Camphor Memorial Church is a premier church in the Eastern PA Conference of the United Methodist Church. Throughout its 100-plus years, the church has been a spiritual home to many in the surrounding Haddington community through its outreach ministries to the poor, children, youth, and aging adults while advocating for civil rights, equity, and justice.
