When is the 2017 Camp Session?

ANSWER:  August 6th through the 12th.

Camp 'check-in' is from 3pm to 5pm (MST) in the Dinning Hall.  Campers should arrive within this time period to get there bunk assignments, settle-in, and meet their fellow campers.  Campers will need to then go find their bunk, get unpacked, and get to know their counselors for the week.  We technically begin at 5pm Sunday night. 

Pick up time will be Saturday morning between 7am and 8am.  We need to get everyone off the camp premises by 8am so that the campgrounds can prepare for the next camp that will be coming in later.

How much is camp this year?       

ANSWER:  $170 before July 16th or $190 after. Unless you are two or under, then you are free.  Due to an increase in facility charges this year there is a slightly higher registration to cover these costs.

Online Registration for Camp will open April 3rd and close on July 30th.  Anyone wishing to come to camp needs to register before the 30th of July.  After that, you can register at camp, but, we make no guarantees as to where you will be sleeping.  Click here to register now.

Can I Make a donation to BHBC?

ANSWER:  Yes, donations are collected and used for Camperships.  These are camp scholarships that help families with financial hardships cover their camper's registration costs.  We encourage you to pray about this opportunity to help a child attend camp and grow closer to God. Your generous contribution would be greatly appreciated.  *Click Here* to make a donation.

Who do I contact with more questions?

ANSWER:   Ask us at bhbiblecamp@gmail.com 
Everything flows through that email address as someone who probably knows the answer will respond. In fact, if you need to contact a camper during camp, you can send an email to that email address and we can pass on the information.

What should I expect at camp?

ANSWER:  A very blessed week!

Spiritually FocusedThis is a wonderful week of rest, encouragement, worship & study.  We come together twice a day for chapel.  The acapella singing in worship is a very uplifting time of praise and it sounds tremendous. There are classes for everyone - Pre-campers, youth, college and adults. In addition, all our teachers do an excellent job of preparing to share God’s word in a very encouraging and relatable way.

A Peaceful Cabin Life – This is the ideal facility and it fits our group perfectly with many cabins ranging in age and size.  Each cabin has electricity and has several bunk-beds with quality mattresses.  Some bunks are singles, while others have a double mattress on the bottom.  You will want to bring sleeping bags or bedding. Larger cabins include a bathroom and shower facilities while the smaller cabins are built near a shower & bath house. A few of the larger cabins have a common area with a refrigerator and kitchenette.

Our Host – Kamp Kinship is secluded near the heart of the Black Hills. The amenities include a dining hall which our BHBC volunteers serve three delicious meals a day. The Chapel becomes a main area used for worship and to get in out of the weather.  In addition the camp features a low-ropes course, climbing wall, zip line, a lake for swimming or fishing, a large field for games, as well as a gaga pit, and volleyball & basketball courts. The surrounding hills offer lots of hiking, scenic views and beautiful starry nights.
