Located on 100 acres of woodland at an 1800-foot elevation, Bethany Birches offers a wilderness camp in a Christian environment. Spiritual components of the program include Bible lessons, prayer and fireside discussions. Campers share daily responsibilities (such as gathering firewood and cooking meals) and participate in nature hikes, group games, and arts and crafts. Outpost camps for older campers feature one- and two-night rock climbing, white-water rafting and backpacking trips.
