Welcome to Paradise!
Camp Anderson is a private Christian Summer Camp and Retreat in Florida. We’ve been called a ‘Little Slice of Heaven’. Only God could create a setting that is so beautiful and so unique. Our Christian summer camp is centrally located in the Southeast, about 45 minutes west of Gainesville Florida.
Our summer camp is located on a deep, wide section of the Suwannee River that is convenient to the Gulf of Mexico and that boasts the largest concentration of fresh water springs in the world.
Our Christian summer camp operates on weekdays from the beginning of June through the beginning of August. Our Florida summer camp facilities are also available for retreats, rentals, conferences, and music events for the balance of the year, including weekends.
Camp Anderson is a non-profit ministry with a spiritual focus to see lives eternally changed for the glory of God. Because our goals are not financially motivated, our Florida Christian summer youth camp and retreat fees are some of the lowest in the Southeast.
Letter from the Director
Dear Friends of Camp Anderson:
It is with a thankful heart and great anticipation that I share all that God is doing on this incredible Christian summer camp journey that we have named ‘Camp Anderson’. I am amazed at how God continues to provide the people, finances and favor in our community and abroad. God has provided a full time staff that now resides at the camp on the beautiful Suwannee River in NW Florida. This team has been handpicked by God and they have sacrificed much to be a part of something that is destined for greatness.
God has blessed this Christian summer camp with willing hearts and sponsors that have invested generously. The capacity of the camp has been upgraded with 26 new log cabins with private restrooms, which brings the total bed space up to 400. Additional new amenities include: a 2,500 sq. ft. resort style pool, a floating dock, residences for the camp pastor and director, a filtered water system and newly paved roads, just to name a few. Future plans include a new commercial kitchen/ cafeteria, ball fields and many other improvements that are sure to make Camp Anderson a spiritual destination for generations to come.
These incredible summer camp and retreat facilities are now open year round for retreats, rentals, conferences and music events. We can provide your group with a basic facilities rental designed to keep your cost low or you can add programming, activities, live music and speakers to make your event exceptional!
Recently, Camp Anderson received the ‘Champions of Hope’ award from Florida Governor Rick Scott at the National Faith Symposium for its work with ‘at risk’ young people in the state. These young people represent the most vulnerable in our society and suffer from neglect, abandonment and abuse. These young people come from organizations like Department of Children and Families [DCF], Meridian, Sheriffs Youth Ranches, Partnership for Strong Families, Baptist Children’s Home and other orphanage and foster care organizations in the Southeast.
This newfound relationship and cooperation is an incredible opportunity for the faith based community and our corporate sponsors to make a real difference in the lives of young people. In response to this open door, we have formed a new organization named “Masterpiece Initiative” that is focused on “Rescuing the Heart of a Child”. We are actively seeking business partners, churches and individuals to pledge to sponsor these young people.
Please join us on this incredible journey as we seek to reach the unreached of the next generation and make a real difference in the lives of young people in our community and in the Southeast. You can sponsor these young people at $175 each by going to www.campanderson.com and clicking on “Masterpiece Initiative”. 100% of your donation goes directly to sponsor children and is tax deductible.
In His Grip,
