Welcome to Camp Allendale! Camp Allendale, a Christian Camp and Retreat Center. It is our purpose to reach others for Christ. With over 2200 campers we offer many exciting activities including low rope courses, a climbing tower, commercial waterslides, an 8 person zip line (the Leap of Faith) and the Blob. We also have retreat facilities available for rent between the months of September and May.
It had always been a dream of Floyd and Marie Allen to have a Christian Camp for children. For many years, Marie would load her school bus with kids and haul them to various parks to have camp. Before their dream could be realized, Floyd was killed in a truck accident. Despite that tragedy, Marie continued on with their dream. In 1949, along with several area ministers, the dream was brought to a reality. Marie donated 30 acres of her property and Camp Allendale was born.
The first camp sessions were held in 1951. A small lake had been dug and a basement kitchen and dining hall constructed. Campers lived in tents and soon the bathhouse was built along with several small cabins. Since that time, the facility has grown to 180 acres and over 40 buildings and 2 lakes.
Over the years, Camp Allendale has developed into a very large program with a strong summer youth camp as well as a very active retreat program. Marie's dream has been realized over and over again.
