Camp Tipton offers week long, weekend or day projects customized for groups of all ages!
Our summer season runs from the last week of May to the end of August but mission projects can be scheduled year-round.
*Here’s what a typical week long mission trip looks like…
Arrive Sunday afternoon and depart Friday
This trip includes: lodging, meals, mission project scheduling and coordination, shirts and daily recreation for only $250 per person!
Mission projects are tailored to your group’s skills and needs. You can choose to work with our on-site day camp, home repair, community outreach, One Body Ministry, and much much more.
Recreation options are also chosen by your group. These are offered daily and can include rock climbing, The Black Dragon (slip-n-slide), paintball, hiking, bonfires, teambuilding, or games led by our staff.
Meals are provided starting with supper on Sunday through breakfast on Friday.
Looking for a place to serve? Let us help!
Camp Tipton has four main groups that we function from to better serve our community.
Whether your group is skilled contractors or new to home repair we can put together a trip for you! Some of the projects we have conquered in the past include painting, roofing, constructing handicap ramps, and many more.
*We also partner with Habitat for Humanity in constructing houses in Blount County.
East Tennessee is nestled in a heavy tourist region and Camp Tipton is no exception. Hospitality ministry is a popular choice amongst a wide range of groups. Groups in the past have set up an outreach to campgrounds, popular hiking spots, “The Dragon” and other tourist locations.
*The Dragon is an 11-mile stretch of Highway 129 crossing Deals Gap that contains 318 curves. It is considered by many as one of the world’s foremost motorcycling and sportscar roads and it’s right in our backyard! Along the road are outlooks to observe scenery and they provide a great point of outreach to travelers. In the past we have encountered travelers from all over the United States and a few from different countries!
One Body Ministry is another evangelism opportunity available to your group. Camp Tipton operates as a member of the Chilhowee Baptist Association and One Body Ministry. We can partner your group with one of our local churches to reach the local community through VBS, block parties, and much more.
We can connect you with some of our local partners to outreach to East Tennessee. Some of these partners include Second Harvest Food Bank, The Welcome Table, Habitat for Humanity, The Chilhowee Baptist Center and many more!
Camp Tipton hosts two on-site day camps for children from our community! Our Day Camp outreaches to campers Kindergarten through 6th grade and our Middle School Adventure Camp outreaches to campers 6th through 8th grade. Each week is a new and interesting theme and your team can partner with our staff to make the week come alive. Come and help us build relationships with some pretty amazing campers!
