Who We Are

 Located in the heart of Oak Bluffs, the Martha's Vineyard Camp Meeting Association (MVCMA) is a religious, 501(c)(3) non-profit organization which furthers its mission in an area commonly known as The Campground, home of the colorful, renowned Gingerbread Cottages and the iconic iron Tabernacle.

Here you will find a diverse and vibrant community that celebrates its historic and religious roots, dating back to the early 1800's.

​A National Historic Landmark, the MVCMA has enriched the lives of generations of Islanders, Campgrounders, and  countless visitors, through its many ​religious, cultural, and community programs.  

At the center of the community stands The Tabernacle. Its ability to serve future generations will depend on supporters like you. Click below to help preserve a piece of ​Martha's Vineyard history.
