Located in the mountains of western North Carolina, Camp Timberlake is a Christian summer camp for boys. We strive not only to provide a summer of fun and recreation but, in a larger sense, to develop a boy’s character so that they will be stronger mentally, physically and spiritually.
Boys want a mission to accomplish, because they are made to be challenged, to grow and succeed. Each morning we wake up ready for breakfast and each night we go to bed tired from the day’s adventure. In between we share meals, go to a short chapel time, participate in activities and play a big camp-wide game each night. Anything can happen during these evening activities, from Sock War to Pirate Ball, from the slip-n-slip shaving cream war to Commando, but each one is sure to be a blast.
A Christian Camp
Camp Timberlake is a traditional camp that believes that we are called to do all things to the glory of God. We believe that it pleases God when we teach our activities, plan our summer camp program, foster friendships, serve our meals and build our cabins with excellence as the standard This is especially important in choosing staff. All of our camp counselors are chosen to serve in Christian leadership.
Children come to camp to have fun. We believe the happiest environment is one in which the love of Jesus Christ is displayed by the staff and experienced by everyone.
A Place to Grow
Nobody wants to fail, ever, and they especially do not want to fail in front of their parents, or the opposite sex. A single-gender camp is one of the only places that children have the freedom to try things that they do not expect to be successful in. The result is that they often discover sports they love and wonderful talents they possess. The freedom to fail is one of the most important parts of our best successes.
A positive attitude is projected throughout the day. The emphasis is on do, rather than don’t. We believe that we were given a wonderful world and we have a lot of fun living in it.
