A small group of lay people felt that Camp Meeting is a very important experience for families and decided to organize a long weekend version on the SVA campus. With the Conference’s permission and the Lord’s leading, a group came together to plan this event.
With no outside financial assistance, the projected budget is approximately $32,000. We prayerfully ask you to support this event! Checks may be made out to “Valley Tent Revival” and mailed to the New Market SDA Church with Valley Tent Revival in the memo line, 62 West Lee Highway, New Market, VA 22844. You may drop off donations at the church office or the Shenandoah Valley Adventist Elementary School.
The RV campsites, Cabins in the B & C rows, and rooms in the Girls’ Dorm will be available to rent during Valley Tent Revival.

Each day following the evening program, there will be a short activity. Check the VTR Bulletin for specific activities and where to meet.
Living Well (formerly ABC) has changed their structure for camp meetings. They will no longer be setting up a store during the traditional camp meeting events. They will be providing a Living Well Camp Meeting Order Sheet around May 1 which we will post on this website as soon as it’s provided. You may order from that sheet and have it shipped for FREE to the New Market SDA Church. Items will be shipped on Wednesday, June 18. Upon your arrival you may pick up your items.
In addition to Living Well, the New Market SDA Church Community Services Center will be open, for our campers convenience. The center has a variety of vegetarian foods. They carry Worthington, Loma Linda, Cedar Lake, Gardien, Vegenaise, Companion and other products. The center is open during Valley Tent Revival (hours to be confirmed). Cash and checks are accepted. No credit cards. All checks should be made out to the New Market Seventh-day Adventist Church.
Every evening at 5:30 p.m. during supper, there will be slide show on the wall with lots of photos taken from that day! You won’t want to miss this delightful time and fellowship!
Each morning at 7:00 a.m., join our seasoned walkers and runners for a wonderful valley adventure. This walk will be approximately 5 miles or less and will go at the pace of everyone. Tim LaPierre and Esther Lipscomb will lead you on this adventure!
