When is Ministry Camp?


What is Ministry Camp?

Ministry Camp is a 5-day long outdoor minister's training course. Learners will learn a Survival and Outdoor Skills curriculum, how to apply it Biblically, the Biblical model of outdoor discipleship, and how to minister salvation, deliverance, and healing to others. Learners shall be issued a Ministry License and/or a Certificate upon completing this course. 

What is the cost of the Ministry Camp?

$650 covers the cost of training, food, field trip, and graduation. We highly recommend having your local church sponsor or split this cost with you so you can bring this blessing back to your local community quickly. 

What are the sleeping arrangements?

Primitive Camping is all we offer. You may use a tarp, tent, hammock, or any variation of these to make yourself a comfortable camp for 5 days. Bring your own cooler, snacks, and everything you need to rest. 1 night will be a required survival camp away from your gear. 

Do we have to know how to cook well or survive?

No, all cooking duties will be shared among the entire group and instructors. You'll learn survival skills as a means of sharing the Gospel. We're just camping! Learn what you can, contribute where you can, and enjoy the fellowship. 

What denomination is the class taught from?

BBI/ Campcraft is a non-denominational, spirit-filled Christian organization. All teaching is directly from the Bible, explained following the first and second-century church, and applied to modern times. Previous course graduates serve in a wide variety of congregations and denominations. 

What is the cancellation policy?

The School reserves the right to cancel individual classes due to low enrollment or various other factors.

If a class is canceled, an attempt is made to notify students and the tuition refund process will be initiated automatically. If a Learner decides to withdraw/cancel, they will receive a refund in the following way:

Once a Learner arrives onsite for a course there are no refunds possible.

What do I get when I complete the training?

We provide each person that graduates the week with:
