While our summer camps and year-round retreats are attended by people from around the Midwest and beyond, Upper Peninsula Bible Camp is also investing in the lives of those within our local community. 

UPBC exists to introduce people to Jesus Christ and to encourage them to grow to be more like Him through camping and outdoor experiences. One of our goals is to serve and involve those who live near camp. Are you looking to get involved at camp or to try a new camping experience? Check out our programs and volunteer opportunities below.  Have further questions about getting plugged in? Feel free to call 906-346-6165.

Day Camps take place in June and August. The programs run from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., Monday through Friday. These daytime-only camps are for kids in local communities who are heading into 1st–8th grade (ages 6-13).
