The Camp Methodist Church is a historic Methodist church on Arkansas Highway 9 in Camp, Arkansas. The church was built in 1878 to serve the Camp Methodist Congregation; it was constructed by local carpenters in a vernacular style with Gothic Revival features. A school operated in the church building until 1914. In the 1980s, church services were briefly cancelled due to the shrinking congregation; former church members rehabilitated the church in 1983, after which services began again.[2] The church was added to the National Register of Historic Places on May 9, 1997.[1]

The building was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1997.[1]
