Camp Good News® is a great place for kids (ages 8 to 13) to get to know Christ, have fun, make new friends, and grow in their faith. Our camp environment invites campers to enjoy the beautiful North Dakota outdoors through activities like canoeing and swimming, as well as many other games and crafts. It’s also a place where a relationship with Christ can develop and bloom in a safe place: Bible classes, chapel sessions, and good conversations with others.
