“On December 1989, Chinese Christian Herald Crusades signed the lease to an upstate NY campsite offered by the NY State government. Vacated for eight years, the campsite needed a large-scale renovation. By God’s grace and working day and night, renovation on the campsite was completed in two months. In July 1990, the first summer youth camp at Camp Herald was held for seven weeks with over a hundred attendants. The original vision behind Camp Herald was outreach to the teens of NYC Chinatown by inviting them to experience camping outdoors while also sharing the hope and love of Jesus Christ. These days, our campers comprise of youth from the different NYC boroughs and even the greater New York area. And after all these years, our mission remains the same: To share the hope and love of Jesus Christ.”
Camp Herald is a unique ministry that provides a work field for Christians to demonstrate collaborative work and join forces in God’s work. Our main program throughout the entire summer, Herald Gospel Camp (HGC), focuses not only on fostering teamwork, communication, and fellowship between all the campers we take in under our wing, but also on building a personal relationship between Christ and the campers. Campers often return year after as volunteers to give back to the ministry.
