Our Story & Timeline
Rock Mountain’s ministry to churches has grown from a handful of churches in 1996 to average over 50+ churches and Christian groups served every year. Our youth camps have grown from two summer weeks to three, serving over 250 children & teens, as well as serving churches through Fall, Winter and Spring retreats and off-site events, and our ministry to families in the Family Campground has grown to serve 275+ families per camping season. We are thankful for God’s faithfulness and the way He continues to use Rock Mountain Bible Camp as a place to experience Truth, Community and Change through Jesus Christ.
Arrowhead Ministries (our formal operating umbrella) was founded as Arrowhead Lake Bible Conference.
Arrowhead Lake began an on-site bookstore ministry to provide Christian literature and resources to those who attended the conferences. Arrowhead Lake quickly grew and the following year we added exclusive Summer Camps that specifically target youth.
Shepherds Camp Program is founded to provide Christ-centered summer camps for teenagers with developmental disabilities. Today, Arrowhead Bible Camp operates a camp and retreat center that provides Shepherds Camp and rentals to Christian groups and churches, and ministry opportunities for individuals & groups.
Arrowhead Ministries took over ‘Camp of the Nations’ (established in 1974), and re-opened Rock Mountain Bible Camp as a Christian Camp and Retreat Center in Pennsylvania. The vision was to expand Arrowhead’s ministry to youth, churches, and families at the 200+ acre camp.
Teen Camp was relocated to Rock Mountain from Arrowhead.
Junior Camp program was relocated to Rock Mountain from Arrowhead.
Fall Overnighters were relocated to Rock Mountain.

We operated during the summer of 2020, when many camps were closed due to COVID-19 pandemic concerns. Our Family Campground saw tremendous growth and utilization, and our Youth Camps were full (though limited to 50% capacity). It was a difficult year with many church/youth groups opting to cancel their events, but God still blessed us with campers/guests to serve!
