Teaching the Word of God has always been a huge part of what we do. With Bible Institutes in 13 locations around the world, our desire is to reach a new generation of world changers.
Whether you want to get away in the Adirondacks or head down to sunny Florida, Word of Life camps has options for you. Though the locations are different, our commitment to provide you with solid Biblical speakers, top-notch musical talent, and an amazing location to get away won't change.
Word of Life is an international organization with active ministry in over 60 countries and over 1,100 missionaries. Last year alone, over 160,000 people made professions of faith through the various ministries around the world. To God be the glory...great things He is doing!
With missionaries spread around the country, Local Church Ministries is focused on helping local churches accurately teach God's Word to their youth. We supply the Bible curriculum and then help train your leaders to teach the youth of your church the truths of God's Word.

* While many campers come each week for the featured specialty, it’s not a requirement. There will be loads of teens each week that are just there to hang out, have fun, and grow in the Lord. Don’t worry, if you’re not into paintball, extreme biking, or whatever else is scheduled, you can still come for that week and have a blast!

We strive to maintain a safe, supportive, and Christ-centered camping environment. In order to ensure this environment, campers who are registered for four or more weeks will be evaluated after their second week of camp with the intention of ensuring that both the camp and camper’s needs are being met. Parents, or guardians, will be informed of the child’s progress and whether or not further action may be required.
If a camper’s behavior cannot be accommodated at our camp, the parent’s will be notified of their dismissal and a refund will be issued for any unused weeks of camp.
Passports are required for all campers who are not US citizens. Upon arrival your camper should give these documents to the camp office for secure storage.
Should the need arise, a parent or guardian must be able to reach the camp property within 48 hours. If this is not possible a secondary contact is to be designated to do so.
