Memorial Day Weekend

May 24 - May 27

Kick-off our 2024 Summer Conference Season here at America’s Keswick!

Memorial Day Weekend

Friday – Monday, May 24th – 27th, 2024


Our theme is “Embraced: Renewed in God’s Delight” focusing on Zephaniah 3:17 (NLT), “For the Lord your God is living among you. He is a mighty savior. He will take delight in you with gladness. With his love, he will calm all your fears. He will rejoice over you with joyful songs.”


Join us this weekend in remembering the men and women who sacrificed their lives and gave everything so we can have the freedoms we take for granted every day.


Speaker: Dr. Ron Cline 

Dr. Ronald A. Cline has served as a pastor, educator, counselor, leader, missionary, and author, which gives him credibility, experience, and rapport with the many individuals and groups he and his wife, Barb, minister to in various countries each year.

Ron and Barb currently serve as Global Ambassadors with Reach Beyond and live in Southern California after living over 30 years abroad. Ron also helps his son train leaders in his son’s organization, Leader Mundial, the training wing of Extreme Response. Ron and Barb now travel from Southern California throughout the world. For the last ten years, they have been encouraging and working with leaders in Indonesia, Cambodia, China, Singapore, Malaysia, Nepal, Mongolia, India, Philippines, Thailand, Hong Kong, Solomon Islands, Western Samoa, Papa New Guinea, Tonga, Fiji, America Samoa, Australia, New Zealand, Central Asia, USA, Canada, Mexico, Cuba, Haiti, Ecuador, Russia, Malawi, Ivory Coast, and South Africa.



Music & Worship by: Jeff & Sue Duffield

If you know little about the Duffields, aside from the fact that they have new life doing contemporary hymns and even the “Oldies”, you’ve missed out on the exceptional and creative artists they have always been.

Sue not only has an incredible vocal ability, she also writes much of the material they perform. Jeff is a sought-after keyboardist, playing, producing and arranging for well-known artists and ministries. The choice to perform a more jazz, soulful influenced repertoire while mainstream gospel went a more conservative direction, proved to be their signature strength. Their music is rich with many layers. Most will say Jeff and Sue’s hearts are even bigger than their music. In their later years, it’s become quite evident that their real joy is helping other artists and ministries. Their love for Jesus shines in everything they do.

Special Presentation by… 

Piercing Word – “The One Story”

Saturday, May 25th, 2024

Experience the ultimate story of God’s plan for redemption.  Framed around Jesus’ conversation on the Emmaus Road, this piece is compiled of passages from Genesis to Revelation and shows how all of Scripture points to the person and work of Christ.  The One Story incorporates original orchestrations and other artistic elements to bring beautiful clarity to the Scriptures.



Missionaries with JAARS (Jungle Aviation and Radio Services) will be at America’s Keswick over Memorial Day Weekend to raise awareness of, and support for, Bible translation around the world. JAARS provides construction, technology, and transportation services for Wycliffe Bible Translators.



What to expect this summer at America’s Keswick:

  • Morning and evening sessions with our speakers
  • We will be having Children’s and Teen’s Ministry
  • Activities for all ages! Such as guided nature walks, scavenger hunts, a large inflatable slide in the lake, devotions, and more!
  • Delicious meals prepared on campus served in our dining room


Children’s & Teen’s Ministry:

It’s not Sunday School… It’s not VBS… It’s Children’s Ministry – America’s Keswick style! One of our passions is to teach children from a young age who Jesus is, why it is important to follow Him, and how to apply biblical principles to their lives. We take the time to hand-pick fun and responsible leaders who are passionate about teaching YOUR kids. We get to know your children personally so we can teach them at a level that they can understand, and we also have a whole lot of fun along the way.

On top of our biblical lessons, we have high-energy games, creative crafts, delicious snacks, funny skits, and everything in between – all designed to follow and reinforce the lesson for the day. We also spend time preparing for our end-of-week presentation, where you can hear your kids share a passage of Scripture that they’ve memorized and a song that they’ve learned while in Children’s Ministry… but be sure to get there early, because before the meeting we also have a special bell-ringing ceremony where we celebrate the children who have come to Christ that week.

Our Children’s Ministry curriculum welcomes infants through age 11, and ages 12-17 can enjoy our Teen Ministry program. We’re going to have a lot of fun this summer, and we hope you can join us.



Each meal starts with a staff member’s blessing in the food. When you enter the doors to the dining hall, located in the Raws Building, you will be greeted by the buffet line. Guests are able to grab a plate and choose from the variety of options that are available during the course. Most times there are 1-2 main entrée options with 2-3 sides dishes. During breakfast, there is a cold bar that is fully stocked with assorted cereals, milk, yogurt, and freshly cut fruit. During lunches and dinners, we have a freshly prepared salad bar where guests can create their salad exactly to their choosing. Once guests find their seat at a table,  our friendly servers will bring you beverages and help clear away your plates. You will also see our dining room hostess who is available to you at any time should you need any assistance. If you have a dietary restrictions or allergies, please inform your server and they would be happy to help.
