"Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it.” Proverbs 22:6
Since 1942, Pine Bush Bible Camp has been providing the Catskill Mountain region of New York with a safe and beautiful environment for young people to both learn about and grow in God’s love. Pine Bush in itself is a testament to the beauty of God’s creation. A place where one can take in the sights and sounds of all that God has given us, while having an exciting “camp” experience full of fresh air, fun games and friends you will make for life.
With a sprawling 100+ acres of land, Pine Bush Bible Camp is an excellent place to just experience life as it was meant to be lived. There are many facilities for the campers to enjoy including an archery range, a pool with sections for all levels of swimmers and a gorgeous river which is used for numerous activities including canoeing and fishing. Campers are also offered the chance to join classes where they can learn about different sports and crafts of their choosing. They also have the opportunity for some supervised “free time” every day to explore the campgrounds, enjoy a snack with their friends at the on-site canteen or just have some fun being a kid while playing a game or two in our full game room stocked with a number of activities like carpet ball, table tennis and foosball to name a few. Overall, it is pretty much everything a child could ask for in a fun summer experience, built upon the tenants of Christ’s love and teachings.
As mentioned, Pine Bush Bible Camp is first and foremost a Christian Camp at its core. With that in mind we make every attempt to provide a safe and caring environment for every person that enters. We follow simple ideals which include encouraging the spiritual growth of believers and providing opportunities for the development of Christian leadership skills. We also, above all, make it our goal to present the Gospel of Jesus Christ to all those at camp. Christ himself said “Let the little children come to me and do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of heaven” Matthew 19:14 . We firmly stand by His words and hope to be a positive experience within the lives of all Children who visit Pine Bush Bible Camp.
