About Us

Effectively helping others know Christ better
About BCC

Beartooth Christian Camp is located in the foothills of the Beartooth Mountains. We sit on 220 acres of land that borders Custer National Forest. Whether you are looking to send your kids to an action-packed camp for a week during the summer, a retreat with your church family, or even a place to have a family reunion, we are the place for you! With family friendly activities and removal from a technology consumed world, everything here is guaranteed to help you grow closer to Christ while spending time away to be refreshed!

Location

Boasting a rustic campus set in the beautiful foothills of the Beartooth Mountains, Beartooth Christian Camp offers campers and guest both a chance to enjoy a true wilderness setting and to focus on Christ far from the noise and distraction of more urban environments; while still being located with driving distance of Montana’s two most vibrant cities. The school is a welcoming environment for hikers, off-roaders, and equestrians, as well as students who desire the quiet and peaceful lifestyle that come from living in the wilds of Montana.

Summer Camps

The activities are wild, the music is powerful, the people are real and the gospel is preached at our Summer Youth Camps. From elementary student to high school graduate, we have a program for you. Come and spend a week in mountains learning about the one true King and unplugging from the distractions of everyday life. Beartooth Christian Camp is the place where fun and excitement can lead to amazing life-change!
