Program areas at Black Lake Bible Camp

Black Lake Bible Camp (BLBC) exists to be used by God in the physical and spiritual formation of youth, families, and communities. For more than 75 years, BLBC has been a beacon of physical and spiritual hope in the Pacific Northwest. BLBC designs and hosts camping experiences that enable our guests to step away from the demands of everyday life, and seek renewal, joy, and hope in Christ. BLBC primarily serves youth ages 6 to 18-years-old, but we also extend our services to adult groups. The programs that BLBC internally designs and implements for youth are Summer Day Camp, Summer Residential Camp, Winter Camp, and Outdoor Education. In a typical year, BLBC serves approximately 6000 youth through our Summer programs; 2000 youth are served through our Winter programs; and 200 youth through our Outdoor Education program. BLBC also internally designs and implements an annual Mens Retreat and an annual Womens Retreat through which we serve approximately 500 adult guests. In addition to programmed camps, BLBC provides rental services to youth and adult groups, year-round totaling an additional 2000 guests per year. As part of our program, BLBC actively trains and equips the next generation of ministry leaders as each summer we seasonally employ an average of 80 high school and college-aged individuals. We mentor them in servant leadership principles and help them discover their role in the broader church body. Despite COVID lingering through 2021 which affected the number of guests willing and able to come, Black Lake Bible Camp was able to serve over 5,000 guests and remain financially stable. We look forward to a healthier year in 2022 and the ability to serve a multitude more guests to the glory of God!
