Camp Gilead

Camp Gilead is a year-round Christian Camp and Retreat Center that has served central Florida since 1938! We exist to glorify God by creating an atmosphere for individuals to evaluate their relationship with Christ and be challenged to make decisions resulting in changed lives.

It is a safe place filled with opportunities to be challenged both physically and spiritually while making lifelong friends. In fact, many return year after year because they cannot bear the thought of a summer without being a part of the action at camp, seeing their friends, and being spiritually refreshed.

Each child’s health and safety are top concerns. All activities are under the direction of trained Christian staff who live in cabins with campers. Trained first-aid personnel and certified lifeguards are also on duty.
