Important Announcement – 5/17/2019Grace and Peace to our Brothers & Sisters in Christ & Supporters of Tidal River Christian Camp,
We thank God for the partnership in the Lord area congregations and Tidal River Christian Camp have. Philippians 1:4-6 “…I always pray with joy because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now…he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.”
It is with heavy hearts we are informing our spiritual partners of the TRCC Board’s decision to reduce our 46th annual 2019 camping season from four weeks to two weeks. July (7th-12th) will be a single week for junior age campers (8-12 years of age) and July (14th-19th) will be a single week for senior week campers (13-18 years of age).
While we are consolidating from 4 weeks to 2 weeks of camp this year we want to make sure that your money is transferred successfully.
If your child was attending 2 weeks of camp this year we will transfer any payments from one week to the other week.
If the total payments made exceed the cost of camp for that one week then we will send a check to the name of the camper at the camper’s address. If you need that check to be another name and at another location please advise us.
If you cannot move your child to the next available week, please contact us and we will send you back a check in full amount.
This decision was made with much prayer, sorrow and a loving desire to serve our youth of southern New England in the best possible way. The Board of Directors felt we needed to make this decision due to very limited volunteer staff and low camper numbers. Over the last few years we have been challenged with finding staff and participation of parents sending their children to TRCC.
The dedicated Christian men and women who serve in organizing TRCC work very hard to implement ways for camp to be filled with the Holy Spirit, truth, safety, fun and affordability for parents.
Like the men of Issachar who understood the times (1 Chronicles 12:32), the spiritual and emotional needs for our young men and women to have a month long summer TRCC camp has never been more critical. Our TRCC board servants always look at ourselves first to see any area where we personally need to be better. However, if Tidal River Christian Camp is to be strengthened and continue for another 46 years or until the Lord returns, we need your help in these specific areas.
- We need enough campers to financially support this work.
- We need willing volunteers to give their love, time and energy to campers as a service to the Lord.
- We need local church leadership to actively support and promote TRCC.
- We need parents to see the need to help in building their child’s faith.
- We need men of God to rise up and help us supplement the local churches efforts to mentor younger men to be the Lord’s present servants as well as future elders, deacons, preachers and teachers.
- We need women of God willing to serve and help to mentor younger women to be greatest in the kingdom of God as servants.

A Day At Camp!
FRIDAY NIGHTS ARE BACK!
We are pleased to announce the return of our Friday Night Program! This was a cherished part of TRCC for campers and parents for generations. Prior to taking your children home on Friday night please plan to attend an evening of skits, singing, awards, and more! A great way to end an encouraging week of fun and growth!
Registration is super easy this year! You can now register on our new camp portal! You can pay just a deposit of $50 and the rest when you come to camp.
Here are a few things you can do in the camp portal:
Below are a list of places where camp can use help. There are some requirements for a few of them but the rest are up to you and where you are spiritually.
For the past 46 years TRCC has been an impactful place to be for the summer. The time we work with the kids in devotion and learning has brought about some great spiritual revivals.
Don’t you want to find purpose? Camp is a great time for all of us. It is a beautiful camp ground and a great place to find where Jesus wants you to serve.
