Memories for a
I had a blast! Learning about Jesus and what He has done for me and how amazing He really is. Love Sunnybrae! Couldnâ€™t ask for a better place and I am so thankful for all of the staff here and the amazing influence this camp has been on our whole family but especially my kids.
... Iâ€™ll tell everyone in my youth group to join me in coming next summer to Sunnybrae! Took my two nieces there one year, then took my parents, daughter, grandaughter, and the same two nieces there the following year. They all enjoyed it and a fun time was had by all.
Excellent people; exce ptional facilities; a gre at message about a magnifi cent God. 2
At Sunnybrae we desire kids to experience their value and worth in Christ through our staff and the experiences we provide, with an emphasis on the Gospel through chapel, worship, and cabin time.
Sunnybrae Bible Camp has been in operation since 1940, and while much has changed our mission remains: to provide your children with a dynamic Christian camping experience. We do so by recruiting the very best of staff. Both our full time and summer staff are carefully chosen based on their character, competence and love for kids. Our staff are required to submit a current CRC, and we provide comprehensive training to ensure they are prepared to give your kids a safe and fun time at camp. Towards this end we are committed to maintaining a 3/1 camper to staff ratio. Both our board of directors and staff team thank you for trusting us with your children.

In the fall Sunnybrae Bible Camp is host to Millar College of the Bible’s BC Campus. From September to April the camp property is filled with young men and women who are taking their faith to a new depth by studying His Word. Here at this incredible location, students of Millar College of the Bible engage in local ministry, examine God’s Word and live in community, ever growing in a deeper relationship with Him. We believe God’s desire is that every person would be in ministry, whether that is their primary vocation, or if they are a mechanic, homemaker, doctor, hairdresser, or any other secular profession. Millar College of the Bible strives to equip students
in all areas of their lives for a life that will glorify God as they seek Him in a deeper way. Through Bible teaching, character development, relationships and life skills, our vision is to develop passionate, relevant servants of Jesus Christ who are shaped by the entire Scriptures. If you sense that God may be leading you to set aside a year or more to get to know Him better, give us a call and come experience what Millar College of the Bible is about with a campus tour or by visiting our campus during College Days in March!
