Our Master's Camp Philosophy
We place Christ at the helm of everything we do as an organization. From showing program participants extraordinary compassion to carefully preparing delicious meals, God is in all of our motivations. Our parent organization also provides help for those struggling with homelessness as well as hunger in a continuing effort to meet hurting people at their deepest need. Another factor that sets us apart from any other recovery facilities is our cost. Sponsorship cost is reduced greatly by our parent organization which pays over half of the cost for each and every program participant, reducing your expense to just $4,900 for 90 days of in-house care.

ABOUT OUR MASTER’S CAMP
Our Master’s Camp is a Christian nonprofit treatment program for men that’s located on 100 acres of land in Pikeville, Tenn., about 45 minutes north of Chattanooga. While the residential program is biblically based, treatment also integrates addiction counseling and relapse prevention.
Men are required to participate in a minimum of 90 days of treatment, making Our Master’s Camp one of just 54 (24.9 percent) month-or-longer residential programs in the state; it is also one of 67 (30.9 percent) that’s dedicated exclusively to adult men.
Detox services are not available.
TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT
According to its website, Our Master’s Camp takes both a clinical and spiritual approach to recovery, with a strong focus on addressing trauma and self-defeating behaviors. The program includes individual counseling, relapse prevention, trauma recovery exercises, and 12-step work. Our Master’s Camp is also one of just 123 (56.7 percent) of facilities statewide with peer support groups.
A typical day at “camp” begins with showers and room cleaning, followed by a full breakfast. Days are complete with Bible study, group therapy, healing-related exercises, substance abuse workbook exercises, counselor-led discussions, and the viewing of inspirational videos. Afternoons offer opportunity for work therapy activities such as gardening, apple picking and cleaning. Work therapy serves two purposes - men learn valuable skills and become productive members of society. The work also helps keep the program running smoothly.
After work, men enjoy free time until dinner and then attend guest lectures and sermons. Weekends are less structured and include time off on Saturdays and church on Sundays. Upon completing 90 days (or more) of treatment, successful program graduates may decide to enroll into a sober living home nearby.
The treatment team includes certified addiction counselors and a certified clinical supervisor. Many of the staff members are in recovery themselves. The team is not medically staffed.
ACCOMMODATIONS & AMENITIES
According to the facility's website, men reside in clean and simple bedrooms that are shared with another. Weather permitting, men are encouraged to relax around the campus pond. On Saturdays, men can spend up to $40 weekly on necessities at a local Walmart.
