Join today to prepare and protect your camp
Christian camps, retreat centers, and many other ministries are at a higher risk for legal issues than ever before. Why? Because today’s culture is not always accepting, and sometimes even hostile, towards Christian beliefs. Laws are changing, new issues are arising, and your camp needs to be prepared.
How is your camp or retreat center preparing for gender identity and sexual orientation issues – arising from campers, volunteers, rental requests, and more?
Laws about sexual orientation and gender identity change and differ between states and cities. Awareness and an understanding of these laws, as well as a plan for how you will respond, are crucial to protecting your ministry.
Does your camp or retreat center have governing documents and policies in place? Are they written in a way that provides legal protection?
Lack of adequately written policies and documents can impact your camp’s ability to defend itself and may even put your ministry at risk.
Are you uncomfortable addressing issues or avoiding publicizing your policies due to fear of negative media attention or pressure from the community?
Ignoring issues or hiding your policies can have legal implications for your camp and potentially hinder your ability to minister.
ADF Ministry Alliance is here to serve you. Through this membership program, you can access practical legal help to address these questions and many other religious freedom legal issues. You have the right to live out your beliefs, operate your camp in accordance with your faith, and minister to those in your retreat facility. We can help you do that by anticipating potential issues and guiding your team as new legal challenges arise. Let us carry your legal burden.
Alliance Defending Freedom has been on the forefront of legal issues impacting the religious freedom of businesses, churches, nonprofits, and individuals for 25 years.

To Prepare Ministries for the Changing Culture
We review your camp or retreat center’s governing documents, policies, employment documents and more. Then we recommend changes and best practices tailored to protect religious liberty. If you do not have these documents in place or if they are incomplete, we will provide sample documents to help you get started.
Reach out to our attorneys whenever you have legal questions about your camp’s religious liberty. If you don’t know if these are legal issues, or even if they have religious freedom implications, you still have access – and our attorneys can help guide you to next steps.
Ensure Christian camps like yours have the legal representation needed for religious freedom issues. If necessary, we can even help your organization with these legal matters – including litigation – at no additional cost.
Ensure ministries have the legal representation they need by committing to membership.
Thorough ministry documents can serve as positive evidence in the courtroom. Additionally, members face peace of mind when confronting legal issues or changes. ADF Ministry Alliance also helps clarify how your ministry is distinctly Christian.
