Why Camp Teepee Pole?

There is something missing in the lives of many boys today. That something is the example of a godly man. So many of our boys live in homes with only one parent – and it is usually the dad that is missing.

This is where Christian Service Brigade can help. The CSB programs provide a means for boys of all ages to be mentored by Christian men as is commanded in the Scriptures.

You have heard me teach things that have been confirmed by many reliable witnesses. Now teach these truths to other trustworthy people who will be able to pass them on to others. – 2 Timothy 2:2 NLT

Summer camp is an important part of this ministry. It an atmosphere where a boy can examine his heart and his relationship with God. It is a time and place where youth respond to the good news of Christ.

As an extension of the year-round CSB ministries, Camp Teepee Pole has a number of advantages over other camps. First their staff have been working with boys all year round – they aren’t just newcomers. Second we have a year round program that provides a natural “follow-up” program for the boys. We don’t just lead them to Christ, then ignore them. Third, the camp is designed with boys in mind. We choose activities that boys like, methods of training that boys respond to, and leaders who can become friends and role models.

Of course there is another reason for choosing Camp Teepee Pole – it is a lot of fun! Our activities are very outdoor oriented and include things like hiking, shooting, archery, white water rafting, rock climbing, mountain biking, crafts and many others. (Not all activities are available for all age levels – we always ensure things are “age appropriate.”)
