It's the fancy word for the significance of this year's Camp Meeting. Highland Park turns 125 years old this year! We want to make sure you're a part of our celebration. It's absolutely something you'll not want to miss out on. Why not? Keep reading.
125 Years ago...
In 1891, a large group of people split off from Perkasie Park Camp Meeting. Two years later, they established Highland Park Camp Meeting in Sellersville, and drew literally thousands of people. By the year 1900, Highland Park was attended by over 8,000!
Years later, in 1936, Highland Park held its first Youth Camp. This tradition has continued for 82 years! We've worked very hard to keep our Youth Camp program strong ever since, and this year, we are planning some pretty special things for you to enjoy as a camper.
This year's theme song is "Help Me Find It" by the Sidewalk Prophets. We listened! This camper-preferred theme song is all about letting God guide us on our way through life. We hope it will be a source of inspiration for you.
Chill out 3 times a day
Thanks to an incredibly generous donation by Lillian Clemens, our dining hall has now been equipped with... AIR CONDITIONING! I know this may not seem like much at this moment, considering it was snowing yesterday, but entire generations of past campers will be extremely jealous of you this July!
Hope 2018: A Free Concert featuring Bonray!
Friday evening during our Annual Camp Meeting, we have the up and coming band Bonray performing for us. As an effort for outreach to our community, this concert is free for the public and we are expecting a huge turnout. The concert will take place at 7:00 p.m. on Friday, August 3, 2018. You won't want to miss it, it will be an incredible show!
We searched far and wide this year for a great guest evangelist for our 125th Anniversary. We found someone perfect to share the word of God for this year's Camp Meeting. David Crain is a nationally known Christian speaker and musician who uses music inspire and uplift. We are truly blessed to have David speak to us this year.
