A little History!
God has had His hand firmly on Camp Albemarle since its beginning in 1953. On their way to visit a potential site for a camp near Wilmington, a group from the Albemarle Presbytery experienced car trouble while traveling on State Road 24 near Newport. While the men repaired the car, the women decided to take a walk to see Bogue Sound.
While near the water, they encountered the property owner, who, on discovering their mission, suggested that they purchase her property for their camp! After some negotiation – the property owner wanted $67,000 and the Presbytery only wanted to pay $66,000 (the owner finally made a $1,000 donation to the Presbytery so they could pay her asking price) – the property was purchased, and Camp Albemarle came into being!
Today, Camp Albemarle is one of the most popular summer camps on the Crystal Coast located near the beautiful beaches of NC. Over the years, they have added more options to host campers from pre-school-aged for day camps all the way to high schoolers in residential and adventure camps. Year-round, Camp Albemarle is home to The Nature School which offers a variety of programs for students age 3 to 14.
Campers at Camp Albemarle spend their days sailing, swimming, tree climbing, creating masterpieces in creative arts, learning God’s amazing world and much, much more! Special learning opportunities exist for learning to sail, horseback riding, outdoor living (camping, cooking over a fire…) and XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX
