1ST-3RD grade

JULY 6-8


We are so excited to be offering this brand new camp for summer 2022. First Chance Camp is a very unique camp in the sense that it is shorter than our other camps and it is intentionally programmed for our youngest group of campers.  Over the course of 3 days we give first, second, and third graders a taste of what camp is like.

First Chance Camp gives younger kids 3 days to experience camp in a safe and fun way. Your son or daughter will be poured into by incredible leaders who will take them on some exciting adventures over their stay at BCC, and along the way many friends and memories will be made.  There will be worship, teaching, and activities all tailored for their age.

This year’s theme for First Chance Camp is “For Eternity And Beyond.”  Jesus loves us so much more than we think, and His love goes beyond our understanding. We are asking the question “How much does God love us?”  Diving into Jesus’ life kids will learn about the love of Christ, how he showed us that love on earth, and how He promised to love us “For Eternity And Beyond.”

Caleb Hamilton

Caleb comes to First Chance Camp with a plethora of children’s ministry experience.  From growing up as a pastor’s kid and watching hid dad minister to kids for most of his childhood, to becoming a pastor and doing children’s and youth ministry for the past 10 years, Caleb has a BIG heart for kids.  As a storyteller, Caleb loves bringing the Bible to life for kids, and he is never short of energy to have fun, dance around, and be the BIGGEST kid in the group.

Caleb is married to his best friend and amazing wife Sarah and has 4 kids… Kloey (6), Klara (5), Briggs (3), and Boeman (1).

Just before his junior year of high school Caleb felt a clear calling from God while he was at Beartooth Christian Camp (BCC) to be a pastor and pursue full-time ministry, which changed the trajectory of his life completely. After high school God led him to attend Yellowstone Christian College to major in Biblical studies, and from there to serve in Absarokee, MT for 3 years as their children’s and youth pastor. From there God brought his family back to Billings to work at Faith E Church as their youth pastor for 4 years.  All throughout his college and early ministry years Caleb was deeply involved with BCC in programming and directing camps.

He currently serves as the Church Relations Coordinator at BCC and lives in Billings with his family.  Caleb works with churches and groups across the state of Montana.  His heart is to network with leaders from all denominations and walks of life in the hopes of connecting churches to camp as well as partnering with local youth and children’s workers to put on impactful camps for their students. 

Caleb loves Jesus, people, and camp!  He is always down for a fun time, especially if it involves anything to do with Star Wars, Marvel, or Disney.  Before God called him into ministry Caleb was going to work at Disneyland as Buzz Lightyear, but God had other plans.

His passion is to be a catalyst in the world for Jesus Christ! To encourage, equip, and empower followers of Jesus to be Jesus to their family, friends, and neighbors.
