Independent Baptist Camp consists of several local, Independent Baptist Pastors and Churches who have joined together to provide a unique and spiritually refreshing week of Bible camping. Since 1990, Independent Baptist Camp has offered a tremendous week of Christian camping and old-fashioned Bible Preaching for young people. We make no bones about it: at IBC, young people will be challenged in their Christian lives, will forge life-long friendships, will learn much in the way of practical Christianity, and will be delighted by the fun activities of the week.
Independent Baptist Camp convenes annually at the beginning of June in the mountains above beautiful Ogden, Utah. While somewhat rustic, the campground is surprisingly modern, with plenty of hot showers, modern bathroom facilities, and a full kitchen staffed by volunteers from participating churches. Staff is carefully screened and selected from our own congregations, and most staff members have dedicated this week for many, many years now. Through years of working together in this important ministry, the camp staff has developed a kinship and camaraderie that is both genuine and refreshing.
The young people who attend literally have the opportunity to “grow up together.” Year after year, we have the privilege of welcoming many of the same faces of young people who come year after year. Those young people who move away to other states will often fly back, just so they don’t miss this wonderful week.
Some of the most important decisions a young person can make are made at camp, and we love to offer counsel and guidance to our young people as they come year after year. Because we host our own camp, Pastors and Youth Pastors have the opportunity to counsel their own young people, applying their own personal relationship to the decisions at hand. At Independent Baptist Camp, you will not be disappointed by the spiritual growth, the renewed devotion, the soul-searching decisions, and the delightful memories that will be made.
Let us extend a warm welcome to you. We might be exactly the kind of camp you were looking for. We hope so. And if we are, we hope that you will consider bringing a group to our camp this summer!
