General Info

Our Mission

The mission of South Mountain Baptist Camp is to assist the Church to reach people for Christ and to develop young disciples that will be effective in impacting our culture and carrying the gospel throughout the world.

Statement of Faith

We believe that the Bible is the inspired Word of God and that it is of supreme authority in all matters of faith and conduct. We believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God and that salvation is a gift of God that comes by faith in Christ. We believe in the virgin birth, atoning death, bodily resurrection, and coming return of Jesus. We believe the Holy Spirit is our seal of redemption and the indwelling power within every believer to live the Christian life. (For a more complete statement of our beliefs, please see the Baptist Faith and Message, 2000.)

What is special about South Mountain Baptist Camp?

At SMBC, staff & worship leaders provide strong, loving, consistent Christian leadership in a heart softening, safe atmosphere. Campers are guided, challenged, & stretched to become who Christ created them to be & to yield to His plan for their lives. Every element of the camp experience is prayerfully chosen that God’s Spirit might be free to move & campers free to respond to His voice. At SMBC drawing campers into a relationship with Jesus is our number one priority.

Why is SMBC right for my church?

Bible-Based Program – Campers are immersed in God’s Word throughout their camp experience. The quiet times, Bible studies, messages, & devotions are written fresh each year.

Delicious Meals – SMBC has a reputation for serving food that campers and counselors love. You won’t go away hungry!

Full & Creative Program – We offer an entire program of ministry – teaching, music, skits, video, games, & more to make your camp experience complete. We do all the work so your chaperones are free to enjoy the camp experience & build relationships with your campers.

Great Service – While SMBC is not a resort, you will find your stay here clean and comfortable. If it’s not right, we’ll make it right. We love to serve you!

Smaller Camp Size – We limit our camp size to 225 participants. We value relationships & our smaller camp sizes enable our staff to get to know & interact with you.

Cost – SMBC charges less than most comparable camps. That is possible because many churches and individuals invest in God’s ministry here so every child might be able to afford a camp experience.
