Summer Programs

All summer long, Maranatha features compelling speakers and inspiring mission groups to feed and inspire our adult guests and members. Bible teaching and worldwide missions is the foundation we were built on almost nine decades ago and we plan to continue this great tradition until His triumphant return! For our youth, we have an array of fun, life-changing experiences to bring Gospel hope, and to help grow and nurture that faith. There is never a dull or boring moment at Maranatha during our epic summers!

Each year, Maranatha hosts some of the most prominent preachers and teachers in Evangelicalism to enrich and encourage our guests


Maranatha presents mission groups from around the world who come to engage guests and members throughout the week.


Our worship team is led by Charly Summers, who has been at Maranatha for almost two decades. He brings young talented students from all over the Midwest in a band that blends traditional and contemporary worship styles.


Each day during your vacation stay, kids from nursery up through teens have dedicated programming built around strong Biblical theology to present the Gospel in compelling and age-appropriate ways. Of course, we do this with amazing recreation, team building, mentorship, and FUN!


Preteens and teens have plenty to keep them busy at Maranatha.  Your teen will interact with staff, engage in prayer and worship times, look with a Biblical lens into issues relevant to their age group, and learn crazy new games.

Sports Camps

Maranatha works with professional athletes to coach our summer sports camps and share the love of Christ. Each week features a different sport and the camps include teaching fundamentals, skill drills, game play, and what it means to compete with love and honor.
