Dear Camp Family,

Hope fuels us. It keeps us going in the most difficult and challenging times. And it’s what we need now more than ever. 

We have watched our world and prayed for a swift and quick solution to the rapidly changing COVID-19 situation, and there’s not an easy answer. 

That’s why it’s with a heavy heart, that we announce we are canceling camp this summer 2020. 

Please know that we did not make this decision lightly. 

We sought the counsel of many including our board physician and Director of Health Services to ensure the health and safety of the entire Camp Barnabas family, as well as the long term mission of Camp Barnabas.

“I pray that God, the source of hope, will fill you completely with joy and peace because you trust in Him. Then you will overflow with confident hope through the power of the Holy Spirit.” - Romans 15:13 

Please know our staff is working hard to respond to all questions as quickly as possible. Thank you for your continued love, prayers, and support. We know God is in control and we find hope in Him.

How Can I Help?

First, we covet your prayers as we navigate this difficult season. Please pray that God would allow Camp Barnabas to continue to serve our campers, missionaries, and community long into the future. 

Second, please consider giving a gift. Donations have declined significantly. We’re working hard to make sure camp is here for many years to come, and your gift will make a huge difference in sustaining our ministry.
