An enduring legacy of faith and family

Our Heart

Welcome to Camp Utopia, where faith, fun, and friendship come together to make unforgettable experiences. We are a christian camp, conference, and retreat center. Like a home away from home, we provide a peaceful escape in the outdoors for individuals and groups to deepen their relationship with God and connect with like-minded people.

Faith Comes First

This is a dedicated place for people to grow in their faith, learn about Jesus and the principles of christian living. It's our deep desire to share these things with others, since they are good and lead to life! The camp was built by the Alabama Church of God, a Christian denomination, and we stand on their core values.
