October 9-15, 2021

We’re looking forward to another awesome Family Camp centered around the word of God and unforgettable family-time! JOIN THE FAMILY.

2021 Theme:

Courage enables us to pursue truth and embrace hardship with valor. It gives us strength to welcome difficulty for the cause of Christ and to prevail. Our desire is that this year’s Family Camp will inspire encouragement and resolve in Christ, renewed vigor to triumph over trials, and the fellowship of other believers to rise and answer God’s call — “be strong and courageous!” Deuteronomy 31:6

We were able to spend time as a family and with friends. It was especially nice to have time away from our busy lives to just have fun with our kids. Family Camp offers us a place to relax, enjoy fun activities, see old friends, make new friends, and enjoy Christian fellowship.



We had a wonderful time of fellowship with the other home school families. We were really blessed by the wonderful speakers. There is something for everyone. My youngest loved Bible Story Hour. The middle children love carpet ball. The older children loved the hymn class and the Bible assembly project.



This place is a treasure for bringing more [bonding within] your family. We had wonderful experience making new friends, having great outdoor activities, enjoying wonderful nature and growing spiritually.



Our children built stronger relationships with us doing fun activities and spending time together. They were also able to build stronger relationships with other children their age by participating in activities or fellowshipping at the campground. We loved the schedule of activities. It had a great variety of fun things to do and kept everyone happily busy. We also had enough free time to grow as a family and fellowship with others. The rock climbing and rappelling gave my four eldest children a great deal of confidence. They had fun, the staff were encouraging, and they were so thankful that they were able to do it.

Richard & Kimberly


Getting to be on vacation with friends, in a good, wholesome atmosphere, with fun things to do and camp meetings that were inspirational and encouraging is such a great blessing to our family!



We were refreshed by fellowship with godly families. [All of the activities] brought welcomed, structured fun to our camping experience. I really appreciated all the effort, planning and organization.
