* Try Camp Sessions

What do we do at camp?

Most camp sessions begin on Sunday afternoon and end Saturday morning. 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?

Try and Juniors Campers will stay in our cabins with modern bath facilities. Middlers and Junior High Campers are in our NEW CABINS, with Seniors staying in platform tents. Campers will be with 6-8 other campers according to their gender and year in school. Each cabin or tent is paired with another to make a Quest Group. Quest Groups form the campers’ main family group for their time at camp.

2018 Summer Theme

For by grace you have been saved through faith, and this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God.
—Ephesians 2:8



God’s sacrifice and love for us CHANGES EVERYTHING. This summer we will take a look at how our changed hearts can lead to a new identity and purpose which will impact our community and worldly perspective. Join us for a life changing adventure at Bear Creek Camp!
