Graphite Bible Camp is nestled among the hills in Hastings County, Ontario, 13 miles
north of the village of Bancroft. The camp came intoexistence because the camp founders,
Doug and Marion Robinson, had a burden to see all the children in the Bancroft area
experience a summer camp no matter what they could afford financially.
Doug and Marion's concern for the area arose because of the nature of Doug's business.
He drove his Texaco truck through the small towns and farming area six days a week.
Everywhere he went there seemed to be boys and girls with nothing to do. At this
time there was nothing in the area for children to get involved in and many of the
families would not be able to afford the luxury.
God would eventually give Doug and Marion a vision for Graphite Bible Camp. By faith
God would be trusted to meet the daily needs of the camp. The couple shared their
burden with others and God soon blessed them with the current location, a nine-acre
field. Doug and Marion soon gave up their business and gave their lives to the camp
To this day, Graphite's Day Camp program is still strictly run on free will donations
and our low Overnight Camp fee is set to allow youth to be able to enjoy a camping
experience that they might not otherwise be able to.
