Camp

Welcome to White Mills Christian Camp.
Let me explain a little of who we are.

White Mills Christian Camp is a joint effort of nearly 60 Christian Churches throughout the states of Kentucky and Tennessee that have joined together to provide a place where individuals can fellowship with each other as they grow deeper in their faith. Founded in 1949, our camp has continued to be blessed every year with amazing staff members, incredible volunteers, and unbelievable campers. 


Frequently Asked Questions:

What does a typical day of camp look like?

Your average day at camp will be filled with things like eating meals, bible teachings, to playing silly games on the ball field and singing worship songs to God. Each camp's schedule is adjusted for the certain type of camp it is and the age range of its campers. Take a look at what a typical day look like. Click here for an example schedule

How can I determine which camp my child should attend?

All of our camp sessions are set up for specific grades. At camp we look at the grade that your child has just completed/finished. Therefore if your child has just finished 4th grade and will be starting 5th grade in the fall they would attend camp sessions designated for all 4th grade camps.

Why are cell phones not allowed? What if I need to speak with my child?

Cell phones are not allowed at camp because they can cause unnecessary problems for our camp sessions and also lead to campers leaving early due to homesickness. Also the ability for cell phones to send pictures and have access to the internet becomes a safety concern for all campers. Campers are always allowed to use the office phone to call home if the Camp Manager and Dean (leader of the session) find it necessary.

Can my child bunk with their friend at camp?

In most camp sessions campers are allowed to choose their own bunks within a certain dorm building. Therefore campers have the ability to bunk close to one another if desired. All bunks are first come first serve so it would better for campers to arrive to camp early and check in with their friend to ensure they can bunk near each other.

Do staff and faculty receive background checks?

Yes, any adult that is on the property during our camp sessions must have a background check before they are allowed to work a session. All faculty and staff receive a nationwide background check as well as a national sexual offenders list check.
