Each summer six camps for youth are conducted on the Grand Oaks Campground. They are planned and sponsored by our Member Associations. Registration is through each individual Association and their member churches. Contact a local Southern Baptist Church to inquire about registration forms or contact the Baptist Association directly.
If you are looking for a camp session for your student, but are from outside our member areas or not affiliated with one of these churches or your own camp date just doesn’t work, you may still inquire about attending a camp. Most of our camp weeks have room and are happy to accept extra folks into their week of camp.

introduction to camp
June 23-24, 2023
For Grades Completed: First, Second and Third
Introduction to Camping is a great way for children not old enough to attend a full week of camp on their own to experience what camp will be like. We offer an overnight stay with all the activities one would encounter in a normal week of camp. We encourage a parent(s) to join their child(ren) so that both the parent and child know what it will be like at camp. It is a great bonding time not just with other campers but each other.

Some Facts About Camp
Q: Who is in charge of each group?
A: Each group scheduling an event at camp needs to appoint a director to be in charge. The director reports to the resident manager when your group arrives.
Q: Does an adult have to be in each cabin?
A: We want kids to have a blast here at camp! We do ask that an adult (21 or older) be present in any facility where children or youth are staying or playing. A second leader older than the campers should also be assigned.
Q: What happens if damages are sustained to the cabins or facilities during our stay?
A: We have a couple procedures put in place, just in case. At the end of your event, the resident manager and your group director will inspect all facilities you used. Any damages will be billed to your rental group.
Q: Are there any campfire restrictions?
A: Campfires are one of the best parts about camp! The camp manager will start a fire for your group at your desired time. Firewood is provided by the camp for use in designated areas only.
Q: Do you have a lifeguard on staff for the pool and Steen Lake?
A: There is nothing better than a refreshing swim on a hot day or a fun ride on a paddle boat! We do have lifeguards on staff. Any group using the pool or lake needs to schedule days and times that they would like to use the pool or paddle boats at least a week in advance. This allows us to ensure there are plenty of lifeguards on hand. We do not permit visiting groups to provide lifeguards except in extreme circumstances
Q: Are there any items not allowed at camp?
A: We want you, and everyone renting, to have the best stay possible. In order to do that, we ask that you not use or bring alcohol, tobacco, illegal drugs, firearms, fireworks or pets to the camp grounds.
Q: What do we need to bring if staying in the cabins?
A: Just like any ordinary camping trip, guests staying in the Cabins must supply their own linens, pillows, towels, and other personal items.
Q: Can I come for a tour of Grand Oaks Camp before committing?
A: Absolutely! We would love to host you for a tour. Contact us and let us know when you’d like to visit.
