Habersham Co., Georgia Bear Camp

North Georgia Christian Camp

About This Camp

Bear Camp began the weekend of Oct. 12-14, 2012 at North Georgia Christian Camp. However, the thought of hosting a Camp was planted in the heart of Dale Thomas when he attended a Turkey Camp through God’s Great Outdoors Ministry at Crossroads Baptist Church in Eatonton the weekend of March 20-22, 2009 with his daughter, Maggie. When Dale left the Camp, he told Brad Gill, current 30-30 Ministries’ Director, “We need to do one of these back home.”

Dale also hosts an annual Turkey & Trout Camp each spring, with his first one being May 4-6, 2012 at the Habersham County home of Sidney Roland on the Chattahoochee River.

Camp Managers

Tony and Cindy Smith

Tony and Cindy Smith have been involved with 30-30 Ministries since Nov. 22, 2014 when they stopped by a Morgan County Deer Camp for lunch. Tony had been recently saved and felt led to share a portion of his testimony with the group of deer hunters.

After that Camp, the Smiths spent a few years faithfully serving at various 30-30 Ministries’ Camps and then felt God’s call to become 30-30 Ministries’ Camp Managers. Their first managed Camp was a Turkey & Trout Camp in Habersham County the weekend of March 24-26, 2017. They now manage several Camps throughout the year.

Tony and Cindy live in Newton County and were married Jan. 2, 1987. Tony was saved March 9, 2014 and was baptized March 16, 2014. Cindy was saved in the summer of 1984 and was baptized on June 11, 2021 at the 30-30 Ministries’ Shark Camp.
