Did you know?

The directors of Summit Lake also operate a second location called the Manor at Middle Creek, which exclusively serves one group at a time.  It is located near Fairfield, PA, just over the Mason Dixon line and a stone’s throw away from Gettysburg battlefields. The Manor is a bed-and-breakfast style facility featuring 12 bedrooms, each with 2 twin beds and a private bath (linens and towels are provided). Meals are served in the country kitchen buffet style and guests have exclusive use of all 3 meeting rooms.


In 1969, a fully built youth camp near Emmitsburg, MD, was acquired & incorporated as Summit Lake Bible Conference.

Many volunteers donated time to winterize what had been only a summer camp. Three lodges were built, & a tabernacle & chapel were added.

Other planned lodges were denied permits because of zoning, so additional space for expansion had to be found elsewhere, resulting in the search for & subsequent purchase of the Manor at Middle Creek in 1983. The PA site is only 20 minutes from Summit Lake, & 15 minutes from Ski Liberty & Gettysburg.

The purpose of Summit Lake Bible Conference is to assist the Christian church with a facility to augment the work of carrying out the Great Commission of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Summit Lake seeks to provide quality accommodations in a secluded atmosphere in the midst of His beautiful creation where worship, praise, contemplation, study, teaching & preaching will edify His people. Recreational activities enhance the spiritual experience of God’s people as they grow in grace & knowledge of the Lord.

Here’s how you can help


The best support Summit Lake can receive is through your prayers. James 5:16 says, “The effectual, fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.” Please consider partnering with us in prayer over our ministry. We have two specific requests: provision and protection. We serve thousands of people from all walks of life every single year, but we still have times when no one is using the facilities; we still have to pay for insurance, utilities, and staffing during these times. Please pray that God would provide the finances to continue everyday operations, even in our slower seasons and that we would remember the words of Paul in Philippians 4:19: “My God will provide all your needs according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus. Please also pray for protection for all of our guests, staff, and over the camp facility itself. Lastly, please pray that we would not grow weary in our witness or service to our groups.

Please pray with us for Summit Lake Camp, and that through it souls are reached for Christ.
