Sacandaga Bible Conference and Retreat Center

Sacandaga Bible Conference (SBC) is a ministry committed to reaching youth and adults alike with the gospel of Christ. As a year round conference and retreat center for all ages, our goal is to evangelize and disciple through a variety of special speakers, concerts and fun activities.

A great amenity of SBC is the 500 feet of waterfront on the Sacandaga Lake, which welcomes water-skiing, canoeing, sailing, paddle boating, kayaking, tubing and swimming. With 144 acres of land, SBC offers a wide variety of outdoor activities and adventures. SBC has many wonderful accommodations from tent and RV sites, for the more adventurous, to welcoming family style cottages. Enjoy a peaceful night in our Poplar Lodge Motel or our Adirondack styled Pine Lodge. SBC’s Hilltop Dining Hall hosts our Saturday Smorgasbord, as well as delicious meals throughout the week. Following the Saturday Smorgasbord, you are welcome to enjoy a concert in our Tabernacle.

SBC offers a summer program for youth, adults and families. SBC’s exciting youth program is the place to be for kids, ages 5-18, during the summer.
