Winter Mini-Camp is a ministry of Family Bible Church, in conjunction with the Brethren Church in Český Těšín. This means that Family Bible Church plans the travel, activities, and programs for the camp. The Brethren Church is responsible for meal planning, advertisement, and providing Czech translation and camp leaders. The result is a unique camp experience that is provides both English language learning and gospel conversations, in a laid-back holiday atmosphere.

The theme for this year’s camp is “indescribable gift” from 2 Corinthians 9:15. Camp talks will explore how the Christmas story ties into the greater story of the gospel.

We will be attempting to blog daily during the trip to keep you informed.
