Day Camp Experience

My daughter said this was the best camp she has ever been to. She can’t wait to come back again. Each day when I picked her up she looked tired and happy after her full day. Up until this point, Maddy has had children’s Story Bibles. The camp checklist prompted us to...

VISIT MOUNT RAINIER

Tall trees, snow-capped peaks, enchanting forests, and more! Black Diamond Camps is located among some of the best hiking trails and scenic views in the Pacific Northwest. Even if you’re just passing through, there are countless opportunities to have your own adventure while you’re here! Just ask one of us and we’d love to share with you all the great places to explore with your group. We live the adventure, and so should you!

As people come to us from all over the country (and sometimes beyond), our goal is to proclaim the Gospel and provide an opportunity for God to move radically in the hearts of those who earnestly need Him. We are always looking for others to join us in stepping into the unknown, the uncomfortable, the messiness of human life and who are willing to learn what it means to serve others humbly and wholly.
