There are many ways YOU can Join the Legacy at Raccoon River Bible Camp. The stories are endless…multiple lives have been changed for the glory of God! If you would like to volunteer, give or serve here at RRBC, please let us know! You can email us at email@example.com.
At Raccoon River Bible Camp, we aim to give staff and campers, young and old alike, an opportunity to know God more, see Him at work in their lives, and grow to love Him in their day to day lives beyond camp. The Bible is our central focus as we share the gospel, encourage in discipleship and provide a way to serve God in unique and growing ways.
We are honored that you have chosen Raccoon River Bible Camp to be a place to meet your deep spiritual growth needs in a camp setting. We are committed to seeking God and giving Him the glory for all of His work at this camp.
RRBC SUMMER CAMPS
REGISTRATION DEADLINE for ALL CAMPS: June 1, 2018.
The summer weeks are a prime time to give your child an opportunity to disconnect from the everyday norm (and technology) to enjoy a fun-filled, safe and Bible-focused week. With two chapel services a day (one including an emphasis on missions), plus opportunities to develop the skill of individual Bible Study, our goal is for our campers to go home excited about God’s Word and committing to be in it more, submitting themselves to His will. Our counselors and staff are also highly tuned in to being available for our campers as they grow in their faith.
