Letter From the Director
Dear Campers, Parents and Supporters,
Bear Creek Camp is a very special place where God’s love for all people is evident.
Please take a look around our website and learn more about who we are and what we do.
We invite you to “join in the fun” of BCC by attending a summer camp session, a family camp weekend, our Women’s retreat or one of our “Connect” weekends for youth.
Bear Creek Camp is a great place to meet new friends, grow in your faith, worship, pray, hike, climb, swim and have fun! 2014 marks our 40th year of ministry at this site and we are thankful for all the ways that God has blessed this camp and impacted lives.
I’m very thankful for the opportunity to lead Bear Creek Camp into the future – a future where all are welcome and invited to explore, celebrate and grow in God’s creation.
Yours in Ministry,
Year Round Staff
