Ocean Grove Camp Meeting Association
- New Jersey
Ocean Grove is the longest-active camp meeting site in the United States, and since its founding in 1869 as an outgrowth of the nation-wide camp meeting movement, it has developed into a diversified and dynamic year-round community. Ocean Grove’s rich history of Christian witness spans nearly a century- and-a-half, yet the organization’s core mission remains: to be the seaside community where all generations can know and grow in Jesus.
Ocean Grove accomplishes this mission by providing opportunities for spiritual birth, growth, and renewal through worship, education, cultural, and recreational activities, all in a beautiful, seaside setting. Special memories are made as old friendships are renewed, new friendships are created, and friends and family share a season of fellowship and spiritual growth. When summer inevitably comes to an end, believers return home refreshed and renewed in the power of the Holy Spirit, having learned important faith lessons to carry them through the rest of the year and beyond.
Be the seaside community where all generations can know and grow in Jesus.
The mission of the Ocean Grove Camp Meeting Association (OGCMA), rooted in its Methodist Heritage, is to provide opportunities for spiritual birth, growth, and renewal through worship, educational, cultural, and recreational programs for persons of all ages in a Christian seaside setting.
