Youth Resident Camps

Come and experience all that Crescent Lake Bible Camp has to offer! Challenge yourself on the 36-foot-tall climbing tower or our 35-foot-tall High Ropes Course; learn to ski, tube, and wakeboard; throw down against the Staff in a game of Hocker; or get in on a scenario game in paintball! Crescent Lake Bible Camp offers all of this and so much more as part of their Summer Camp programs! We offer all of the traditional camp activities like archery, arts and crafts, boating, riflery, and swimming. In addition, we offer a lot of “non-traditional” activities, too, like giant soap bubbles, blacksmithing, slacklining, teambuilding, and literally hundreds of more games!

Combine this with dynamic praise bands, inspiring Chapel speakers, caring staff, and opportunities to discover who God is and who He wants them to be, your campers will have an experience like no other! From first-time campers to seasoned “veterans”, Crescent Lake Bible Camp has the program to meet your children’s needs!

Join us on May 6th at 9:00 a.m. for an Open House!  Get a chance to climb the tower, take a tour, shoot archery, and play some putt putt! 

2023 New Adventures

Summer Camp is Crescent Lake Bible Camp’s favorite time of year, and nearly 80 years after it started, it is still the highlight for hundreds of kids each year. Activities include archery, arts and crafts, basketball, campfires, climbing tower, crazy camp games, nature hikes, night games, swimming, tubing, water-skiing, making friends, and eating tons of great food! Campers get to choose three activity periods that will give them a chance to try new experiences, develop new skills, and learn to build self-confidence. (Programs are taught by trained instructors who will work with campers of all abilities to help them to learn at their own pace.)

Calling all Junior High students! Come and experience the best week of your life! Your program offers the chance to choose two daily activity periods for personal growth and one round of team competitions. During your program, you will have the chance to try new activities, develop new skills, make new friends, and find out more about the awesome God we serve! Young Crusaders are also able to participate in both our Paintball programs and High Ropes Courses, as well as all of the other camp activities. Chapels are led by dynamic praise bands – complete with a full sound-and-light show – and our speakers actively work in youth ministries from around the country.
Hey Teens! This Summer, learn about God, develop your personal skills, find other teens who share your interests, and challenge yourself to consider who you are in God’s eyes. Like other camps, Teen Conqueror campers get to participate in a skills class and play in team competitions. In addition, our “Equipping Track” will give you the opportunity to learn from our trained staff about Christianity and serving God. Want more? We have tons of activities including our 36-foot-tall climbing tower, giant board games, high ropes course, nature trails, swimming, tubing, waterskiing, paintball and, well…more!

Teen Wilderness

Trip This 4-day, 3-night Backpacking Trip has been designed for students who want to unplug and enter deeper into the heart of God in His creation. The elements of a beautiful setting and a group of campers desiring to know God deeper while unplugging from our busy society and plugging into our Creator is a great combination for transformation. Through solo experiences, the challenge of long hikes, and the fellowship of other brothers and sisters in Christ, campers will have a variety of ways to dig deeper into who God is. There is no prior outdoor experience required, just a willing heart and adventurous spirit, so come as you are and invite your friends! We even provide all of your technical and group equipment and gear.

Your journey will begin with Crescent Lake Bible Camp’s partner, Northern Lakes Impact Center, where you will meet your team. Then you will travel to our starting point where you will spend 4 days on the trail learning the fundamentals of living in the wilderness. As you travel, you will learn technical skills such as how to pack a backpack, understand and read a map, navigate on and off the trail, prepare and cook in the backcountry, and enjoy and take care of God’s beautiful creation. This unique wilderness experience will create opportunities for practical leadership skills, spiritual and friendship growth, having new adventures, and leading you to gain more confidence and skills useful beyond your wilderness experience.
