Since 1947, Camp Timber-lee has served as a place where children and young adults have enjoyed fellowship, recreation, and a Gospel-centered message. During its history, about one million attendees have benefited from Timber-lee experiences. Timber-lee has created engaging communities where each young person encounters Christ through a dynamic camp experience.
Trinity International University began educating students in 1897. Today, Trinity enrolls about 2,700 students who study within the undergraduate Trinity College, Trinity Graduate School, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School, Trinity Law School in California, and at two regional campuses in South Florida.
In October 2016, Timber-lee joined Trinity and now operates under Trinity’s organizational and administrative umbrella. Timber-lee employees are now Trinity employees. Timber-lee will continue to be led locally by a qualified and experienced team of camp and recreational ministry professionals. Timber-lee donors may continue to contribute directly to Timber-lee activities under the Trinity 501(c)(3) umbrella with any related tax-benefit allowed by law.
Both Timber-lee and Trinity share a Gospel-centered mission rooted in education and ministry. They also share close ties with the Evangelical Free Church of America. These common bonds will allow Trinity to sustain dynamic programming at Timber-lee and explore new frontiers of service.
