Marmon Valley Ministries

Marmon Valley Ministries exists to provide camps that encourage campers to experience a love for God, a life of obedience to His Word, and a passion for His glory. 

Horsemanship experiences make up a large portion of the camp structure. Campers are placed in the appropriate horseback riding classes based on their riding experience and age. Within the context of learning horsemanship skills, many opportunities arise for ministry. Horsemanship classes allow for teachable moments where the class may see spiritual truth illustrated. 

At Marmon Valley Ministries, we believe all persons are created in God’s image and are therefore worthy of respect and dignity regardless of their age, race, color, sex, disability, nationality, religion, parental status, or veteran status. We offer a loving environment where campers can be confronted about their need for Christ, be encouraged to discover God’s Word, and be excited about growing in their faith. We believe that our camps offer an important service to families and churches that is intended to come alongside their God given efforts to raise up godly young men and women. Our camps reinforce the gospel message as a supporting third voice. By God’s grace, Marmon Valley Ministries has helped many children to come to faith in Christ and learn to live a life of faith and commitment to Him.

The routine world in which all children live is busy and full of influences and relationships. Some of these are helpful, some are distracting. Camp is able to create a temporary culture of spiritual growth that provides positive influences and genuine relationships. Campers can come for a short stay and be removed from distractions in order to focus on the truth of the Bible. Camp is an intentional attempt to see and savor Christ throughout all of a camper’s experiences and relationships. This is largely done by relationally engaging campers with staff who model a Christ-centered life of growth and love.
