Kootenai Christian Service Camp

Family Camp

Ziden Nutt, the man who started Good News Productions International, was our special Speaker for Family Camp 2017. We are sorry we did not have more advance information, but we are happy to present all 7 of Ziden’s messages from this year in their entirety. Family Camp at Kootenai Christian Camp is a great time of fellowship, worship, recreation, and inspirational Bible-based teaching and preaching. Group sessions are held morning and evening, with afternoons left open for various family activities. A few canoes will be available on a first-come basis. If you’re planning to bring a larger boat for your own use, we recommend launching at the State Park across the lake. Classes for younger children will be held during group sessions. There are no other organized and/or supervised children’s activities, so parents will be responsible for their children. All minors attending Kootenai Christian Family Camp MUST be accompanied by an adult that will assume full responsibility for the child. Family camp registration is $35 per family, and $20 for singles. This helps cover some basic overhead (transportation costs for our speaker, insurance, diesel for the generator that provides electricity for the camp, etc.). We will also be taking up a love offering for our speaker. Meals are provided by the camp from supper on Friday through lunch on Monday. Estimated actual cost of meals is $2.50 per person per meal. Your free-will offering is appreciated. The kitchen will NOT be available for individual use. A modest variety of candy and soda will be available at the camp store, which will be open at various times. Kootenai Christian Camp T-shirts may also be purchased there. Some cabin space is available on a first-come basis. Each family must provide bedding for all family members. The cabins are not heated, and nights CAN be chilly, so plan accordingly. We have a number of places where RV’s can be parked, some of which have electrical hookups. There are no water or sewer hookups, and there is no dump station available. To reserve either cabin space, RV parking, or both, please use the online registration form or contact the camp manager.
