Tuscarora Celebrates 50 Years

The 50th Anniversary Celebration closed with guests joining together to sing Friends are Forever.
On July 15-17, 2022, the Tuscarora family gathered to celebrate its 50th Anniversary. It was a weekend celebration of all God has done at this special place through the years. Guests arrived on Friday evening for a classic camp night including time in the snack shop, campfires with s’mores, and an evening swim. Saturday featured a summer staff reunion; followed by a carnival; service of celebration, with in-person and video testimonials; a celebration choir; banquet smorgasbord dinner; variety show; and fireworks! Sunday morning, a combined worship service was held with Mount Bethel Church (Mount Bethel, PA), which was fitting because Mount Bethel Church began on the grounds of Tuscarora more than 42 years ago.

As Tuscarora celebrates the past, we also turn our focus to the future. During the weekend celebration, plans were announced for campus-wide facility updates. These changes will help continue the mission of fifty years ago—to serve the Christian community and provide opportunities for worship, teaching, counseling, and physical refreshment. We have also begun dreaming about new program opportunities, which will bring new people into the Tuscarora family, but most importantly bring new hearts to the Lord.
Just as the Tuscarora of today has grown beyond the expectations of the founding board members, I ask that you pray with us that God’s vision for the next fifty years is bigger than anything we can imagine. To God be the glory!

Brian Abrahamsen serves as executive director of Tuscarora Inn & Conference Center.
