The purpose of Camp Charis is to provide camping experiences for children, teens and adults where the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ is taught, demonstrated and encouraged in daily living.
Camp Charis is a Bible-centered, non-denominational mission to children and teens. Charis is the Greek word for “grace” or “the divine influence on the heart, and its reflection in the life.” Since its beginning in 1992, the camp has served over 2000 campers and volunteers. Started by the ministry of Child Evangelism Fellowship, we were known as Camp Good News from 1992-2002. The name was changed to Camp Charis upon becoming an independent ministry in 2002. Camp Charis is a 510(c)3 non-profit organization supported primarily by tax-deductible gifts from churches, businesses and individuals.
Camp Charis is dedicated to sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ with children from all backgrounds and walks of life, encouraging them to a life of dedication and service to our Lord Jesus Christ.
