Thanks to our Pastor Emeritus Rev. David McNabb and one of our former pastors Rev. Joel Adams, First Presbyterian Church has maintained a long-standing relationship with Camp Carew. This ministry has provided a source of retreat and renewal for members of our church through many years. Each summer, we take at least one group of students to one of Camp Carew’s week-long camps.

Camp Carew provides a childrens and young adults Christian camp and retreat nestled in the beautiful woods of Little Grassy Lake. Built on 60 wooded acres 10 miles south of Carbondale. Camp Carew is dedicated to providing Christian faith based camps and retreats and it is also available for special events. Camp Carew is open year round with limited access in the winter months.
