The camp setting is a powerful medium for sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ and for positive, healthy relationship building. There is something about getting out into nature, and a little adventure that opens our eyes to the truths of God’s word. Without scholarships many children would be unable to experience a week at camp away from the distractions and troubles of life.

Camp is not a solution, it is merely a tool.  The solution is Jesus Christ.  It is our desire for every child who attends Bethel this summer to come to know Jesus personally and for their lives to be radically transformed through their relationship with Him.

Please prayerfully consider ways that you may be able to help us in our goal to make Bethel Christian Camp be accessible to every child no matter of their social or economic status.
