"Let the little children come to Me, and do not forbid them; for of such is the kingdom of heaven." Matthew 19:14
Pend Oreille Bible Camp was created in the late 1990's on the bequest of Bill and Loretta Harold, who had the desire to leave their property to establish a camping facility that would benefit the youth of our area and promote the spreading of the gospel of Jesus Christ. In keeping with this vision they donated 180 wooded acres along the banks of the Pend Oreille River to Dalkena Community Church, under the agreement that we would establish and oversee the continuing operation of a camping facility.
The year 2017 marked the end of an era for Dalkena Community Church as our active stewardship of the camp and its resources came to an end with the sale of the camp to Spokane Baptist Church on the Hill.
The initial purpose of the camp was to support the needs of the children of the churches associated with the Village Missions organization, one of which is Dalkena, and the Pinecroft Bible Camping program, which is an affiliation of several of these churches. Pinecroft Youth Camps will still be held at Pend Oreille Bible Camp annually during the month of July so this purpose will continue to be fulfilled.
Through the Pinecroft Bible Camping program and the growth of other church sponsored camps, literally thousands of children have stayed, enjoyed and benefited from the services of Pend Oreille Bible Camp, with many of these hearing the presentation of the gospel for the first time. We are confident that Spokane Baptist Church on the Hill will continue and expand on the opportunities for young lives to be impacted by the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
