The Big Little Camp!

We may not be the biggest camp around, but we sure have a lot to offer. Two of our best assets include our staff and great location in the forested hills of Chautauqua County, New York.

At each camp we work hard to ensure a great time for each youth. We are:

  • BIG on recreation which involves everybody
  • BIG on exploring God’s creation (rocks, creepy crawly things, not so creepy things that crawl or walk, plants and more)
  • BIG on good food and good fun
  • BIG on good and godly music and instruction
  • BIG on building trusting relationships with the campers
  • BIG on little cabin sizes
  • BIG on out-of-the-ordinary recreation (adventure games, frisbee golf, camping out, fossil-finds, badge-earning)

So grab a friend and come to summer camp!


At Chautauqua Hills Camp, we don’t think it’s enough to just offer fun programming, games and good friends. We’re involved in camping because we believe that camp is an amazing life-changing experience.

The mission of our camp programs is to provide:

  • time to follow the example set by Jesus Christ
  • time to build community in which everyone is safe and welcome
  • time to affirm and value each person’s unique God-given gifts
  • time to experience true stewardship of the environment
  • time to create daily opportunities for the growth of the whole person through fun and play
  • time to celebrate and encourage creativity and ingenuity
  • time to read, sing, dance, paint, act, share and live the Word of God

Come and be on mission at camp!


The camp strives to…

  1. Expose young people to the loving, forgiving, and purpose-filled hope found in Jesus Christ
  2. Encourage those who have begun a relationship with Jesus to grow deeper in their walk with the Lord, through means such as teaching biblical truths, showing the good science of creation rather than the bad science of evolution, and through the building of trusting relationships with godly staff
  3. Provide a place where adults can serve and grow deeper in their walk with Jesus, as well as receive mentoring to help them continue in their walk
