Beaver Creek Bible Camp represents an association of faithful Christians who have organized a doctrinally sound camp for young people. We are currently using the facilities of the Beaver Creek Reserve (a county-owned facility approximately 10 miles east of Eau Claire, Wisconsin). Summer sessions have been held since 1997--touching the lives of young people from six Upper Midwestern states. BCBC is overseen by the Elders of the Crystal Lake Church of Christ in Crystal Lake, Illinois. The purpose of the camp is to spend a week in Bible study and fellowship with young people from throughout the Upper Midwest. The camp is open to children ages 8-18.
Spiritual activities include Bible study, singing, and prayer. Other activities include archery, crafts, volleyball, hiking, canoeing, swimming, basketball, compass course, group games, relay activities, obstacle course, air rifles, study in a well-equipped nature center, and the use of Wisconsin's third-largest telescope in the Hobbs Observatory.
The Beaver Creek Reserve includes 360 acres of woods, prairies, and streams, as well as a river, falls, and sandy beaches. At the heart of the Reserve is a professionally-staffed modern Nature Center--including a discovery room with hands-on learning stations, interpretive displays, live animal exhibits, resource library, gift shop, science laboratory, and an auditorium. The youth-camp section of the Reserve includes the main lodge (containing a modern commercial kitchen and a large dining hall), five heated cabins that can each sleep 20 overnight guests, a large cabin (with kitchen, living room, and sleeping areas that can accommodate 30 people), a tenting area, heated shower house, and a staff cabin.
At camp, well-qualified Christian teachers and counselors work under the direction of Baxter Exum (minister for the Four Lakes Church of Christ in Madison, Wisconsin). The staff includes cooks, Bible class teachers, activity coordinators, and other necessary personnel to provide safe conditions and worthwhile activities. A professional naturalist directs the activities in the Nature Center, and trained astronomers from UW--Eau Claire coordinate the program in the Hobbs Observatory. If you would like to volunteer for a future session, or if you would be willing to provide special financial assistance to this valuable ministry, please contact the Director.
BCBC 2014 will be held June 28 - July 4, 2015! The camp is open to campers ages 8-18.
