Maywood Christian Camp

Maywood Christian Camp is a facility located approximately half-way between Memphis, TN and Birmingham, AL in the northwest Alabama town of Hamilton.  MCC was founded in the early 1960’s by a group of people who had the vision of a Christian camp for the youth of not only our area but for young and old from all parts of the country.  Maywood Christian Camp is located on approximately 120 acres of land, much of which was provided by the Mays family many years ago.  Since that time, Maywood has evolved into a camp that can provide housing for well over 350 people as well as a large dining hall and kitchen, pavilion with basketball court and seating, swimming pool, lake, hiking trails, activity fields, beach volleyball, and disc golf course.  We have several covered teaching stations scattered around the camp for Bible classes, an amphitheater area in the woods where evening devotionals can be held, a fire pit by the lake with seating area and an area in the pavilion for evening worship services.


A board of trustees who are all dedicated men and women that are members of the churches of Christ oversees Maywood Christian Camp.  This group meets at least three times each year to discuss ideas and concerns and make decisions on the welfare of MCC.  In addition, each week of camp has a competent director or group of directors who plan and operate each week of camp.  There is also a camp administrator who oversees the day-to-day operations and business of the camp as well as scheduling the camp for use by other groups.
