Beulah Youth Institute BC233$255.008 - 13 6/17/2018 - 6/23/2018 Register  

We invite you to join us at Beulah Youth Institute for a week of Christian growth and fellowship.  Your days will be filled with worship, individual and small group Bible study, food, and fellowship! 

You will have six to eight seminars to choose between daily as well as several recreation options.  Our seminars cover a wide range of topics and although most are co-ed, there are options for gender specific topics offered on certain days.  Our recreation options include, but are not limited to:  team sports, individual athletic games such as Octoball, board games, card games, and crafts.  Our days are jammed packed so you will want to dress casual and comfy for most of the day.  After recreation and/or evening activity there will be some down time so you are able to get cleaned up for our traditional evening worship.  Dress clothes are NOT required for evening worship; however, traditionally our students (especially the ladies) enjoy getting a little dressed up for the evening services.

While many churches attend as a youth group bringing their own sponsors and staying in church owned cabins, we also offer dorms and dorm sponsors to accommodate campers coming without their youth group or sponsors.  The new dorms were built in 2017 and are ready to be filled!

This year at camp The Great Romance will be leading worship.  Gabe and Sarah Wanck will be our morning speakers.  Our Evening Evangelist will be Bishop Frank Beard.  You won’t want to miss this!

If you are interested in Beulah Youth Institute but still have questions before making your final decision to register, please e-mail Bridget Douglas at mrsdouglask4@hotmail.com   I would be happy to answer all of your questions to make your 2018 camping season the best it can be!

Beulah: The Beginning BC213$105.002 - 4 6/29/2018 - 6/30/2018 Register  

“Jesus Transform Me” is what we want the prayers of our children to be this year at Beulah the Beginning Camp 2018. We’re going to search throughout the scripture on how God can help us change our hearts, our minds, where our feet go, what our hands do, what comes out of our mouths, what goes in our ears, what our eyes see, and what our will is.   It’s going to be another awesome camping experience full of eight Bible stories like you’ve never heard them before.  This year of transformation will open your kid’s eyes to the glory of God and help them understand how God makes everything new.  Your kids will be captivated through hands-on Bible stories, energetic games, creative crafts, movie night in the Tabernacle, wild & wacky water games, and meaningful worship.  We hope you’ll join us on this exciting adventure as we gear up to let Jesus transform us!
