About Your Stay

Daily Bible Meetings  

  • Grow and learn together as a family. Leave recharged. 

Home-style Meals

  • Sit back, relax, and enjoy fresh home-style meals.  Put on your stretchy pants, we've got this.  

Exciting Programs 

  • From arts and crafts to activities like hiking, swimming at Gitche Gumee's own beach property, mountain biking, taking off-campus excursions, berry picking, and tons of local sightseeing available, it's easy to find things to do at Gitche Gumee Bible Camp, even if that means kicking back and taking a nice afternoon nap.


  • We provide opportunities for you to attend our morning and evening meetings while allowing your children to enjoy a program of their own. 

    • ​Nursery (0-4yr)- Your child will enjoy great age-appropriate opportunities to have fun and interact with other children.

    • Juniors (5-12yr)- We provide a VBS-style program for your child during regularly scheduled meeting times.

What to Bring

  • No need to bring the kitchen sink; we've got that. We also provide sheets, pillows, and blankets. Just bring towels for both beach and room use, clothes for cold and warm weather, and smiles to pass around!
