Timber Bay History
Timber Bay, a ministry of Youth Investment Foundation, is an organization of dedicated youth workers committed to personal, ongoing mentorship with young people.
Since 1970, Timber Bay has accomplished this through a combination of camping retreats and personal ongoing follow-up in communities throughout the upper Midwest.
From the beginning, our unified focus has been to help teens discover the emotional and spiritual healing that Christ can bring to their lives.
You’ll agree real impact takes time and balanced growth for a teen happens when well-developed support systems are in place. One-time events and mountaintop experiences are not nearly as effective as having a safe, healthy community, where long-term mentors walk with teens through everyday life.
Without strong support systems like Timber Bay, youth are more likely to make poor choices, fall into destructive behaviors, and perpetuate negative cycles. Without someone to guide them they struggle to overcome the obstacles in their lives.
