Winter Camp

No need to wait for summer to come to camp! Alpine Winter Camp features tubing, skiing, or snowboarding on West Virginia mountain snow—but that’s just the beginning. Three sessions with a dynamic speaker will give you plenty of encouragement from God’s word. Crazy games will keep you laughing and cheering for your team. Just bring your Bible and a friend; we’ll provide the food and lodging and three days packed with fun!

Features

Alpine Winter Camp includes lodging, four hearty meals (no meal Friday evening), an engaging speaker, gym sports, an indoor climbing wall, and games. Saturday activities consist of tubing, skiing, or snowboarding at nearby Winterplace Ski Resort. Caring students from Appalachian Bible College serve as counselors for individual campers and for groups in need of extra leaders.

Come a day early and preview Appalachian Bible College! Experience campus life, attend classes, and stay a night in the residents halls. Find more information and register for the Winter Camp PREVIEW at abc.edu/experience.
