Camp Theme: Rooted

Take a moment to look at the trees and plants around you. Did you know that what you see above ground is really determined by what is hidden underground? The bigger and healthier the roots are, the bigger and healthier the trees and plants are. In the same way, our faith and our walk can only be as strong as how rooted we are in Jesus Christ. He is our lifeline as the Bible says “in Him we live and move and have our being". When the winds and storms of this world assault us, we find that "He gives power to the faint, and to him who has no might he increases strength". So "cast your burden on the Lord, and He will sustain you: He will never permit the righteous to be moved". Trust and put your faith in Him and say "He only is my rock and my salvation, my fortress; I shall not be shaken". Take root and walk in Him!

About Our Camps

The first Bible camp was held at Loma Mar, a Boy scout camp in 1957. It began as a ministry of Chinese Bible Church in Oakland and a way to get away from the hectic life in the city. In the early years the staff did the cooking and the campers did KP. As the camp grew it moved to Meteor Ranch at Clear Lake. As more churches were planted, the camps continued to grow. Other churches in San Francisco, Sacramento and Stockton also joined the camp program.

Today, about 450 junior and senior high school students from some 12-14 churches attend the weeklong camps resulting in the salvation and dedication of scores of precious young people. Over the years it moved from different locations, but it has held its camps at the Mt. Hope Bible camps over the past 40+ years. Starting in 2013, the Senior High Camp was moved to Mt. Gilead Bible Conference Grounds in Sebastopol, CA. The Junior High Camp continues at Mt. Hope Bible Conference Grounds in Challenge, CA.
