WHO WE ARE


Mount Carmel Ministries is a place of rest, renewal, and recreation where people experience Jesus.
Our theme statement is “Jesus Only.” We welcome all people, no matter what religious background they come
from or what beliefs they have. We live out our mission through biblically-based, Christ-centered programming
and hospitality. Our signature ministries include the following…

Family Camp

We are a summer camp for families of all shapes and sizes where you can create memories and reconnect. We take care of you! Family camp is a vacation with no pre-planning needed, no cooking (unless you want to), and plenty of free time with and without the kids. You will leave feeling rested, spiritually renewed, and reconnected as a family.

Mornings have age-specific learning. Afternoons are filled with a variety of activities including swimming, family olympics, boating, tie-dye, arts & crafts, hiking, and naps! Evening programming includes campfire, talent show, outdoor games, worship, and an evening treat at the canteen.

Camps for Adults of All Ages

It’s Bible Camp for adults of all ages! It’s like Family Camp, but we don’t have programming for youth. Be strengthened in your faith through high-quality Bible study and worship, enjoy the conversations, and have all the fun of camp: pontoon rides, campfire, board games, and a talent show!

Lakeside Bible Initiative 

We invite you to come to Mount Carmel any time of the year for Bible study, fellowship, and recreation. Come and join us each day as we gather to pray and study God’s Word from 9:00 AM – 11:00 AM through the Daily Text and special weekly programming. Then, enjoy the beauty of God’s creation, take time to read or relax, or enjoy activities with your family and friends.¬†

Congregation Weekends

Mount Carmel Ministries is offering congregations an opportunity to strengthen their ministry with solid Biblical teaching in a beautiful retreat settling. We have a series of retreats that teach the entire Bible. Each retreat will focus on renewal, awakening faith, fellowship with our brothers and sisters in Christ, and enjoying God’s creation.

Retreat Center

Mount Carmel is a year-round destination for ministry-related retreats, business or family events. The Chapel seats 300 people, with multimedia capabilities, flexible seating, and air conditioning. Additional meeting spaces in the lower level provide classroom and boardroom-type facilities with modern technology – audio, video, and internet capabilities. 

The Lodge includes a custom food service, seating for 200, a library, lounge, sauna, and flexible meeting space. Ten hotel style, air conditioned rooms provide comfortable overnight accommodations. Additional housing includes 35 cabins of different sixes, all with their own private bathroom.
