“50 for 50” Camp Aldersgate Drive

The Uprising is celebrating 50 years of Mayfield Church youth attending Camp Aldersgate, beginning in 1970. Mayfield is still the only church in the conference that does a full week of overnight camp. Camp Aldersgate has been a crucial place for thousands of kids to discover and strengthen their relationship with God. In recent years, the camp has made many significant improvements that all former campers would appreciate:
  • Air Conditioning in all buildings, including cabins;
  • Mid-camp Bathroom renovations (by the worship hut and stairs), including private changing areas (and few spiders);
  • Paved the driveway between the mess hall and worship hut (formerly known as the indoor chapel);
  • Properly fenced basketball area with a regulation hoop.
  • New kitchen equipment
Camp Aldersgate has shown solid financial stability, finishing with positive balances in both operating and capital funds while making these significant improvements. In 2012, church members contributed funds and provided much of the labor for two new cabins that have vastly impacted many youth and adult campers.
For 2020, The Uprising is asking Mayfield Aldersgate alumni to partner with Camp Aldersgate with the hope of raising up to $50,000 to commemorate and strengthen their relationships with the camp and make it a wonderful place for generations to come. The projects funded by these contributions are a mix of infrastructure improvements with a focus on elevating every camper’s experience:
  • Wooded low ropes/challenge course: looking for volunteers to help build this.
  • Lakefront Adventure Island – permanent waterfront infrastructure including slides, rope swings, diving board, and other recreational opportunities.
  • Main lodge renovation of ground floor bathrooms (including expansion), addition of private changing areas, and overall comfort and functionality.
For 50 years, Camp Aldersgate has played a key role in the life of our youth and congregation. As Camp Aldersgate Alumni and friends, we hope to provide many more opportunities for youth to grow in Christ. The Uprising invites all Aldersgate alumni and friends to please prayerfully and carefully consider contributing to these important Camp Aldersgate projects.
