About New Life Camp

At New Life Camp, we seek to provide a Bible-based Christian camping experience for the children and youth of our community, and we are passionate about sharing the truths of God’s Word with the next generation of young people.


In the 1960s, the camp property was the site of a minimum security prison known as Camp Oliver. The property was bought in the early 70s by a group of Baptist church leaders who had a vision for a summer Bible camp in West Grey.  Incorporated in 1973 as a non-profit registered charitable organization, New Life Camp is part of the Bluewater Association of Evangelical Baptist Churches in Canada.


While we love playing crazy games and exploring the natural world, our purpose is to encourage the spiritual enrichment and personal development of all who visit our facility. We provide a Bible-centered, Christian camping experience for children and youth and make our facilities available year-round for Christian groups.

The Site:

9.5 acres surrounded by 750 acres of government forest (with access to nature trails). Facilities include a main lodge, staff buildings, chapel, craft area, small creek and pond, large sports field, and pool building.


We are a member of Christian Camping International (CCI/Canada), and we are a registered charity recognized by the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA).
