We invite you to come and experience Indian Creek Baptist Camp. The camp is located in beautiful Southern Indiana and has approximately 300 acres. The heart of the camp consists of 100 acres of green plush meadows and 70 acres of hills and forest known as “The Ridge.” The camp has 5 great fishing lakes and is surrounded by Indian Creek, which in one mile, joins into the Ohio River.
You will find that the scenery is beautiful all year round. Our facilities will accommodate approximately 450 to 500 campers. The facilities include 12 camper cabins, 2 staff cabins, and 5 leadership cabins, (all cabins are air conditioned and heated), a “log cabin style” dining hall (with spacious meeting rooms, a fireplace room and a very well equipped kitchen), a 500 seat and 200 seat open air tabernacle, a 450 seat serene amphitheater, an awesome water activity and swimming area, RV hook ups, sports fields, mini golf course, Frisbee golf course, hiking trails, game area and much more.
The heartbeat of Indian Creek Baptist Camp is to “Know Him and Make Him Known”! We want each camper and counselor to come as they are but to leave as “He” is! We pray that each one will grow, repent, get a vision, be strengthened and encouraged, discover God’s calling, experience the presence and love of Christ, be saved, or whatever their need may be, and will leave camp being “conformed to the image of his Son”! We truly want each one to have a desire to be like Jesus!
In 12 years of youth ministry, I always desired to be a part of a meeting like Thursday night. I have heard stories and testimonies from people who had been, but I have never experienced it. Now I have. Not only were we part of a “divine” service, our young people were moved like no other time in my years in the ministry. Tears from guys and girls gave evidence of soft and tender hearts.
We had a great camp week, hearing from Bro. Charlie Clark. There were a lot of good decisions that were made. Our teens are still on FIRE for God. When we got back home that Friday after camp the teens were begging me for an activity the next day, so I gave in. Our activity consisted of preaching and prayer. They loved it and some said it was the best! Our young people have fallen back in love with Jesus (camp does that). Thank you for all you do at Indian Creek Baptist Camp and may God continue to work there and at Shawnee Baptist Church. P.S. – Since camp we’ve had three young people surrender for missions, one to go to Bible College (and is there now), and one to be a pastor.
After 18 years of taking teens to summer camp, I cannot begin to express how important the week of camp is to the spiritual life or our teenagers. It is by far, the most important week of the entire year for us at Franklin Road. With that being said, I am so thankful for the ministry of Indian Creek Baptist Camp. Without fail, our teens enjoy their time there involving themselves in the program offered; but without a doubt, the fire in the pulpit during the service times is by far the most distinguishing aspect of Indian Creek. I highly recommend this great ministry to every youth ministry in America! The results speak for themselves!
