"In 1969, a group of visionaries banded together and purchased Beaver Camp, launching 50 years of community impact and ministry. Former campers and staff went on to become parents and

grandparents, who became teachers, school adminstrators, counselors, pastors, and even missionaries! Each of them is a light in their circle of influence. I am grateful for all that God has done through this ministry and am excited that Beaver Camp will continue to shine a light to future generations of campers and staff!"

 

- Mike Judd, Executive Director 

The collective effort of a few individuals has grown into a year-round ministry with valuable community impact. Throughout our 50th year, we’ll be sharing stories from the founders, paying tribute to favorite traditions, introducing an exciting vision for the future, and more.

A place to grow for 50 years

"...then you will shine among them like stars in the sky." Philippians 2:15
