Located in Bryson City, NC at the foot of the Great Smoky Mountains, Camp Living Water is a year round conference ministry for all believers, regardless of denomination. Through the various camps, retreats, conferences and adventure programs we strive to point children, young people, single adults and families to "the LORD, the fountain of living waters."

Sitting on the banks of Deep Creek, Camp Living Water offers week-long Christian camps and High Trek Adventures for various age groups ranging from 7-17. You will appreciate the dynamic Bible teaching, a low camper-to-counselor ratio, home cooked meals, learning new skills and making many new friends.

Apart from our regular summer camp program we also offer retreats in the Spring, Fall, and Winter which always feature seasonal attractions such as whitewater rafting, riding the Great Smoky Mountain Railroad, fall colors, horseback riding, and snow skiing. Bring your church group! We're prepared to serve groups in the range of 15 to 120 people.
