The Advent Christian Camp Meeting Association of Mechanic Falls was established in 1889 by area Advent Christian churches to provide a time of spiritual, physical and emotional rest and refreshment, teach from the Bible and preach its message of forgiveness of sins and eternal life through faith in Jesus Christ and his second coming. The association also operates summer youth camps for ages 9 to 18 and an overnight camp for ages 7 and 8, which are open to all.
