Our Vision

Bethel Horizons is a summer camp, a year round retreat and event center, and an art education campus. Through its unique natural setting, it fosters and inspires growth in the harmonies of God, self, others and nature. These harmonies promote faith development, community and renewal using summer camp, adventure programs, environmental education and the arts.
