Teepee Bible Camp is a non-profit, nondenominational, Bible-based camp incorporated by the State of Colorado.


  • The Camp’s main goal is to present the gospel of Jesus Christ to boys and girls in an outdoor environment, with specially planned activities.
  • Activities include games, crafts, hiking, archery, gaga ball, 9-square-in-the-air, campfires, music, and team-building sports. Special emphasis is placed on Bible teaching and Christian living.
  • Camps are 72 hours long but span 4 days (Thursday-Sunday). They begin at 5 p.m. the first day and end at 5p.m. the final day of each camp. The camp required minimum age is 7 years old by the first day of the camp in which you register. Camps are divided by those entering the following grades in the fall: 2-4, 5-8, and 9-12.


Teepee Bible Camp is a ministry of faith. We will do what is necessary to see that every youth wishing to have a camp experience has that opportunity. Our camp price will remain as low as we can possibly keep it. This is done by using the generous gifts of others who have a heart for children’s camping and ministry.




(Some camp grades have changed)

The camp has a basic statement of faith which is available upon request, or on the website under DOWNLOADS. In keeping with our nondenominational status we do not teach the doctrine of any particular denomination.  We feel these individual beliefs should be taught by the child’s parent and local church.

If your child is enrolled in a summer sports activity in Garfield County that requires attendance at games, we encourage them to still come to camp. We have a very flexible program that allows parents from the surrounding area to pick campers up in time to get them to their game and then return them before lights out.



Each child should bring the following a minimum of $10 additional money to visit the Trading Post. This will entitle them to one food item and one drink item per day. This amount is to be paid upon arrival at camp. If the child does not visit the Trading Post on any given day, the remaining money will be given to the missions’ project. If a child wishes to purchase any Non-food products i.e. hats, stuffed animals, pens, stamps, etc., their parent must place an additional  deposit in their account upon arrival at camp to cover these purchases.
