The ministries of Cocolalla Lake Bible Camp are devoted to preaching the Gospel of Christ to people of all ages and to making disciples of Jesus Christ.


Cocolalla Lake Bible Camp is dedicated to providing a God-centered environment for Biblical teaching, evangelism, and missions.

The camp is also committed to providing a loving (agape) atmosphere where people can learn and exercise their spiritual gifts.  We strive to assist churches and Christian organizations to better equip Christians for the work of the ministry. (Ephesians 4)

Our purpose is to develop a body of believers that will attract people of all ages, backgrounds, and cultures so that they might be confronted with the truths of God's Word and be challenged to surrender to His will.  We also desire that people become better acquainted with the camp at work in the world, and in the community of Cocolalla.

The ministry of Cocolalla Lake Bible Camp is born out of calling, commitment, and sacrifice.  Through excellence and commitment in their professional and spiritual lives, our board and staff strive to be effective witnesses for Jesus Christ.

It is our mission that everyone we come in contact with would be refreshed, restored, and revived; singing the words of the song: "I'd Rather Have Jesus Than Anything!"


The Christian Camp should provide opportunities to:

  • Deal with campers as individuals, discipling them personally in the areas of their spiritual need.  John 3:5
  • Encourage definite spiritual decisions at the level of the camper's readiness.
  • Help establish good habits of Christian living: prayer, Bible reading, and study, and witnessing.  2 Timothy 3:14-17; Acts 1:8, 2:42
  • Help establish sound health habits: cleanliness, rest, diet, exercise, and a good attitude toward the body as God's temple.  1 Corinthians 6:19
  • Learn outdoor skills as a means of developing character.  1 Corinthians 10:31
  • Learn the ability to get along with others unselfishly.  Romans 12:9-21
  • Learn responsibility for one's own decisions.  Galatians 6:4-9
