Graphite Bible Camp RetreatBible Camp

Graphite Bible Camp is located 21 km north of Bancroft on Graphite Lake. It was founded in 1960 to provide a camping experience to children of the area, without a financial burden to parent or child. This remains our policy.

Our Goal:
Is to provide a camping experience for boys and girls, in a wholesome and safe environment of fun and fellowship, and to tell of God’s love and good news for them.

Graphite Bible Camp

Pre-Registration Only!!

We do our best to plan bus routes with registrants. Please help us by not overloading our busses with surprise first day campers or without vital information needed for their health and safety.  Registration forms can be mailed, delivered in person, emailed, faxed or called in ahead!! If you are not registered at the camp by the Wednesday before your camp starts you must drive your child to camp the first day and register them at the office.    Anyone registering from Thursday onwards will be confirmed on an individual basis…we do want them here, just not on a crowded bus.

What to Bring 

 Please mark your child’s belongings so that they can be returned if misplaced.

 Note:  Graphite Camp has adopted the dress code of the local Public Schools, which requires that all campers dress modestly, considering the activities and sports programs they will be involved in...The guidelines for unacceptable attire are as follows:

Do Not Bring

POCKET KNIVES or VALUABLES such as: Cell phones, i-pods, rings, watches, glasses, extra money, wallets/purse, designer clothing, expensive hats, electronics etc… anything that may be misplaced or broken.

Camp Confirmations

ALL CAMPER APPLICATIONS ARE ACCEPTED… if registrations exceed bus seating limitations you will be notified if we need to make other arrangements for transportation. If you require a confirmation of bus and time for your child’s registration, either include a self-addressed, stamped envelope or email us your campers name and what camp they are attending and we will reply to your email with your camper’s confirmation.


To enable every child in our community an equal opportunity to attend camp, no registration fee has ever been required. 

Donations...  The camp continues to be funded by free-will donations from individuals. (Tax- deductible receipts are issued) Any gift is gratefully received.
