Rock Garden Christian Camp was founded in 1940. Separate weeks of camp are scheduled for youth from First grade up through High School graduation. Rock Garden is supported, maintained and operated by a collaborating group of independent Christian Churches in Southern Missouri and Northern Arkansas. During camp, faculty members include preachers, parents, church members, visiting missionaries and Bible college students volunteering their time and talents.
The camp facilities are composed of three air-conditioned dormitories outfitted with bunks beds, restrooms and showers, a large recreational building with an industrial kitchen, three small cabins, a swimming pool, basketball courts, ball field, canteen shop, sand volleyball court, a tabernacle, a disc golf course, open air classroom shelters, and housing for the camp manager.
Rock Garden Christian Camp teaches that the Bible is the inspired, inherent word of God and as such is the only authoritative rule of faith and practice. Accordingly, we also teach that Jesus Christ is the divine Son of God, and that holy living is necessary to the Christian lifestyle.
