Big Lake Youth Camp
Building relationships, learning new skills, and having fun in a positive environment has been Big Lake’s goal since 1962. Each summer our carefully selected staff lead hundreds of young people from over 15 countries on a seven-day journey of adventure.
Life can be unpredictable. Culture and society changes, but Big Lake offers a constant in the lives of young people. This constant is the love of Jesus that permeates everything we do. Our Christ-centered program illustrates that faith in action is fun! Our campers continually report that the awesome excitement of learning new skills is only topped by our even more exciting Christian campfire programs and newly made friendships.
A week at Big Lake provides campers with the environment and the opportunity to gain better self-awareness, set and achieve goals, and have a blast. We offer friendship, encouragement, adventure, and enough fun to make memories for a lifetime.
