Our Mission Statement
Park River Bible Camp is a camp and retreat ministry for all ages that encourages a faith relationship with Jesus Christ through Bible study, worship, music, and fellowship.
We Are a Christ-Centered, Lutheran Ministry
Being a Christ-centered camp, we desire for our campers to have a living faith in Jesus Christ. Being Lutheran, we hold to the confessional Lutheran understandings of faith, salvation, grace, sin, the Church, and the sacraments.
We Are a Diverse Ministry
We offer many different programs for different age groups: Camping and retreating for youth throughout the entire year; a Vacation Bible School program throughout the summer; quilting and scrapbooking/stamping retreats for adults; and fall and spring gatherings each for senior citizens and for citizens with disabilities.
We Have Excellent Grounds, Facilities, and Program Structures
We are located on about 120 acres of property 6 miles west of Park River, ND (about an hour northwest of Grand Forks, ND.) Among our facilities we have a large, newly renovated Chapel and Fireside Room; a year-round Retreat Center with cabins, a gym, a fellowship room, restrooms, and a kitchen; and a Dining Hall. We can currently house about 200 people in our 12 rustic cabins, 5 winterized cabins, and 5 Retreat Center rooms. We also have a swimming pool that is a popular way to cool off, a batting cage, a low adventure course, a high ropes course, and a climbing tower and paintball.
