Buffalo Mountain Camp is Closed for Camps and Retreats this Year.
Buffalo Mountain Camp and Retreat has been in ministry through summer camps, environmental education, and retreats for over 64 years. Due to the continued impact of a flood (See Project: Recovery tab.) in 2012, the Board of Directors has made the decision to suspend operations for 2014 beginning in January. Camp leadership wants to be good stewards of the limited resources available to determine the direction and look of camping ministry. We will spend 2014 working hard, with God's help, to capture the new vision for ministry. We have a great opportunity to reinvent camping for our community and churches. Please stay tuned and follow us on our Facebook page, which you can click on at the top of this page. Thank you for your continued support and prayers. We hope folks looking for summer camp options in 2014 will check out our sister camps:
