Kenosee Lake Bible Camp looking forward to 2023 season

The Bible camp says it values families and wants to provide community development opportunities.

KENOSEE LAKE - The Kenosee Lake Bible Camp (KLBC) began in 1960 when a group of men felt the need for such a service in the area.

Since then, every summer more than 600 children and youth come to KLBC to enjoy a fun-filled week of camping and fellowship.

The full-time and summer missionaries are devoted to teaching and sharing their knowledge in a Christian fashion.

They are committed to providing a safe environment which does not allow any bullying.

On June 11, from 2-6 p.m. the KLBC will host an open house. This event is free and offers people a chance to come, enjoy different camp activities and have a burger.

“All in all, it will be a great day full of fun for the family,” said ministry director Clay Wiens.

Through the open house, they will offer classic camp skills, like archery and rock climbing. The indoor pools will be open, and the pontoon boat will give guests a chance to see the lake up close.

For those planning to attend camp this summer, they can complete the open house scavengery hunt and receive $20 off for the week they plan to camp.

OneChurch will also be joining in on the day by having a bouncy castle.

According to Wiens, the afternoon gives potential campers, parents and grandparents the opportunity to see what KLBC is all about.

KLBC says it values families and wants to provide community development opportunities.

Wiens said, “We can not think of any better way to do this, than getting together with family and friends, and enjoying a day at KLBC.”

Campers that have already signed up often come out during the open house to meet staff.

This year the open house will show the changes at the camp with the newly expanded and renovated dining hall.

The last time the dining hall saw renovations was in 1987 when the kitchen needed to expand for the growing camp. Now over 30 years later, it needed to expand again to accommodate the growing numbers.

This expansion will also enable the program to run four seasons, allowing them to impact more lives in a Christian way.

KLBC feels it is important to show God’s love, share God’s truth and to build God’s family.

The grand opening ceremonies will be held at 3 p.m.

This project was over $1 million and included expanding the dining room, building a new kitchen and storage area. A bathroom and year-round office were also added.

This project was completely funded by donations, and they would like to thank those who have supported this project so far and give them the opportunity to come and see what they have accomplished.
