Foxton Bible Camp was established in 1961 primarily to facilitate an annual Family Camp. Since then the camp has been continually modernised and expanded. It now has facilities safe for families and youth and is available for hire.

Foxton Bible Camp is a self-catering camp. Each group hiring the camp is responsible for their own food supply and catering and adherence to any Food Safety regulations.

We firmly believe in the value of a camping programme for spiritual encouragement and the strengthening of ties of fellowship among the people of God. This Christian emphasis remains our priority, but community groups are also able to hire the facilities.

The grounds have been developed to enable camps to be contained on-site if they wish. The local area is also ideal for camps. The ocean beach is less than a half hour walk (3 km) from Camp and the river estuary only minutes away. The Manawatu River Estuary draws visitors keen to see the 2000 birds and up to 58 species known to flock there over the northern winter and is a stopover for many rare and migratory birds.

Foxton township is being developed as an historical town and offers horse-drawn tram rides, Dutch windmill, boutique shops, flax museum, Audiovisual Museum and the new Dutch-Maori museum (Te Awahou Nieuwe Stroom). There is also a public covered swimming pool.

Foxton Beach School is the site of an astronomical observatory available through the local Astronomy Club.
