About Summer Camp

As we continue to adapt to the changing situation, we are committed to implementing necessary health and safety procedures as required by federal, state, and local guidelines. We will continue to release updated guidelines and policies for our Summer 2022 camping season as needed and communicate those with our camper families and community through this website and via direct email.

Bear Creek Camp’s residential program, for all children who have completed grades 1-12, is a traditional camp program centered on spiritual growth, outdoor living and small group development. Each age group experiences a mix of small-group and all-camp activities throughout their week to meet their group’s spiritual, social and developmental needs.

What do we do at camp?

Most camp sessions begin on Sunday afternoon and end Friday afternoon. Campers spend their time living and playing together: swimming, boating, hiking, worshipping, playing games, discussing their faith, camping, making arts and crafts, learning about the environment, singing and much more.

Where do we live at camp?

Campers live in a cabin according to their gender and grade. Each cabin is paired with another to make a Quest Group. Quest Groups form the campers’ main family group for their time at camp.

2022 Summer Theme


I pray that you and all of God’s people will understand what is called wide or long or high or deep. I want you to know all about Christ’s love, although it is too wonderful to be measured. Then your lives will be filled with all that God is.
—Ephesians 3:18-19

This summer campers will enter the hopeful and saving story of God and God’s people. They will experience the good news of God’s boundless creating, loving, and merciful power for them in their lives. Just as God was loving and faithful at the time of creation, then in the life of Israel, then through Jesus Christ, so God continues to be in this world now.
