Knowing God through His Word & His Creation

Camp Good News is a great place for kids (ages 8 to 13) to get to know Christ, have fun, make new friends, and grow in their faith. Our camp environment invites campers to enjoy the beautiful North Dakotan outdoors through activities like canoeing, swimming, and sports. It’s also a place where a relationship with Christ can develop and bloom in a safe place: Bible classes, chapel sessions, and good conversations with others. Life skills like discipline and teamwork are honed through cooperative team activities as well as practical skills classes.

At camp, we strive to provide the most age-specific programming possible.  Our campers will be placed in cabins and on teams based on the following age groupings:  8-10 & 11-13.

Registration is now closed for 2022! Check back this winter for 2023 dates!
