The mission of Silent Men’s Camp is to enrich the spiritual, emotional, and social life of each camper in a safe and happy environment.
Silent Men Camp is open to ALL Deaf, Hard of Hearing, Deafblind, and Hearing Men as to know Christ as our Personal Savior. We want to grow day-by-day in our Christian lives: in the act of giving, character development, remaining faithful to our commitments, caring, respect, friendship, and generosity. We desire that each camper comes away with a touch of evidence of having succeeded in one or more of these qualities, as well as feelings of independence, self-worth, and self-confidence.

SMC Statement of Faith:
There is one God. He is the Creator and Ruler of the universe. He eternally exists in three persons: the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. These three are co-equal and one. God is perfect in His attributes of holiness, love, mercy, power and knowledge.
Jesus Christ is God’s Son. He is co-equal with God the Father. He was born of a virgin, lived a sinless life, died on the cross as the perfect sacrifice for the sins of the world, rose again after three days, ascended to Heaven and will return again someday to earth to reign as King of Kings and Lord of Lords.
Who is Jesus?
THE HOLY SPIRIT
The Holy Spirit is co-equal with God the Father and the Son, Jesus Christ. He is the Divine Helper, Instructor, Guide and Counselor. He lives in every believer from the moment of salvation providing power for living, guidance and understanding of spiritual truth. He exalts Christ and convicts man of sin and righteousness and judgment. He enlightens and empowers the believer.
The Bible is God’s written revelation of Himself to man. It was written by human authors under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit. The Bible is the sole source of truth, is inerrant and is divinely inspired by God.
Salvation is a gift from God to man. Man is sinful, therefore, cannot earn or deserve eternal life. Sin has separated us from God and made us unacceptable to Him. God sent Jesus, who was sinless, to die on the cross and pay the penalty for our sin. Salvation is free to all who trust in Jesus Christ as the perfect sacrifice for the sins of the world. Faith in Jesus is the only way we can have eternal life.
Because salvation is based on the person and work of Christ, and is not based on man’s works, the believer is secure throughout eternity. Salvation is maintained by the grace and power of God, not by the self-sufficiency of the believer.
Christian baptism is the immersion of a believer in water, giving public testimony of his faith in Christ. It is a physical act symbolizing the spiritual salvation of the believer and as such has no saving quality of its own. Baptism is the outward, visible testimony of salvation.
