From its beginnings serving orphaned and poor children in 1934, Camp Bennett has been a haven for disadvantaged youth escaping the city as well as a working farm for unemployed men and a place for rehabilitation and retreat for men experiencing homelessness.


Today,  the Mission is rehabilitating Camp Bennett for another chapter.  It will continue to serve inner city children as a beautiful summer camp; in addition, it is opening its doors as a lodging and meeting space, a retreat center, banquet hall and more.  Its facilities will serve campers, churches, prayer groups and corporations.
