Mary B. Mullen Bible Camp

1900 Freemantown Rd., Lake Lure, NC 28746

The Camp mission is to develop the entire property into a useful community setting which will serve the citizens of Rutherford County and neighboring counties as well by providing the following: A retreat and/or conference center; camping facilities; walking/hiking/nature trails; picnic pavilions; provisions for general public use where families can conduct reunions, workshops and/or special community programs. Summer camps are now being considered. This camp not only provides recreational, park-like facilities for the general public, but is being designed to accommodate all people of all ages ranging from pre-schoolers to senior citizens including at-risk kids, and individuals with moderate handicapping conditions. It is being designed to incorporate such flexibility so as to operate from time to time as one or more of the following: a retreat center, a day camp, a resident camp, and/or a trip/travel camp. The camp offerings will eventually include activities such as workshops, arts/crafts, computer/technology, self-improvement seminars, drama, leadership development, sports, team building, self-empowerment, outdoor education, etc. We currently have a softball field, a basketball court, horseshoe pits, corn toss games, a pickle ball court, a playground, a huge pavilion, shower house, 12 room (42 bed) dormitory, shower house, Chapel, an office. a dining room and kitchen. Future facilities being considered for development include a game room, driving range, gymnasium, ropes/challenge course, soccer field, swimming pool, tennis court, walking trails and volleyball court. Some of our goals/ideas may change based on the needs of the community as the camp is still in the planning/development stage.
