Are you spiritually dry? Need to recharge? Looking for meaning or purpose in life? Are you looking for deeper Christian friendship and fellowship? Then Mount Carmel’s August Camps for Adults of All Ages are perfect for you!

Be strengthened in your faith through high-quality Bible study and stimulating conversation with your peers. In the evenings, Mount Carmel offers worship services with quality preaching from guest preachers and music led by our very own gifted musician, Patsy Baglien. In the afternoons you’ll enjoy all the fun of camp: pontoon rides, campfire, board games, and a talent show.

We offer a variety of housing options from air conditioned lodge rooms to quaint cottage cabins overlooking the lake. All have their own private bathroom and comfortable beds.

Camps for Adults of All Ages typically run from Monday afternoon through Thursday mornings. 

Experience uplifting concerts and silly talent shows. Visit the local winery or go shopping downtown with friends. Play some golf, soak up some sun on the beach, or go on a pontoon adventure around Lake Carlos. Make new friends or renew old ones. Commune with God, nature, and with one another in this mountain top experience, all in the name of Jesus Christ!

August 15-19 // In Christ a New Creation

Guest Speaker: John Rasmussen, Guest Preacher: Mark Jamison

Christ has invaded your life! In Christ you are a New Creation! As Paul says, “You were buried…with him by baptism into death, so that as Christ was raised from the dead…, you too might walk in newness of life” (Rom 6:4). Jesus says, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the Kingdom of God” (John 3:5). To say that you are a New Creation in Christ is to say, “I have been buried and raised with him”; “I have been born again of water and the Spirit;” “I am baptized;” “I am his New Creation!” Join us at Mount Carmel on August 14-19 as we explore these themes and rejoice in the Good News together.
