Cocolalla Lake Bible Camp is located in

beautiful north Idaho.

Positioned on the north end of lake Cocolalla and surrounded by trees, it is an ideal place to get away from the distractions of life.  The lake offers a wonderful setting for people to gather to hear God's Word and enjoy the beauty of God's creation.

Our Mission

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.

Our Goals

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

We hold to the great foundational truths of the historic Christian faith, held in common by like-minded evangelical Christians with whom we share both fellowship and the mission mandate.


  • We believe that there is one God, creator and sustainer of the universe, existing in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
  • We believe that the Bible is the verbally inspired Word of God, is inerrant in the original manuscripts and uniquely infallible, our only authority for faith and practice.
  • We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His substitutionary sacrifice upon the cross, in His bodily resurrection, in His victory over sin and His enemy Satan, in His present exaltation at His Father’s right hand, and in His personal return, at any time, in power and great glory.
  • We believe in the fall and lostness of man, whose total depravity requires that he be regenerated by the Holy Spirit for his salvation.
  • We believe that salvation consists of the forgiveness of sins, the imputation of Christ’s righteousness, and the gift of eternal life, received by grace through faith alone, entirely apart form works.
  • We believe in the ministry of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life, and by whom the Church, the Body of Christ, is gifted and equipped to serve and glorify God.
  • We believe in the bodily resurrection of all mankind: those who have trusted in Christ, the ultimate Judge, will receive everlasting life and blessedness in heaven; those who have not will receive everlasting punishment and separation from the presence of God.
  • We believe that Christ has commanded His Church to preach the gospel to all people, and that this mandate should be a primary concern of all Christians.
