Our Story

For 60 years now, OBC has been running camps for children and young people every year. During this time, more than 500,000 people have participated in a camp stay at OBC. Well over a thousand of them have changed their lives and have accepted Jesus into their lives. It is a great privilege for us employees to experience this anew every year. We are thankful for all the connections that have been made over the years and it is moving to see how the 2nd or 3rd generation of children of former campers spend their holidays here in the camp. We are thankful to God that he has given us success and preservation over the years. For example when the chapel burned down a few years ago. We were able to rebuild it with God’s and your help.

60 years is a long time and it leaves traces. Traces of blessing in each one. But also traces of use on materials and buildings. Our Camp Van, for example, has gotten old and the repairs are no longer worthwhile, so we would like to buy a new van. Also our kitchen and dining room are in need of renovation so much that it is more economical to replace them with a new building. We also need new rafting boats for our summer camps. All this is beyond our financial means and we would like to ask you for your help. Below we have listed various projects and possibilities for you to support us. No matter if you want to support us regularly or just once, no matter if you want to support us with a big or a small amount. Everybody is welcome who wants to work together with us towards God’s great goal.

This is good, and pleases God our Savior,  who wants all people to be saved
and to come to a knowledge of the truth.
