What are we up to during these next 50 or so days?
Final hiring for Summer Staff
We are hiring our last few summer staffers for summer 2019! Would you be interested in sponsoring one of almost 60 staffers? Click here for more info.
Yep! We are already ordering your shirt for Summer 2019. Don’t worry, we always make sure we have enough and prepare to make a second order about halfway through the summer for folks who haven’t registered yet.
Promoting Camp Pastors
Have you been following along on our social media accounts? We have been announcing our Summer 2019 Camp Pastors and we are thrilled to have some amazing folks pouring into our campers. Check out our other blog posts to see who is coming for Summer 2019.
Devotion Booklet Final Touches
We wrote our devotion booklets a few months back but now we are putting the finishing touches on them to send them to print. Each year, we spend months pouring over our curriculum making sure it is perfect. Click here to see exactly what is in store for Summer 2019.
Preparing New Activities
New activities?! Yep! Stay tuned for what those new activities are. We can’t wait to share with you!
We are constantly in prayer for the ministry at Asbury Hills. Whether it is welcoming retreat group guests, summer staffers, volunteers or campers, we are always praying for any and everyone who steps foot on our property. Our prayer is that we can live our mission out through our guests and ensure their time at Asbury Hills is just what they need.
What do we suggest you do in these next few months leading up to your camper’s week at Asbury Hills?
For starters, if you haven’t registered, it isn’t too late! Be sure to register quick! Our spaces are over 75% full and we won’t be opening many more new spaces.
Download Your Packing List
Ready to start shopping for what your camper needs at camp? Great! We have BRAND NEW packing lists on the website ready for you to download. This year, we are asking folks to pack in luggage like you would pack to travel in an airplane–one suitcase, a carry on (backpack!) and a pillow. We will share details later but we are working on improving our check-out procedures and this will help immensely! Click here to see the packing list for CIT, Eclipse, Core, Drenched and Altitude. The packing list for Express and Family Camp can be found here. The Expedition packing list can be found here. When in doubt, feel free to reference our General Packing List!

Our YouTube Channel is packed full of all kinds of cool stuff! You can find the highlight videos from previous summers there. You can also find introduction videos for our Summer 2019 Camp Pastors. There are also videos on some of our most popular activities at Asbury Hills loaded on our YouTube channel. We hope watching these videos with your camper gets them excited for their week at Asbury Hills!

We ask that you keep our full time staff in your prayers as they have spent many months preparing for this summer. We ask that you remember our 2019 Staffers as they are giving their summer up to spend time with campers pouring into them and sharing God’s word with them.

Sponsor a Summer Staffer!
Are you willing to sponsor a 2019 Summer Staffer? We simply ask our sponsors to pray for and keep their assigned staffer in their thoughts throughout the summer. We also encourage sponsors to send little notes of encouragement to staffers throughout the summer. If you are interested in sponsoring a staffer, click here to sign up.
