Again the beautiful and majestic area of Northwest Montana known as “Glacier Country” will host the Feast of Tabernacles. This region of Montana is world-renowned for its mountains, rivers and wilderness areas—especially Glacier National Park, the Bob Marshall Wilderness and Flathead Lake. In addition to the grand landscapes, the small towns abound with great restaurants and shopping opportunities.
This year the Feast site will be the Glacier Bible Camp, which is only 10 miles from the entrance to Glacier National Park. See www.glacierbiblecamp.org for more information. This new location has a number of advantages over our previous location that we think many will enjoy. Yet the new site still retains many of the wonderful and unique aspects of the Montana site that many locals have come to cherish and newcomers to the site have really enjoyed. The closer proximity to Glacier National Park will allow those who desire to spend more time exploring the park to do so without the drive to get there. This may allow for more excursions to such locations as Pole Bridge and Bowman Lake, East Glacier, Saint Mary Lake and even Many Glaciers and Lake Sherbrune.
At Glacier Bible Camp they call their largest meeting building “the Tabernacle.” This building is designed to accommodate 1,000 people with comfortable cushioned chairs. Although we are not expecting anywhere near 1,000 people to attend this site, it does mean we will now be able to accommodate nearly all who desire to come to Montana to celebrate the Feast of Tabernacles. (Our anticipated attendance is 200-250.)
The Glacier Bible Camp offers a wide range of on-site accommodations. See more information below. All reservations for housing at Glacier Bible Camp need to be made on the www.ucg-mt.org website.
The Glacier Bible Camp dining hall will provide reasonably priced meals that anyone can register for whether staying onsite or offsite. Breakfast has two options—full breakfast for $6 or continental breakfast for $4. Lunch is $7, and dinners and brunches are $8. Children under 5 eat free. Children 5 through 12 are half price. An adult could have all their meals onsite for $164—from the opening night dinner to breakfast on the day after the Eighth Day. However, the menu will be available online at www.ucg-mt.org, and individuals can determine which meals they’d like to eat onsite. Many have found the fellowship at the shared meals to be one of the highlights of the Montana feast!
NOTE: Glacier Bible Camp will be offering gluten-free meals for those who require a gluten free diet.
Although many will be staying on-site, there are many off site options to choose from when it comes to housing. There are many motels, cabins, campgrounds, resorts, bed and breakfasts, and vacation homes in the area. Members are free to find whatever housing best suits their needs. However, many have found that by staying on-site, although maybe more rustic than many other sites, they have enjoyed the increased opportunities for fellowship.
Anyone not staying at the camp is charged $2.50 per person per day ($20 for the entire festival).
