Located in Greenwich, NY Beaver Cross Ministries is a year round youth ministry program. Our focus is to be an active youth ministry with retreats and break camps during the school year and summer camp during summer break. Across our ministries, we provide youth and young adults opportunities to explore and deepen their faith through dynamic Biblical teaching, fellowship in a Christian community, and awesome camp activities; new friendships are created and old ones rekindled as BC Campers laugh and learn together in an environment devoted to faith, friendship and fun!
Beaver Cross Ministries is a ministry of the Episcopal Diocese of Albany and our mission is to Build Community in Christ.
While we officially launched in 1964 as Beaver Cross, our legacy goes back into the 1950's, then called Episcopal Young People. In the 1960's, children of all ages came to the Beaver Cross where it was held in Cooperstown. The camp continued to be held in Cooperstown until 2004 when it moved to the Christ the King Center campus in Greenwich, NY after the Diocese acquired and renovated the property.
The Youth Ministry of the Episcopal Diocese of Albany developed alongside Beaver Cross, sharing a staff and developing the year round youth retreats and bible studies.
In 2014, Beaver Cross became Beaver Cross Ministries officially absorbing Beaver Cross Camps, as well as the year youth ministry of the Diocese of Albany.
