We will begin Bible Camp on Friday, November 5th at 7:00pm for registration and conclude at 4:00pm on Saturday, November 6th. Please plan for each camper to have eaten dinner before their arrival on Friday. Campers will receive a confirmation letter and packing list for the weekend upon completion of online registration or receipt of registration by mail. Your church must provide the appropriate amount of adult volunteers for this overnighter, to stay with your campers.
Our weekend together will be filled with adventure, learning, worship, and fun. We will spend our day together fishing, hiking, participating in arts & crafts, playing games, learning how to use our Bible in breakout sessions, and worshipping together.
This year, campers will learn about being a follower of God from the obedience of the Israelites that faced Jericho, the story of the tax collector Zacchaeus and his repentance, and from the strength and confidence of Paul in a shipwreck. These building blocks of obedience, repentance, strength, and confidence will help our campers follow God and grow deeper through these Bible stories and beyond..
We are delighted to have Rev. Tina Schramme share with us in worship this year. Rev. Schramme is the Pastor of Grandview United Methodist Church and a veteran of engaging Children (and adults) in worship.

Arts & Crafts
As a child and preteen life is full of new adventures and experiences. Join us this Fall at our Bible Camp to learn more about the the Story of God's love and redemption through the Holy Scriptures in the camp setting.
Campers will awake and experience FUN they will never forget. Bible Camp is a three-year program for 3rd, 4th, and 5th graders. Together we will open the stories of the Bible, learn skills necessary to navigate the Scriptures and explore the stories of the Bible. Churches sending campers are required to provide one MinistrySafe certified gender specific adult per seven campers.
Individual Camp housing is well-situated in the heart of this campus. Our standard and deluxe cabins are walking distance from the Dining Hall, Lake, Sports Courts, and Games Fields. Boys and girls are divided into separate climate-controlled cabins with other campers from their church, and possibly an additional church depending on the amount of campers your church brings.
HEALTH AND SAFETY
Camper safety is of the upmost importance at Glen Lake. Our staff are all First Aid and CPR certified and complete Ministry Safe trainings. We follow Ministry Safe guidelines a have at least two adults per cabin. We train and certify staff to lifeguard at our water front activities. Glen Lake is less than 1 mile from the Glen Rose Medical Center should the need arise for advanced medical care.
Glen Lake strives to provide camper friendly options in our menus. Breakfast offers daily hot options and a fruit and cereal bar option. Lunch offers a hot option and a full salad bar. In an attempted to prevent dehydration Glen Lake does not serve soda at meals. We encourage campers to drink lots of water. Glen Lake does understand the need for special dietary restrictions due to allergies or health concerns. We do our best to provide several options at each meal or provide a space to store or warm up food brought from home. If you have a concern or special dietary restrictions please contact our office and we can work with you to make a plan.
