About Camp Marion

 

Statement of Faith


 1. We believe the Bible to be the inspired and only infallible, authoritative Word of God.

2. We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

3. We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His personal return in power and glory.

4. We believe that for the salvation of lost and sinful man, regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential (i.e. one must be “born again”).

5. We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life.

6. We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost; they that are saved unto the resurrection of life and they that are lost unto the resurrection of damnation.

7. We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ.

 

A Brief History
of the
Tremont Advent Christian Campmeeting Association

    This Association has been holding annual campmeetings consecutively for over 150 years. It is called the Tremont  Association because its roots are in that small Massachusetts town. Campmeetings were very popular in those early days of the 1860’s; attendance often exceed 2500.
    In 1905 fire burned all the campground’s buildings, including the tabernacle, a restaurant and the boardinghouse. The present campground on Hammetts Cove in Marion was rented that summer with option to buy, and that fall the Association  purchased and took ownership of the property.
    Once the land was cleared, a large tent was erected near the water and smaller,family tents were pitched nearby.  Cottage building began quickly: by 1911 the Treasurer’s report listed 18 or 20 cottages on the grounds. The new Boardinghouse served meals to 100 at a sitting and had several rooms on the second floor for camp attenders. In 1923 the Tabernacle was completed, a 40 by 60 wooden structure  designed to seat up to 200. It was often filled to overflowing.
    Several hurricanes left great changes on the campground.  The first, in 1938, destroyed one cottage and inundated the rest with muddy tidal-wave water to a depth of eight feet at the eastern end. In 1944, another hurricane brought fierce winds that completed the destruction of  scores of tall pines whose roots had been weakened by the salt-water flooding of 1938.  Hurricane Carol in 1954 brought some flooding and swept two more cottages away, but the worst blow was the hit suffered by the Boardinghouse. It was damaged beyond repair. It was dismantled and much of its salvageable lumber used to build a new Cookhouse on the western side of the campground, on higher ground, safe from future floods.
    Aside from great changes in the land, the spirit of the Association remained steadfast, and the ministry has continued uninterrupted. God has always provided a way to overcome whatever obstacles have threatened to hinder our mission.  Through inspired evangelists and music leaders, camp directors & staffs and all the many volunteer laborers in the vineyard Camp Marion, thousands of lives have been reached and changed.  TACCA’s lovely grounds have been the scene of many retreats, baptisms, Sunday School picnics, weddings and family observances, in addition to its Campmeetings and Youth Camps.
    Its message is just as important and true, and as much needed, as it has ever been.
