Coldstream Christian Camp

Coldstream Christian Camp Providing rest, retreat, and refreshment in Christ since 1980. "But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ." -2 Peter 3:18
(18)

Coldstream Christian Camp had its beginning in the heart of a young Robertson County, Tennessee farmer in the late 1970s. As a young boy growing up on a farm, Joe Goodman and his brother camped in a small clearing near the spring that now feeds the lake of Coldstream Christian Camp. At the time, his mind was far from using the land for the Lord's work. When his family mentioned the prospect of the land being used for a Christian camp, Joe was opposed to the idea-after all, that was farm land. After spending several years away from the farm, Joe returned in 1967, married, and settled down to raise a family. He soon began to see the possibilities for just such a camp. The Lord impressed upon him that he should set aside a portion of his farm for a camping area. His initial goal was to use the camp as a retreat for pastors and missionaries, but it soon became apparent that God was to broaden the scope of the ministry to include ministry to couples, children, churches, and other church related organizations. The necessary paperwork was filed, the camp incorporated, and tax-exempt status sought. Faith, prayers, and patience were answered by the granting of such status on November 5, 1980. The work began... to God be the glory!

Mission: The mission of Coldstream Christian Camp is to provide an atmosphere of Christian fellowship in a campground setting, bringing Christian growth to those who have placed their faith in Jesus Christ, and presenting the lost with the Gospel unto salvation. The Potter's House and Cottage Ministry, also a part of Coldstream Christian Camp, was started to provide a place or retreat and restoration for groups, individuals, or couples at a modest cost. Since 1980, God has used Coldstream Christian Camp, in Adams, Tennessee, to minister to thousands of individuals through children's camps, church retreats, wild game dinner retreats, and numerous other activities. Coldstream is committed to pursuing its mission of providing a place for spiritual growth and evangelization in an outdoor setting, all to the glory of our risen Savior, Jesus Christ. Situated less than an hour from Nashville and Clarksville, Tennessee, Coldstream is an ideal location to hold your next youth retreat or other overnight gathering. Fully equipped and reasonably priced, it fits into the budgets of even small organizations.

CAMP IS CLOSE!

In addition to limiting our number of campers, we’re closing registration 5 days before each camp to make sure campers have the full amount of time for temperature checks. That means no walk-ups!
Middle school week is almost completely full and elementary camp is going fast- don’t miss your chance to secure your child’s spot at camp this summer!

Hi, everyone! My name is Noah Bartley, and this will be my second year as a counselor at Coldstream. I am finishing up my junior year at Bryan College as a Bible major. Aside from school, you can find me reading a book, brewing/drinking coffee (big Chemex guy), spending money on the coffee I’m about to brew, or playing basketball. I am beyond excited to roll into Coldstream this year with a fresh pair of crocs and an expectation to see God transform the lives of all who attend... Also, Eden is gonna make some noise this year.

Hello everyone! My name is Benjamin Paul (I know, two first names, but please call me Ben) and I am ecstatic about serving for my first year ever at Coldstream this summer! I will have finished up my freshman year at Bryan College by the time camp starts, and I am currently studying Biology with the hopes of becoming a dentist on mission someday. During my free time, I enjoy playing guitar, camping (when it's warm enough), golf, making new friends, and oddly enough, beekeeping! I know life is pretty crazy right now considering the COVID-19 scare, but I have every confidence God will use it for good like He always does. I am so excited to see the work Jesus will do in my life and the lives of others this summer at Coldstream. See you soon!

Because of Jesus’ resurrection, we can have life- “The first man Adam became a living being; the last Adam became a life-giving spirit.”
Although we cannot gather together this Easter Sunday, take heart- the tomb is empty and Jesus is alive!

The world is a little crazy right now. That’s why camp matters.
We spend the summer pouring into our campers and staff because we know life is hard and uncertain. When things become scary, we want children to know who holds them fast.
God Goes to Camp- but He’s also with each and every one of us today. May the truth you learned this summer impact you wherever you are, bringing peace in this pandemic.
“Cast all your anxiety on Him, because He cares for you.”

My kids love this place and look forward to going back every year
Thank you for all you do to make this beautiful space available for others to appreciate. It was truly breathtaking.
Just picked Staton up from Elementary Camp. Thank you Coldstream for another great camp season! My crew loves you all. Your commitment to God does not go unnoticed. Staton has already shared what she learned about Ruth with me. Can't wait until next year!
