our church camp
Located in the Pocono Mountains, Camp Ichthus is tucked away in a beautiful spot close to white water-rafting, hiking, boating and biking. The Camp is situated on approximately 100 acres of land with open fields and wooded areas. The camp was founded in 1954 and the first part of the camp to be built was the outdoor chapel establishing the foundation for Christian Camping.
The camp’s location is very desirable. Groups seeking a weekend retreat or week-long trip in the summer will find the location ideal. The camp is located minutes from the Northeast Extension, offering easy access to the property. Within minutes from the camp are popular attractions such as white-water rafting in Jim Thorpe, hiking on the Appalachian Trail, boating at Beltzville Lake, and biking along the Blue Mountain.

″Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their work:
If one falls down, his friend can help him up.
But pity the man who falls and has no one to help him up!
Though one may be overpowered, two can defend themselves.
A cord of three strands is not quickly broken.″
Ecclesiastes 4:9, 10, 12 (NIV 1984 edition)
