Welcome to

Mt. Moriah Christian Camp

About us. . . . .

Mount Moriah Christian Camp was established as a ministry of Temple Baptist Church in Powell, Tennessee. Pastor Clarence Sexton led the church to begin the camp by faith with a vision to stir young people to “Take the High Road” and to strengthen local churches in their efforts to reach young people for Christ.

"The high road is not choosing between the good and the bad. It is choosing between the good and the best and always choosing the best. The best is the unending pursuit of Jesus Christ." -Clarence Sexton

Mornings are filled with instruction and each day ends with a powerful rally to inspire young people to take the high road in life. Each day is structured so that campers begin with a personal devotional time that includes Bible memorization. Each cabin counselor leads a group devotional time at the close of the day. Group leaders are encouraged to meet with their young people each night to hear their testimonies and pray with them about the decisions they are making. Campers meet each evening for Bible preaching under the open-air tabernacle. On Wednesday evening, the camp service is held at Temple Baptist Church. Campers participate in a testimony service around the bonfire on Thursday night. Our 110-acre camp property is located just four miles from the church and college campuses.

Located in the beautiful foothills of the Great Smoky Mountains, campers and counselors will have the opportunity to draw close to the Lord through daily Bible devotions, memorization time, preaching, and fellowship with other Christians! Also, we can't mention camp without the excitement of competitive games, the pool & waterslide, the fast & furious zipline, and crazy fun skits! Don't miss it!

“For many years Mount Moriah has been used in the lives of our young people.  Every year our young people have grown spiritually, all the while enjoying one of the most beautiful spots in God’s creation.  There is no shortage of Christian camps, but the thing that keeps us coming back to Mount Moriah every summer is the spiritual emphasis that permeates every part of the camp experience.”
