Who they are
Central Florida Bible Camp has been serving youth, churches and families since 1956. Its purpose is the spiritual, physical, social and mental development of youth and others through Summer Camp and retreat programs. Approximately 900 children and 375 volunteer staff participate in nine sessions of camp every summer. Hundreds more attend various weekend retreats, recreational and fundraising activities, and church or family outings throughout the year.
Programs and activities during CFBC’s summer camp sessions focus on three areas important to a child’s spiritual development:
FUN, FRIENDS AND FAITH.
Summer is the busiest time of year at Central Florida Bible Camp. Nine summer sessions are held, generally from the first week in June through the early part of August. Each session is coordinated and staffed by volunteers who are all faithful members of churches of Christ. These servants love the Lord, love kids and love Bible camp. They have a passion for serving and a compassion for kids and are great Christian examples. Over 1,000 campers and volunteers will participate in the summer camp sessions.
Where they started
In 1956 a small band of faithful men and women began with a dream and a rented campground. That dream would grow into a reality of service for generations. In 1965, seventy-eight acres of land were purchased in Eustis, Florida and the Central Florida Bible Camp was given a permanent home.
Many of the men and women who are part of the camp’s founding generation are no longer on this earth, yet they have left lasting footprints on the grounds of CFBC. We are standing on their legacy of ministry and service. Because they gave of themselves, the children of Florida have a place to grow spiritually, emotionally and relationally. Generations have come and gone from the grounds of CFBC. Thousands of adult men and women are who they are today, due in part to their childhood time at the Central Florida Bible Camp.
Over the years, CFBC has become so much more than a place for children. While the youth of Florida continue to be its primary focus, it is also a place that promotes the whole person. Through summer camps, retreats, seminars and special events, CFBC walks with a person throughout their life.
Central Florida Bible Camp is built for generations.
