What is CBLI?

Central Bible Leadership Institute offers a place for Salvation Army people engaged in mission to rest, enjoy fellowship, and experience growth since 1944. CBLI’s purpose is to nurture and prepare Salvation Army people to serve the world through the Army’s mission to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ and meet human needs in his name without discrimination.

Adults, families with children, young adults, and teens enjoy a wide variety of activities led by Salvation Army leaders and guests. There are age specific tracks for Bible study, leadership training, and worship as well as many opportunities for all campers to share in worship, fellowship, recreation and meals.

CBLI is an affordable and a wonderful way to spend vacation time in fellowship with friends and family, studying God's word and becoming spiritually and physically refreshed. The cost of accommodations, meals, child care, and most program material are included in the camper registration fee. Some corps and divisions offer scholarships to help with registration fees.
