For over a century, Camp Bedford, now formally known as Bedford Camp and Conference Center, has served as a sacred grounds for spiritual and personal renewal, and fellowship. Now, due to the passage of time, the camp needs a little renewal of its own. You can be a part of this campaign to make sure the camp serves people for another glorious century. Please make your contribution to Camp Bedford today to ensure its existence tomorrow. Give now or make the camp your legacy as part of your estate. Your generous gift will help allow this camp, which has served children for over 100 years, continue to serve children for many years to come.
In today’s increasingly technological world, people are less connected to the beauty and simplicity of nature and lack fulfillment of the innate need to connect with the natural world, both physically and spiritually. Our camp allows people of all ages to unplug from the fast-pace and high-pressure of their increasingly complicated daily lives and find their own mental and spiritual path in the tranquil setting of our wooded camp. Your gift will make the abundance of the beautiful Southern Indiana woodlands available to future generations of campers, allowing your legacy and the legacy of the camp to carry on for generations to come.
