Independent Baptist Camp is a youth camp for local churches run by a local church. We are grateful for the friendships developed over the years with churches who have partnered with us. They will tell you that our camp has a great balance of activities, recreation, and spirituality. Our goal is to have an atmosphere that is Godly, refreshing, & exciting. Please feel free to contact me or my assistant with any questions or for more information. Your input and ideas are important to us. May God bless you and your youth.
