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 after. 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.

2021 Summer Theme

For the Lord is good and His love endures forever; God’s faithfulness continues through all generations.—Psalm 100:5
God’s love and faithfulness is with us all the time. This summer we will explore the ways God was faithful to people throughout the bible and the ways God’s love impacts our lives today. We can carry God’s love into the future. Join us for an amazing summer of friendship, fun, and fellowship.
