Camp Charis stays focused on its main purpose by adhering to accepted core values. They are:
- To remain true to our Lord, Jesus Christ and the authority of God’s Word, the Bible.
- To emphasize the teaching of grace as it relates to the gospel and its impact on the life of every individual, avoiding denominational distinctions, extra-Biblical philosophy or teaching that is not central to godly living.
- To promote the Biblical habits of Christian living, Christian service and involvement in sharing the Gospel around the world.
- To provide a thoroughly screened and well trained staff committed to the statement of faith, purpose and practices of Camp Charis.
- To serve a significant number of campers (at least 25%) who are at higher risk due to poverty, foster care or recent divorce, death or imprisonment in the family.
- To serve the entire Camp Charis family by providing on-going opportunities for growth and service.
- To honor local Bible-believing churches and encourage them in every way possible.
- To clearly share the vision and needs of Camp Charis with His people, trusting for His provision, and maintaining financial integrity by carefully accounting for all funds.
