Year-Round Activities at Camp at Old Mill include
County Corrections Gospel Mission’s Kids Bible Club is an after-school Bible club held at the Camp at Old Mill reaching kids from the City of Coatesville from ages 4-14. Kids Club is every Thursday from 4:30 – 5:45 during the school year.
It is a volunteer-based program. Our volunteers come from local churches and colleges and help as leaders and teachers ministering to about 125 kids each week. While at the camp, Kids head to classrooms for a Bible lesson, craft or activity, a snack and recreation. It is a wonderful time and tremendous opportunity to pour in their lives.
Wilderness Adventure is the pinnacle of Kid’s Bible Club. Kids who have shown faithfulness throughout the year get an opportunity to have a week-long camp experience. They get to enjoy daily activities such as canoeing, arts and crafts, sports, and many others.
Each night there is a chapel service where kids sing songs, participate in skits and hear teaching from God’s Word. These weeks of camp are totally led by counselors who have raised support as missionaries to come and minister to a group of campers.

County Corrections Gospel Mission’s day camps are great summer “missions trip” opportunities for churches.
Volunteers get exposed to working with inner-city, at-risk kids and really get a taste of cross-cultural ministry. Our day camp “season” last for 8 weeks from July to August. Each week the camp staff hosts a missions group, from high school to adults, coming from churches in the area.
They live at the camp while serving and participating in a summer camp program with kids from the city of Coatesville, and have the opportunity to grow in a deeper walk with Christ. It takes those that are flexible, teachable, servant-hearted and devoted, but is an amazing ministry opportunity that has impacted so many lives over the years.
