Covenant Camps and Conference Centers
The Evangelical Covenant Church has a profound and enduring legacy of camping ministry that spans back to the early 1900s. Our 19 camp, retreat, and conference centers offer sacred spaces, transformative experiences, and diverse programs for people of all ages, enabling them to escape the demands of daily life and attentively listen to the voice of God. We believe that Covenant camps are among the most effective resources for fostering discipleship, nurturing spiritual growth, and developing future leaders in the faith. They serve as an indispensable and integral aspect of our collective ministry.

Partnerships & Projects
Collectively, campers at ACCCC member camps have given just under $1,000,000 over a multi-year partnership with Serve Globally. These funds have gone toward the acquisition of land, development of facilities, training of leaders, and equipping of programs for campers (and more) at Bible camps in eight of the Covenant’s global mission fields. Member camps are now forming partnerships with some of these overseas sites. This partnership with Serve Globally not only raises funds, it raises awareness of other countries, cultures, and the work of God within them.
Every third year, when the denominational Covenant gathering of high school students known as Unite occurs, the ACCCC collaborates with Make and Deepen Disciples in the creation of follow-up materials and events for both students that have newly placed their trust in Jesus Christ and those that want to solidify another step in the journey of spiritual formation. Camps and conference centers are consistently working on effective means of helping attendees internalize their “mountain-top” experiences with God through Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit.
As a co-sponsor of the annual NextGen Conference, held immediately prior to the Midwinter Conference, the ACCCC is working with Make and Deepen Disciples on components of the event for the equipping of both local church youth workers and those that do youth work in a camp setting.
The ACCCC writes an occasional curriculum, theological papers, articles for the Covenant Companion, and members provide each other with sample documents, references, and recommended contractors for outsourcing services.
