Camp BeeTree

Camp BeeTree is an intergenerational week-long camp for children who have completed Kindergarten through Grade 5.  The camp is held the second week of July at the Church and the BeeTree Preserve, a 260 acre hiking, picnic, and open space facility in Parkton, MD. Children, youth, and adults join together for a VBS-type experience from 8:30 a.m. – 3:15 p.m. each day.  The BeeTree Preserve borders the Torrey C. Brown Trail (formerly the NCR Trail) and contains two covered pavilions, bathroom facilities, and a cemetery/meditation area.  A design team consisting of church staff and members plans a fun and inspiring program for children, who are assisted by 20 youth Counselors In Training (Grades 6 and up).   A much-loved tradition for youth is a voluntary fellowship/ work camp to ready Camp BeeTree. This optional program is offered as an all-day program on the Saturday before camp starts.  Separate registration forms and information will be sent upon selection as a Counselor in Training (CIT).

Campers are grouped by age/ grade level and are led by adult teachers assisted by youth CITs.  Parents are encouraged to volunteer.

Campers will have a fun-filled week at Camp BeeTree this year from July 8 - 12, 2019.  If you would like more information about TPC's annual camp, please see the links below for the Camp Brochure, Camper and Counselor-in-Training (CIT) Registration Form, CIT Application, and Volunteer Form.
