About Camp Calvary

Why Comes First

Our History

2024 marks 50 years since Calvary Baptist Church and their Pastor, Dr. E.R. Jordan, were seeking a property to be used for a Bible Camp. That year, 53 acres of beautiful Berks County was purchased from the Assembly of God Church marking the start of Camp Calvary. There was much work needed to transition the property from farm usage to Bible camp usage.  Through a sacrificial Sunday offering and volunteer labor, Camp Calvary built the large C-shaped pool in 1977 along with setting up a kitchen and dining room in the lower level of the main building.
