Personal life

Camp grew in a Christian atmosphere, as Jeremy's father, Tom Owen Camp, married to Terri Camp, is pastor at Harvest Chapel in Lafayette, Indiana.

Camp has been married twice. His first wife, Melissa, was diagnosed with ovarian cancer and died in 2001, when he was 23 and she was 21. Some of his early songs reflect the emotional ordeal of her illness. "I Still Believe" was the first song he wrote after her death. He wrote "Walk by Faith" during their honeymoon. In December of 2003, he married Adrienne Liesching, former frontwoman for The Benjamin Gate. They have two daughters: Isabella Rose Camp (born September 25, 2004) and Arianne Mae Camp (born April 5, 2006).
