Our Location: Appalachian Bible College

We are back in Mt Hope, West Virginia, on one of the most beautiful college campuses around. The activity options near campus are excellent: paintball, caving, white-water rafting, and more! But what keeps us coming back year after year is the character and heart of the college staff there.

Our Speaker: Paul Goodnight

Paul was on staff at RBC for over 20 years before retiring to Florida in 2018.  His combination of humor, knowledge of God’s Word, and humble spirit make him one of the most gifted and requested youth speakers.

Camp Activities

During the week, we have several group games and activities planned, plus free time where students can play Frisbee, soccer, basketball, fly off of the “blob,” zip line over the lake, or challenge themselves on the climbing tower. All students also get to spend a day at the lake participating in water sports such as tubing & water skiing. Finally, all students will have the opportunity to spend one day doing an activity of their choice. When you register online, you will rank your preference of which activity you would like to do.


  • Whitewater Rafting: Raft through the “Grand Canyon of the East” on the New River as you ride the rapids with your friends.
  • Paintball: Face off against your friends in a friendly yet competitive  game of paintball in a rugged woodland course.
  • Caving: Explore God’s underground creation with a helmet & headlamp leading the way.
  • High Ropes: Test your faith as you rise to a higher level! You will be challenged through a series of obstacles and activities in a multi-level, high angle environment.
  • Mountain Hiking: Hike along the beautiful, winding, Glade Creek mountain stream. Take a break and cool your feet in its refreshing waters.
  • Rappelling: Spend the day climbing up a cliff and rappelling down a 150 ft. rock face.

There are some activity restrictions for students who are not 12 by the start of camp. Please contact Aaron Osborne aaronosborne@restonbible.org for more information.
