Summer Camp Schedule Update

Right now, we’re all doing new and unusually hard things. The current COVID-19 situation is fluid and changing daily. It’s testing our adaptability and our patience, and we imagine it’s testing yours as well.

The Bear Creek Camp Board of Directors has reached the difficult decision to delay the start of summer camp. The earliest that summer camp could start is July 5th. This was not an easy decision, but was made after much research, conversation, input from our BCC community, and prayerful discernment with the safety, health, and well-being of our campers and their families as our top priority. This decision does not eliminate the possibility for ministry opportunities later in the summer and we remain hopeful for a summer of exploration, celebration, and growth in God’s creation.

If you currently have a camper registered for camp prior to July 5th (Sessions 1, 2, & 3, including Family Camp and Nature Day Camp), please wait with us. As we are given guidance from the American Camp Association and the Centers for Disease Control over the next few weeks, we will determine the plan for the remainder of the summer. The Board of Directors will continue to meet regularly and will make a decision regarding July and August opportunities by June 1. At that point, we will provide to our already registered families more details about registrations and the summer schedule. We commit to ensuring that every camper who is already registered will have the opportunity to come to camp or will be able to receive a full refund for any fees already paid.

This summer may not look like all the summers that have come before or any of the summers that will come after. What we do know is that camp plays a vital role in the lives of campers, their families, staff and alumni. Our mission and core values remain unchanged.

As more decisions are made, we will continue to provide updates through e-mail,, and Facebook (Bear Creek Camp). Of course, if you have questions or concerns before then, please reach out. We appreciate your prayerful support, just as we continue to pray for all of you.

In Christ,

Collin Grooms- Executive Director
Larry Williams- President, Board of Directors
