About Burton Camp:

Burton Camp is the result of a dream of Jason Carlisle and his son, Jack Carlisle. They are long-time local ranchers from the Burton area of Arizona's White Mountains. The Carlisle family purchased the land in Burton over 50 years ago. They later donated the acreage for the camp to Burton Church.

It is thought that the site of the camp was first used as a meeting place for Native Americans, primarily Apaches. It is believed Navajo churches may have also met here. In 2003, Burton Church gave the current 30 acres for the camp to Desert Pines Baptist Association targeting its use as a primitive camp for young people or for use by local churches.

DPBA, with the effort of numerous volunteers, plans to double the capacity of the camp from its current of approximately 60 to 75 campers. Burton Camp is funded primarily by donations. Donations are received from private individuals, churches, church organizations like Sunday School classes or youth groups, and even a few corporate sponsorships. 99% of the work at Burton Camp has been performed by volunteers and donated professional services.

Each year, Burton Camp hosts children from all over the State of Arizona. We have packed out every camp for kids and teens that DPBA has put together. About 10 of our campers receive scholarships from various sources to enable them to attend.

Our current needs include:

  • Cinders for walk/drive ways
  • Landscaping for water control

We urge you to become a part of building Burton Camp and reaching kids for Christ! Call DPBA at 928-536-7200 to learn more about how you can contribute!
