Campers at Badlands Ministries are placed in small groups with young adult counselors who guide them through each day of activities. Our ministry strives to bring our Christian faith to the reality of today's children and youth, and our summer programs emphasize faith growth, relationship building, love for God's creation, and developing young leaders.

We hope this summer is a time for your whole family to grow in faith through this experience! Parents are welcome to tour the camp when you arrive for check-in and to participate in our closing worship on the last day of camp. Parents are also encouraged to utilize campers' Manna Books in the weeks following camp to share the camp experience as a family. We believe that the home is a very special place for the faith formation of your child, and are proud to be your partners on this journey we call faith.

Badlands Ministries strives for excellence, if you have any comments, concerns, or questions regarding
our camp programs, staff, or policies, please do not hesitate to contact us immediately.
