Camp Hamby had it’s beginnings back in 1968 when Mr. Hugh Hamby gave a small plot of country land to the Methodist churches in Chattooga County, GA. It was Mr. Hamby’s wish to give a place where the youth could camp, worship, and have a good time with outdoor activities.
What started out as 14 acres has grown into 42 acres due to the hard work and generosity of many people, all with a common goal. Mr. Hamby died in 1986 but his memory lives on in the smiles of hundreds of children each year.
This year Camp Hamby will celebrate its 43rd year. Camp Hamby is an interdenominational day camp designed to provide fun and enriching activities for children ages 5 to 11.
