if we did not follow state guidelines any sickness or other claims resulting from the encampment would NOT BE COVERED, putting the Association and our property at great risk.  The board regrets this decision has been necessary but feels it had no reasonable options.

Any inquiries regarding this decision should be made directly to Association President, Michael T. McCosker at mtmccosker@comcast.net

I’m pressing on the upward way,
New heights I’m gaining every day;
Still praying as I onward bound,
“Lord, plant my feet on higher ground.”

       Generation after generation of faithful believers has flocked to these sacred grounds to seek an encounter with God. He patiently awaits our return to look upon His Face. Families have gathered at White River for the annual camp meeting for generations. Some of the memories we hold most dear were created on these old grounds. God has faithfully met us here where He has uplifted wounded souls, encouraged broken spirits, and burned away the dross that has encrusted our hearts to set us free. So many look back at the years gone by with such fond memories.

And yet, we are encouraged by the apostle Paul to not gaze upon that which has passed for too long, but to look ahead to days yet to come. God still has work to do among us. He says, “Forgetting those things that are behind, I press on toward the mark of the high calling of God.” As sweet as those days are that are behind us, we cannot live there. If we do, we die and the work that God is doing dies with it. Today is a day to move forward, to embrace a new day, a new thing . . . today is a day to press on!


It’s a great time to be with God and friends. God’s love and grace is available for all, God is still speaking, and we are called to minister for peace and justice in the world. Come on along seeker and believer, certain and uncertain, new to faith or an old-timer.

White River exists as a place of refuge, where families of faith come together with other families of like precious faith where we can seek and be sought by a Living God and a Risen Lord.


White River Christian Camp is an evangelical retreat center with Advent Christian heritage since 1887. The camp is available for rent throughout the year (except for winter months) and is the site of our annual White River Camp Meeting which is conducted the first week of August every year.
