Ministers Camp

Spend time in creation to worship the One who creates.

A chance to refresh, decompress, and dig deeper with God in His creation. This 3-day getaway is a perfect opportunity for ministers and their families to create their own adventure at their own pace.

Ideal for: Ministers and their Families       |       Ages: All Ages       |       Dates: April 18-20 & October 3-5, 2022

Real One-On-One Time With God and Family

Pastoring can be stressful. No matter if you’re an assistant pastor of a church of 40 or a lead pastor of a church of 4,000, shepherding the people of God can take a toll on your mind and your body. Aren’t you always available to listen and to offer spiritual advice for those in need? Pastors need vacation and counseling too, and oftentimes the opportunity for pastors to recharge is not available or affordable. Whatever situation you find yourself in as a leader, finding time for intimacy with God and your marriage are necessities. Our Minister’s Escape Retreats are specially designed for pastors and their families to take some time away from home, because paying attention to your personal spiritual wellbeing is crucial for a healthy relationship with God.

Experience adventure.

Real Adventure! Unique adventure activities are available during your time at Camp. Inside adventures, outside adventure and tried and true camp classics, Black Diamond Camp has a ton of fun activities.

Bring 3 For Free

We’re excited to offer another “3 For Free” Minister’s Retreat! Bring any three from your ministry for free. Use it as a time to get away, to plan with teammates, to enjoy our activities, to meet others in various ministries, to escape into the woods for some adventure or solitude. This time is YOUR time, and we are here to serve you however we can.

Everything You Need to Know

  1. Glacier Peak Lodge

    Spacious hotel-style rooms with full private bathroom and queen size beds. Adjoining rooms available on limited basis.  

Accommodations are air-conditioned with amenities and bedding similar to what you would find in a typical motor lodge or hotel chain. 

For photos and more details visit the lodging page.

My daughter said this was the best camp she has ever been to. She can’t wait to come back again. Each day when I picked her up she looked tired and happy after her full day. Up until this point, Maddy has had children’s Story Bibles. The camp checklist prompted us to purchase her first real Bible of her very own. She is really proud of her Bible and she will always associate it with the camp.

Again, big THANKS for all your hard work in making our retreat this past weekend a phenomenal time for our students and leaders. We had many students make decisions to make following Jesus a more central part of their lives, and your work is part of that ministry! We’re grateful.
