Established as a Spiritualist community in 1894, the Southern
Cassadaga Spiritualist Camp Meeting Association™ consists of
approximately 57 acres with 55 residences. Those who reside here have
chosen to share in a community of like-minded people where they can
live, worship and work in harmony with their beliefs. About 25 of the
Camp’s residents are mediums who offer counseling from their homes.
Although residents may own their homes within the Camp grounds, the
church retains ownership of the land. And, though the word
"Camp" appears in it's name, there are actually no camping
facilities available. "Camp meeting" is an antiquated
term for annual gatherings of religious groups.
Designated a Historic District on the National Register Of
Historic Places in 1991, the Southern Cassadaga Spiritualist Camp Meeting
Association is the oldest active religious community in the Southeastern
In recent years, Spiritualism has seen a resurgence of interest. The
"New Age Movement" has attracted many who are searching for a
better way of life, those who wish to empower themselves and take
responsibility for their lives.
Spiritualism holds something for everyone, no matter what their
religion or where they are on their spiritual path. The Camp welcomes
not only believers, but the curious and skeptical, as well.
