Little Blue Bible Camp’s Mission is to provide a fun and safe environment in which children can learn about God, His will for them, and how to overcome the trials and temptations of this life.

‘Train up a child in the way he should go and when he is old, he will not depart from it.’  –Proverbs 22:6

Little Blue Bible Camp is a privately owned non-profit religious organization and place for kids ages 9-19 to camp, swim and play while focusing their hearts and minds on God.  Little Blue Bible Camp’s board members are made up of faithful Christian men from local churches of Christ and is supported by members of these congregations in the Kansas City, Missouri area.


Little Blue Bible Camp was founded in the early 1960’s on the bank of the Little Blue river, located just north of 24 Hwy, northeast of Independence, Missouri and northwest of Buckner, Missouri. Set on a hillside overlooking the Little Blue river and nearby country fields, the beautiful shade trees enshroud 6 cabins and dining facilities.  A little white chapel is the first building to greet the arriving guests. Drive down through a valley and upon reaching the top of the other side, you will enter the main area. You’ll find our activity building to the left, ball field and pool straight ahead of you, and the campfire and pavilion to your right.

The camp was founded and first opened in 1963 and has provided Biblical education to thousands of youth from the surrounding Kansas City area and around the world ever since.  The summer camp sessions are typically week-long sessions at a cost of $135 per camper per session.  Some NEW mini-sessions have been added recently to the schedule of sessions as 2-night/3-day stays at a lesser rate.

A Time for BIBLE STUDY . . . Daily classes, worship and fireside devotionals.

We have a strong desire to help young people grow in their Bible knowledge.  We believe in speaking where the Bible speaks and being silent where the Bible is silent.  As Peter said, ‘If any man speak, let him speak as the oracles of God. If any man minister, let him do it as the ability which God giveth that God in all things may be glorified through Jesus Christ in whom be praise and dominion forever and ever. Amen.’ (1 Peter 4:11).

This is what we will teach the youth who come to us through Little Blue Bible Camp.  We instill in them that we must have Bible authority for all that we say and do, ‘And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus,
giving thanks to God and the Father by Him.’ (Colossians 3:17).
