About Mountain fellowship
Mountain Fellowship Camp is a 205 acre Christian Camp established in 2012. We are a 501 (C)(3) non-profit organization. The camp’s vision is to provide facilities and space for groups to have Christian fellowship in a safe, comfortable, outdoor setting. It is a place for all ages to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ, grow as Christians, and be challenged to serve God.
We specialize in groups from 25-200, including Church Camps/Functions, Bible Studies, Group/Family Camp Outs, School Groups, Retreats, Family Reunions, Ministry Events, and Weddings. Come and enjoy God’s creation in a quiet, peaceful setting surrounded by thousands of acres of National Forest!
Our Mission & Vision
Our vision and mission is to help connect people to faith
Mission & Purpose
Simply put, our purpose is to glorify God by loving the Lord our God with all our heart, mind, soul, and strength, to love our neighbors as ourselves, and to share the good news of Jesus Christ.
To fulfill that purpose, we feel it is our mission to provide an affordable place for Christ-centered fun and fellowship in a rustic outdoor setting allowing people to take a break from their busy lives and enjoy each other in God’s glorious creation.
God has truly blessed us as stewards of this beautiful property. Our hope and prayer are that everyone who visits the Camp will grow closer in their relationship with God. To date, many, both young and old, have accepted Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior while visiting the Camp. Please pray for us as we work to serve the Lord and that many more lives will be forever changed.
