Due to the rapid and unfortunate spread of COVID-19, this season at Asbury Hills looks a little different. Our main goal at Asbury Hills is to ensure that our staff, campers, and guests are safe. All updates will be posted here as they come available.
May 22, 2020
In an effort to do no harm, and to preserve the integrity of an outstanding camping experience at Asbury Hills, one that you have come to know over the last 58 years, it is with heavy hearts that we the staff and board make the most difficult decision to suspend camp for the summer of 2020.
We can only imagine your disappointment in this devastating news after everything else we are sure your family has had to endure over the last few months due to COVID-19. We will continue to keep your family in our prayers as you begin to make alternate plans for the summer. We will provide various online resources that you might want to take advantage of to help you and your child cope with the loss of not being able to attend camp this summer.
Please keep us in your prayers as well as we begin to navigate the tough waters ahead. For a full refund, click the button below to fill out the form.

The safety of our guests and staff are our top priority! We are accepting bookings for your group retreats for dates after August 2020. Those dates are filling quickly so be sure to book soon!

We have taken into consideration the best practices suggested by the American Camping Association, The Association of Camp Nursing, the Association for Challenge Course Technology, the American Red Cross, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the Department of Health and Environmental Control, and our local authorities to come to the conclusion that we cannot safely operate camp this summer. This decision was made final by our board of directors on May 21st, 2020.
