Camp Kernop is Metro Baptist Association’s Christian camp in northern Madison County, in the Camden community. In 1997, Mrs. Nettie Marie Kernop, from the Camden community, gave the association 200 acres of land. She wanted a Christian Children’s Camp built on this property.
Due to the lack of funds, the land sat dormant until 2007. At this time, we received the architectural drawing for the camp. In January, 2007 she told us to expect a call from her banker, as she had some money for us to start the camp development, which he desired to have for children to come to the Lord. The amount Mrs. Kernop gave the association to begin development of the camp was $431,000. Three months later, Mrs. Kernop passed away suddenly at 93 years old.
The lodge is finished now and used by many of our MBA churches. The pavilion is in process and will be used for youth and children. Eventually, there will be cabins constructed for overnight use by the children and youth.
