Mill Stream Bible Camp & Retreat Centre, formerly Crusaders Bible Camp, is situated on 40 acres of land bordering the pigeon River at an old mill pond in the beautiful Kawartha Lakes. Camps started in 1946 and have been operating at the current location since 1964.
We are owned and operated by BCM International (Canada) Inc., which is part of a worldwide mission in over 50 countries.
We offer a variety of summer camps in July and August, as well as having year-round retreat facilities for ministering to youth and adults. Mill Stream is a Bible-based, non-denominational organization that exists to fulfill our mandate of Reaching Children… Serving the Church, and Families.
We provide flexible programming, giving exposure to new areas of interest in a safe atmosphere of fun, fellowship, and Christian living. Our staff is trained and dedicated to helping your children and teens grow in every area of their lives. We are fully accredited by both the Ontario Camps Association and CCI Canada.
Mill Stream can also be rented by groups of 20-110 people to have fellowship with the Lord and each other – a place for fun activities where Christians grow in the Lord and unsaved friends are exposed to Christ.

Hello! We are the new kids on the block, starting in the role of director, June of 2019.
Laura and I met at Mill Stream in 2001 while we were working as cabin leaders. We both worked in various capacities here over the next few years but eventually got married and moved away. Working at several different camps, God has been building our toolkits, preparing us for this job.
Our desire for Mill Stream is to continue the great work that has been happening here. Our passion is for the discipling of children and young people and we are looking forward to what God has planned for His camp.
1 Corinthians 15:58 “Therefore, my beloved brothers, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that in the Lord your labour is not in vain.”

Projects and Facilities
Since becoming BCM Missionaries in 2001 we have had a desire to minister to children and teens through camping and retreat ministries. We believe that Mill Stream Bible Camp provides a setting where children and teens can grow spiritually, physically, mentally and socially in a safe and fun atmosphere. Being a Bible-based camp we teach the Christian faith in an outdoor environment. Our primary ministry focus has now changed towards being a support for the ministries that are carried out at Mill Stream.
After almost 20 years at Mill Stream, it is still our desire for your children and teens to have an amazing, enriching, safe and joyful experience as our camp staff and leaders provide a program of learning, personal development, enthusiasm, relational growth and FUN!
Won’t you join us this year!
