GLEN LAKE CAMP AND RETREAT CENTER
strives to create a Christian
environment where authentic relationships are formed. Our Mission is to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.
Glen Lake Bible Camp is an opportunity for children grades 3-5 to come and learn about the Bible while enjoying the adventures and joys of camp. Campers will go through Bible Discovery and Bible Exploration.
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 two-year program, with our first year being Bible Discovery. Bible Discovery is targeted for 3rd-4th grade first time attenders. Together we will open the stories of the Bible and learn skills necessary to navigate the Scriptures. The second year, Bible Exploration, for campers 4th-5th grade explore the stories of the Bible with some previous knowledge of the Bible. We welcome first year 5th graders into Bible Exploration. Churches sending campers are asked 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 either from their church or as those who registered individually.

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 when staffing a minimum of 2 Summer Staff per cabin. We train and certify staff to lifeguard at our water activities and our Zipline, climbing wall, and low ropes. We follow state camp licensing requirements. Glen Lake also has a Camp Nurse that provides medication dispersant, first aid, and works with families to determine the course of action should an illness arise. Glen Lake is also less than 1 mile from the Glen Rose Medical Center should the need arise for more 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. Dinner offers a hot option and dessert along with a full salad bar and various drink selections. In an attempted to prevent dehydration Glen Lake does not serve soda at meals, nor does it sell soda in our Snack Shack. 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.
If you have any questions about Bible Camp, please contact our Program Director, Patrick Turkett. We would love to share about Bible Camp and get you and or your church signed up!
