Family Camp

July 5-13, 2024

BlackHills Family Camp is for people of all ages. This 9-day camp offers a wide variety of services and activities for the whole family.

Meet Our 2024 Speaker

Dr. Lenny and Rev. Joy Wisehart have one passion: helping people live in the overflow of the Holy Spirit so they can outflow into the world. Are you tired of living the Christian life in your own strength? Are you attempting to live the Spirit filled life without the power of the Spirit?

Lenny and Joy have rich experiences in ministry, leading churches of hundreds to several thousand. They have ministered across the United States and in nine countries. Their ministry impacts people from every walk of life across multiple generations.

Lenny is a gifted communicator of the Word. His magnetic enthusiasm and humor brings the gospel alive to young and old alike. His ministry experience as an evangelist, pastor, professor, and writer along with his vibrant relationship with Jesus gives him a wealth of wisdom in life's successes and hurts in order to mentor and equip all ages.

Lenny is a graduate of Olivet Nazarene University, Nazarene Theoglogical Seminary, and as a post graduate, studied at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School. He is a recipient of an honorary Doctorate of Divinity from Olivet Nazarene University.

Joy is a woman passionate about God and His word. She is a person full of her name. A rare combination of warmth, humor, and wisdom, Joy blends Biblical principles with day-to-day experiences, offering the hearer handles on how to live a Godly life in an ungodly world.

Joy is a graduate of Olivet Nazarene University and holds a Masters of Divinity degree from Anderson School of Theology. A former elementary school teacher, Joy has enjoyed teaching as a University professor for several Christian Universities.

Lenny and Joy are a vibrant couple, often preaching and teaching together. They authentically live in the overflow, and they would love to share their outflow with you.

How Can I Participate?

Individuals or Families wishing to participate in Family Camp must send in a completed Registration Form found below.

Family Camp begins with Dinner at 5:00 PM on Friday, July 5th. Camp Closing is 1 PM on Saturday, July 13th. Visitors are welcome to join us for our evening services beginning each evening at 7 PM.

For children in 4th grade and under, there are morning devotions, Vacation Bible School, Sunday school classes, afternoon activities and after service activities.

Those in 5th -8th grade (middle school aged) and those 9th-through graduated seniors (high school aged) meet in their age appropriate groups to enjoy an in-depth morning Bible Study, morning and evening activities, and plenty of other happenings.  Both the middle school-aged and high school-aged groups have their own worker and meet in their own designated areas. Their classes may merge for group activities.

Adults can enjoy an early morning time of devotionals and praying, morning worship, and quite often there will be pickup games of volleyball and basketball between the adults in the afternoon. 

Everyone comes together in the evening to fellowship and worship at an evening service beginning at 7pm.  After the worship, children ages 4-9 are welcome to attend children’s church, where they can be picked up by their parents after the evening message.

Something is always happening at BlackHills Camp, whether it is playing a game of ricochet around the ping pong table, chatting with friends on the store porch, watching the teens and children playing games, eating one of the many fine meals served in the dining hall, attending a bonfire, or laughing at one of the many skits put on during skit night. We welcome you to join us. Please remember CAMPERS AGES 18 AND UNDER MUST HAVE A SUPERVISING ADULT (25 OR OLDER) ON THE CAMPGROUND AT ALL TIMES.

Finally, our camp fees are so affordable due to volunteers in the store, kitchen, bathroom, etc. Many hands make light work, and we all benefit from this service! We ask that each able-bodied, adult camper take a turn. If you will be staying at Family Camp and have a preference as to which tasks/slots you would like to help with, please sign-up for Work Assignments below.
