Camp Bible-Way

Camp Bible-Way 2024!

June 10-14, 2024

The theme is “Discovering God’s Greatness: A Stellar Adventure” with our theme verse being Psalm 147:4-5. The cost this year is $250 per camper. (this includes a t-shirt) Pastor Andy Sturm, pastor of Central Baptist Church in Amelia, Ohio will be the Jr. Camp evangelist and Pastor Joe Webber, who pastors Brooks Baptist Church in Elizabethtown, KY will be the Sr. Camp evangelist.

Summer Camp! The memories that come back to us when we think on the many summers of our youth are so precious! I often fondly recall the many summers that our pastor took us teens to youth camp in Kentucky to spend a week of fun and instruction. I have seen many young people saved and called to ministry in youth camp meetings. When I became pastor at Bible-Way in 2011, I was excited to have the opportunity to continue working with camp Bible-Way. It is truly an honor to be a part of the great heritage of Camp Bible-Way.

Please accept this warm invitation to join with us this summer as we enjoy our 28th year of youth camp! Camp Bible-Way conducts both Jr. and Sr. camps on the same week on the extensive and modern property of Higher Ground Retreat Center in West Harrison Indiana. The campground is about an hour and twenty minutes from Indianapolis and only thirty minutes from downtown Cincinnati. All of the buildings are modern, clean and air-conditioned. There is also a large activity building for rainy day games, a pool and two large football fields where outdoor games are played.

We are prayerfully looking for more churches to partner with us at camp Bible-Way. We are just a small handful of churches working together to spiritually and socially strengthen our youth. Pastor Chris Kaiser, of McGregor Road Baptist Church in Acton, Indiana is the director of the Jr. Camp while Pastor Ron Pittman of Bible-Way Missionary Baptist Church directs Sr. Camp. Other churches also supply helpers, preachers and counselors. If you are looking for a spiritual, separated, Godly environment for your youth and children, then please consider joining us this summer for camp!
