Who we are…

Portage Lake Covenant Bible Camp is a community that is committed to providing a positive Christian environment for children, families, and young adults.  We believe that our unique camp setting is ideal in providing campers an opportunity not only to come and learn about God, but most importantly to experience the unconditional love of Jesus Christ.  It is our desire that all who come to Portage Lake are met with exciting and well organized activities, authentic fellowship, and fun!  Knowing this, we emphasize relevant messages, age-appropriate activities, and truth.  Our hope is that Portage Lake is an uplifting and integral part of each camper’s development.


Our Hiring Philosophy

Portage Lake is looking for people who live a life full of love for God and for others.  We hire individuals who aim for holiness and are committed to the pursuit of truth.  We believe that a staff member’s most important characteristic is a desire to tell others of the life-changing love of Christ and their desire to serve others.
