Camp Sumatanga Update

The Sumatanga staff and volunteer teams will focus on upkeep in Pool Camp, the Retreat Centers, Hutto Auditorium, Hundley Dining Room and McKinney-Atkins, making the needed improvements. Conversely, the following buildings will be closed after November 25, 2019: Lodge sleeping rooms, Eva Walker, Guest House and East Wing sleeping rooms. At this time, there is not a timeline for reopening those areas.

Emmaus Pilgrim lodging will be relocated to Retreat Centers 1 and 2. Additionally, the Camp is now open February – October to further reduce costs. As a result, there are now Emmaus Walk dates in June and July. 

The Action Team has given much consideration to the Alabama Emmaus Community. Stay in touch with your Alabama Emmaus Community Board Members for updates to this continuing transformation of Camp Sumatanga.
