Throw away the rigid schedule and high-paced intensity of our main site for a "back to the basics" alternative to Ness Lake Bible Camp. Perfect for those who love the outdoors, WilderNess has no running water or electricity... and we like it that way!


Enjoy amazing food prepared to the same high standards as our main site, small camp sizes, wall tents with mattress bunks and a beautiful private lake. Paintball camps available. Click on the image to the left to learn more.

    A brand new addition to our WilderNess program, WilderNess Creative Arts is designed for those who want to learn a new skill or be given the opportunity to learn a new one in the beauty of God's creation.

Take time to reflect and create, but make sure you take every opportunity to enjoy everything that makes WilderNess so unique.
