Join us in preparing camp for the summer.

We are excited to welcome guests over Memorial Day Weekend to help us out with lots of projects around camp!Work and Worship Retreat is absolutely essential for getting camp ready for the Summer. Winter and Spring take a toll on the grounds and facilities at CPBC and Silver Beach. Without the generosity and help of folks like you, we would not be able to get camp ready for the 1,700 kids and families that will be up here in a few weeks.

Come join us for a mix of work projects, worship and fun activities. Scroll down to see some of the projects we’ll need help with. Click below to visit our website for more information about housing, pricing, and activities.
