Since 1960, Alpine has given people of all ages a place to gather, experience the great outdoors, and grow closer to God. Though it welcomes thousands every year, each guest is important. Whether you want a trusted Bible camp for your child, a hospitable venue for your church retreat, or an outdoor adventure that drives home gospel truths—Alpine exists to serve you.

Located in the rolling mountains of West Virginia, Alpine is just a short drive from New River Gorge National Park and Preserve and is best known as the only licensed Christian outfitter for whitewater rafting on the New and Gauley Rivers!


Alpine Ministries, a ministry of Appalachian Bible College, exists to provide camps, adventures, and retreats for the purpose of edification and evangelism.

Staff is committed to giving each guest a clear understanding of the Gospel as presented in the Bible. Through a variety of teaching methods, Alpine strives to guide people to study and understand God’s Word as relevant, absolute truth.


Life is full of challenging opportunities that mold us to become more like the Savior. Alpine’s purpose is to provide guests with adventure experiences that lead to the discovery of God’s grace, thereby confronting each person to grow in his or her relationship with Christ and others. It seeks to provide a safe environment where each guest can choose to step beyond his or her comfort zone into a new level of learning and growth. Ultimately the goal is to help people trust more fully in God by encouraging them to voluntarily participate in challenging activities.
