Camp New Life, established in 1998, is the main outreach of New Life Ministries of Jackson, MS. which itself has been ministering to urban youth and their families in Jackson, MS since 1981.

Camp New Life exists to provide a secure, natural, and enriched environment for youth whose daily existence is impoverished and dangerous in every way, spiritually, physically, mentally, emotionally.

At Camp New Life these youth are provided an opportunity to slow down their lives, enjoy country life, and focus on the eternal truths of God’s Word, and their relationship to Him through Jesus Christ, through the enabling of the Holy Spirit.

Camp New Life is used both as a summer camp and a retreat center throughout the year.

PURPOSE OF CAMP NEW LIFE:  
To glorify the Triune God of Scripture by mentoring troubled and at-risk youth and their families through Christ-centered education, small group activities promoting personal growth, Christ-centered camping experiences, and mercy ministries to family units in crisis.

  • VISION:  To bring revival to Jackson by reaching each young person & his or her family for Jesus Christ in our target area.
  • MISSION:  To mentor & disciple at-risk youth & their families to walk a life of faith.
  • STRATEGY:  To establish and nurture lasting relationships with families through small groups, recreation, summer camping, mercy ministries, and the arts.
