Why I Love Being On Camp Staff

"I love being on camp staff because if gives you a better understanding of childlike faith. In the midst of the chaos of things that need to get done, you find the joy in the simplicity of camper questions. You find joy in the collaboration and encouragement of your teammates. You cherish the sweet moments where you're able to pray and speak life to your campers. Even through the rough moments you push on and rejoice because being used as an instrument for God's Kingdom is a great honor." -Breana, Counselor 2016

Upkeep and Development of Grounds, Buildings and Equipment

There is never a shortage of projects in need of completion at camp! We have been blessed with an awesome place to rest and enjoy God and each other! We want this place to be enjoyed for many years into the future, so it takes many hands to care for it. If you would like to help with this, below are some options for helping with upkeep and development of camp’s grounds, buildings and equipment.

  • Spring Work Day days are May 6 and 20, 2017! We will work on getting camp cleaned up and ready for the summer season. To view a list of projects that we will be working on click the button below. If you would like to tackle a skilled/semiskilled project, let us know so that we can have the materials ready!
  • Schedule a time for your family, church or group to tackle a specific project. These projects could range in high skill or very little skill needed. For dates and projects available, please contact Tim.
  • Right now we have a few cabins as well as the store building that are in need of some renovations. Your group or church could “adopt” one of these, helping to raise the funds and offer labor to complete this.
