Parent Letter

      MVL Bible Camp is committed to providing campers an exhilarating and fun experience away from all electronic toys and games. All of our activities and crafts are  carefully planned to challenge the campers to have fun interacting with other campers away from these everyday things. And so, we insist: the use of the following items will be strictly regulated at Camp:


  • Personal music devices


      Campers may bring their music to camp.   HOWEVER none of these music devices may be taken to or used during a planned activity and they will need to be careful not to offend their cabin-mates or counselors with music that is too loud or distracting during their free time.

We also reserve the right to look through your child’s suitcase(s) if we suspect they are hiding anything that should not be in Camp.  


 (Please do not send so many letters that they start to become homesick.  AND, if you do send a letter, you may want to mail it before camp begins. 

Ask them: “How many NEW friends have you made?”  Or   “What activities are you involved in?”  We will encourage them to write to you also.


      Campers who wish to fish will need to be sure to bring along the proper equipment. Counselors Brad & Mel will lead the fishing at 5:30 am or during the afternoon swim time. 


      Biking will follow the bike trail's provided on the grounds and will be led by a counselor.  Campers may also bike to other parts of the State Park under the supervision of the counselors.  No one may bike or fish by themselves.
