A Promise Kept
Camp Promise, a camp specifically for those with special needs, began in 1990 and has been growing steadily ever since. At the same time Big Sky’s traditional camps have also grown, while its facilities, built in the late 1960’s-1970’s, have only aged. Due to the limitations of our facility, we are currently able to offer only two weeks of Camp Promise, resulting in full camps and waiting lists for the past several years. Seeing the limitations of the facilities, and the high interest in both Camp Promise and traditional camp, Big Sky Bible Camp has decided to work to expand our facilities to continue to reach campers with the saving truth of the gospel. Big Sky Bible Camp is embarking on a new capital campaign called, “A Promise Kept.” Big Sky wants to keep its “promise” of providing a place for those with special needs to learn from the Bible while experiencing new activities, making friends and providing a much needed break for their caregivers. The goal of this campaign is to build a new facility that would incorporate a new central dining hall with eight housing units of two for a total of sixteen housing units. The dining hall would seat up to 250 and have a fully operable commercial kitchen, meeting room for up to 100 and lounge. The desire to expand BSBC’s campus is threefold: to accommodate the growth of BSBC traditional camps, to facilitate a campus that is American Disability Act compliant and to have facilities for Camp Promise to run for a full summer session.
