We Are Christ-Centered
Carolina Creek is an independent, non-denominational camp ministry inviting people to know and experience the love of Jesus Christ. We major on the majors and minor on the minors, focusing on Christ’s love and directing complex doctrinal issues to parents and pastors.
The Bible Is Our Source Material
Camp provides countless ways to learn using all of our senses, our hearts, minds, and imaginations. We mine the teachable moments that are created by activities, dramas, games and being in nature. Time alone with God in His Word, small and large group teaching and discussion, worship through music and movement all allow campers to come alive to God in His revealed truth through Scripture.
Our Creek Staff Is Second To None
Specialized activity and support staff ensure that counselors get to focus on loving kids and processing every part of their camp experience. We are diligent in hiring young adults who love Jesus and kids, are exemplary role models and will cherish your child all day, every day.
Safety Is Our First Priority
We work closely with consultants, licensing agencies, vendors and advisors to ensure best practices in emergency procedures, medical care staff recruiting and hiring, activities, food service and security. We strive to keep kids safe physically, emotionally and spiritually.
We Cultivate Partnerships
Carolina Creek values the work of the church and will do all that we can to make the camp experience an integral part of your year round ministry. Let us know how we can build on your foundation and help your campers take the next step in their life with God, whether through attending a Carolina Creek camp or creating one of your own. Call 936.261.8334 for rates and options.
