Chesapeake Conference is gearing up for this year’s camp meeting, “The Gathering: Occupy Till He Comes,” which is set to take place June 13–17 on the campus of Highland View Academy in Hagerstown, Md. This year marks the return to an in-person event after the COVID-19 pandemic forced the conference to switch to a virtual format for the past three years.
“The number one question I have received lately from our Chesapeake constituents is, ‘Are we going to have camp meeting in person this year?’ The resounding answer is, ‘Yes!’” says Andre Hastick, executive secretary and camp meeting coordinator.
