Camp Ithiel exists to serve people through Jesus Christ in a place apart for faith and personal development.
When kids, youth, adults and families come to our camp and retreat center, our desire is that they are able to step away from the busyness and distractions of the world and experience God in a refreshing way.
For kids and youth, this means diving deep into Scripture while experiencing the most incredible endeavors imaginable. This means designating time to focus on God as Creator in the midst of playing 9 square in the air, life-size angry birds, swimming, hiking, and making noise—a whole lot of noise. It means realizing the incredible love of God through outstanding counselors and staff encountered each and every day at Camp Ithiel. Most of all, it means coming to know and better understand Jesus. Campers will never forget the experiences they have during our overnight youth camps.
For adults, it means spending a weekend with your kids during Family Peace Camp, enjoying the company of your kids while also being education on Christ’s teachings on non-violence, non-resistance and peacemaking. And, of course, there are those weeks where you don’t have to scream “clean your room!” because your child is at camp with us. Bonus!
At the end of every summer, our staff always feels blessed to have the opportunity to serve people. Whether that through cooking, lifeguarding, being a counselor or working somehow behind the scenes, there is nothing more rewarding than serving people through Christ Jesus. After all, that is our mission. As a camp and retreat center, we are blessed to witness to all those who participate in our youth camps. Learn more about our summer camps for youth.
Ministry in the Non-Summer Months
During the non-summer months, Camp Ithiel’s ministry does not stop. Although we currently do not offer overnight youth camps during the school year, our camp and retreat center remains open to serve various guest groups, weddings, retreats and meetings.
