Woodland Bible Camp News


At this time, the WBC Board and Camp Event directors are planning for the 2021 camp season. We anticipate that COVID-19 will still impact the usual camp activities in some capacities which may involve wearing masks, social distancing, number of campers per cabin, meal preparation, etc.. With the advent of vaccinations, the availability of treatments, etc. we are hopeful that we will be returning to a more “normal” situation by then, but this cannot be guaranteed at this time. However, we will plan and adapt as we go forward prayerfully with God’s leading. We will send out updates regarding the camp schedule and policies as needed as we prepare for the camp season.

Thank you. David Pound
