CCA provides a safe, rich, and nurturing environment where kids and adults alike are able to strengthen their relationship with God. Diverse activities, games, competition, and teamwork enrich the summer camp weeks and weekend retreats and help foster new friendships during a literal mountaintop adventure.
In 1961, Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Falke gave twenty-eight acres of beautiful mountain land near the Schoharie Creek in Lexington, New York, for the establishment of a Christian Camp. The Camp was to be used by churches within the Brotherhood of Christian Churches/Churches of Christ to help them promote New Testament Christianity in the New York Metropolitan area. The camp became Catskill Christian Assembly or better known as CCA.
One of the primary goals of the CCA is to introduce people to Jesus Christ and to subsequently reinforce their faith in him. To accomplish this there are many camp weeks and retreats for both young people and adults throughout the year. Teaching and preaching the Gospel are highest on the list of CCA activities but there are many other leisure time activities which are beneficial to those who are looking for a change of pace from the hum drum world of the metropolitan area. Some of these activities include hiking, fishing, softball, volleyball, ping pong, campfires, etc. The fellowship of common believers at CCA is also an invaluable resource for churches within the brotherhood, especially those who are small and sometimes feel isolated in the big city.
CCA is owned and operated by the Christian Churches/Churches of Christ of the New York Metropolitan area.
The camp facilities are available for use by churches, Bible school groups and individual families when camp activities are not scheduled.
