Important Notice: We will not be conducting a regular camp schedule this year due to my plans to hike the Appalachian Trail (AT) this summer. We will resume a full schedule of camps in the summer of 2018. We will be changing the format of this site to reflect my AT plans, trips I take, equipment reviews, etc. Please check back frequently to see what’s new.
Welcome to the Bear Mountain Outdoor Education web page. Thank you for taking time to spend a moment with us. Let us tell you a little about who we are. We are a small youth and children’s ministry which has a big heart and a dynamic vision for changing lives through outdoor activities, personal relationship, team building, leadership development and practical application of the Word of God. We are all about hands on learning in the great outdoors.
During the summers we typically offer several camp opportunities including: God’s Thumbprint Nature Camp for ages 5-11, Endurance Camp for ages 12-17 (grades 7-12), Jr. Endurance Camp for ages 8-11, and Music Camp for ages 5-17.
Throughout the year we offer opportunities for small groups, schools, home school families and groups. We design programs for individual groups in areas from nature and science to outdoor math to team building and physical education. Please contact us to find out what we may be able to offer to your group or family.
Bear Mountain Outdoor Education (BMOE), directed by Allen Bennett, was founded in 2001 as a ministry to allow youth and children to experience the outdoors not only as a recreational environment but as its own self-contained classroom. It is our desire to use this outdoor classroom to creatively bring these youth and children closer to Christ and to equip them to evaluate what God wants to do in and through their lives.
In order to accomplish this tremendous task BMOE is aligned with the ministry of Mountain Creek Community Church. We come under the covering and direction of the Sr. Pastor, Robert Summers, and the Church Elders. Most of our completely volunteer Christian staff are members of MCCC.
