About Us 



Camp Good News® is primarily a day camp with activities for children ages 5 - 12.  We are located at 120 Twin Lakes Road in Hawthorne, Florida. This will be our 48th summer in operation at this location.  While children can be dropped off directly at camp we have several convenient pick up locations, such as Westside Park in Gainesville, where children can ride the bus to camp.


Camp Good News is a ministry of Child Evangelism Fellowship of Florida Inc. North Central Chapter. Child Evangelism Fellowship is a non-denominations, evangelical, Christian organization.

In addition to our many indoor and outdoor activites such as archery, basketball court, climbing wall, large multi-purpose activity field, giant waterslide, and a spring-fed lake in which to swim.  We also provide the children with daily opportunities to learn life skills gleaned from God's Word - The Bible and the adventures of missionaries around the world.
