We have a variety of programs to meet each camper's needs and skill level. Our goal is to help build character, respect, and leadership while bathing the camper in a spiritual atmosphere through the study of God's Word. 

The Wilderness Christian camp was founded in 2003 by, former Youth Pastor, Jason Perlak and his wife in an effort to reach young people for the glory of God. The camp was started with the idea that young people are often bombarded with distractions and need a place to focus on the Lord Jesus Christ.

Programs Range From
Week Long Camps
Multi-Week Programs
Backpacking Trips
Rock Climbing
High & Low Ropes
Survival Training
Character Development
Leadership Training

Every Camper is Exposed to:
Old Fashioned Preaching
Campfire Singing
Scripture Memory
Daily Bible Reading
Character Classes


Statement of Faith  

All churches and individuals involved in instructional ministry, all staff, all directors, and all officers of the corporation must hold to the following essential truths of the Christian faith.

  We believe in the Holy Bible, Old and New Testaments, as inspired by God and inerrant in its original writings, and that it is the complete and final authority on all matters of life and faith.

  We believe in the one true, and living God, eternally existing in three persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit; yet one God. This God is Creator of all that exists.

  We believe that man was created in the image of God; that through sin man incurred both spiritual and physical death. As a result, humanity is totally depraved, alienated from God, under His righteous anger, and in need of a savior; Jesus Christ.

  We believe that Jesus Christ was begotten by the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary, and that He is true God and true man. In Him all the fullness of the Godhead dwells forever.

  We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ, as a representative and substitutionary sacrifice, died for our sins and that all who believe in Him are justified by His shed blood.

  We believe in the physical resurrection of the crucified body of our Lord Jesus Christ, His ascension into heaven, His present life there for us as High Priest and advocate, and His future personal return.

  We believe salvation is only and altogether through simple faith in Jesus Christ and that without such faith there can be no salvation here or hereafter. By the grace of God, all who in repentance and faith receive the Lord Jesus Christ, are born again by the Holy Spirit and thereby become children of God.

  We believe that each believer is called to a life of holiness and perseverance; growing in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.

  We believe in the resurrection of the saved and the unsaved, who will all stand before God in judgment. The saved will spend eternity in the presence of God and the unsaved will be condemned to everlasting punishment.
