Two Events. One Amazing Weekend.

The first part of our Labor Day celebration is a Family Retreat that starts on Friday night. Designed to be a step back from everyday pace of life, the Labor Day Weekend activities are completely in your control. We offer activities that range from a 208 foot water slide, to a climbing wall, to a frisbee golf course, to a canoe trip down the Meramec River. You decide what to do and how much of it you want to enjoy, it’s that simple!  Besides all our activities we have a great speaker.  Robert McMurray is our speaker this year for our Labor Day Weekend, as we celebrate our 25th anniversary of Bible Impact being here at Whispering Winds Bible Camp. As the weekend closes, and Monday comes around, we hold our annual Scholarship Fundraiser. With an amazing all you can eat buffet, carnival games, 25¢ concessions and an auction, the hardest part of the day will be prying the kids away to go home!

A Retreat For The Whole Family.

Come Have Fun With Us!

“Ambassadors for Christ!”

As surprise quizzes and exams take the place of the summer fun that slowly becomes a distant memory, camp continues on!  We know what it’s like to go home from camp, both refreshed and on fire for God, we also know what it’s like to feel it slowly fade back into the daily routine of papers and bus routes.

This is why we give you the Fall Teen Retreat. A breath of fresh air, and a chance to catch up with camp friends. A time to be encouraged and challenged by the Word of God.  Set aside a weekend this fall to get away from all the craziness of life and join us for the Fall Teen Retreat.  

We will spend the weekend surrounded by friends, new and old, as we enjoy three days packed full of fun activities and great food.  This year our games and Bible teaching will be based on our assignment as ambassadors. Our  speaker will be sharing with us from God’s Word.

Dates: November 19-21, 2021

Registration from 7-8 PM on Friday, pick-up is 1-2 PM on Sunday

Cost: $55

Ages: 13- 19
