Camp Good News


56 Years of Camping

We are dedicated to providing a well-rounded program for your child. While carrying out the Indian theme, we endeavor to meet the spiritual, mental, social, and physical needs of each camper. Our program consists of Bible class, missionary emphasis, crafts, swimming, fun time, chapels, and special features. In 2019 there were 5 camps held with 230 children enrolled. There were 11 children who trusted in Christ for salvation and 14 who consecrated their lives to God’s service. To make these camps possible, more than 100 people volunteered of their time and resources in various capacities.

Words Worth Sharing

It was an incredible privilege and joy to work with your ministry at Camp Good News. From morning staff meetings to taps each of those days were filled with fruitful ministry for the kingdom of God. As I worked there God brought to my mind the passage where Jesus spoke of loving children as “the least of these my brethren.” Your ministry has truly taken that promise and many others to heart as you have shown God’s love and shared His message to children from all walks of life.  —A Camp Counselor
