Transforming Lives in God's Woods and Waters

“My experiences here changed my life for the better. This place created some of my fondest memories and gave me some of my most favorite friends. I am forever grateful and blessed.”

Former camper and staff member

The Summer Camp program invites children and youth of all ages to experience fun and fellowship in the midst of God’s creation.

Retreat season is a time for groups of all ages and the surrounding community to experience the sacred grounds of camp in the non-summer months.

Interested in supporting camp? There are a number of ways to give your time, energy, and resources. Check out the many ways to give back to camp!

The Outdoor Education program, which includes After School Adventures for K-4 students, gives students the opportunity to learn more about the natural world.
