Group Camp Testimonials

Group Camp Staff finds fulfillment in serving

“This was one of the most fulfilling times I have ever had in my life. I plan on serving again next year.”

Grace finds purpose in God

“My daughter Grace just returned from camp with our church in Pueblo, Colorado. She cried lots of happy tears and said it was the best week of her life. She had a rough year with “friends” and with a very strained relationship with her dad.  She said she has never felt closer to God and said to me, “Momma for the first time ever I feel like maybe God could use me in ministry in the future!”

He came in a stranger and went home a member of their family

A teen from a non-Christian family came to camp alone and not knowing anyone until a youth pastor befriended him on the bus. Later at camp, after an experience where campers nailed their “masks” to a cross, he opened up with many questions. In response, his group rallied around him with acceptance and love for the entire week. Leadership resolved to get him a ride to church regularly back home. He came in a stranger and went home a member of their family!

Seven kids find Jesus

Family Camp Testimonials

Family always grows closer at camp

“I was thrilled that my friends who came enjoyed the camp experience like we do. I always discover ways to grow closer with my family when I’m at camp. Love it!”

Thankful for new relationships

“We are thankful for the new relationships we built. Thankful for the new experiences we were able to share as a family. And so thankful all of that happened in a safe Christian environment.”

Family disconnects to reconnect

“We loved camp. It was amazing to be able to disconnect from the outside world and really connect as a family. I’m thankful for childcare because I was able to spend time with just the big kids which doesn’t happen in our normal day-to-day life. I enjoyed seeing joy on my kids faces as they tried new activities. We are already excited for camp next year.”

Family changed. Coming back.

“My family is changed for the better. And we can’t wait to come back next year.”

Got my 15 year old to open up

“The best part of our experience was your staff. Our two counselors were amazing and the youth leader got my 15-year-old son to open up…and I’m a pastor. I am very thankful!”

Building relationships with new friends

“We really liked how our groups were broken up by regions this year. It was fun to build relationships with those that live in the same city as us.”

Seeds Planted.

“My kids thoroughly enjoyed it. And while I don’t see all the seeds that were planted, I know they were.”

Day Camp Testimonials

Parents appreciate fun exposure to faith

“Excellent experience. We are non-Christian belief system in both of their homes (mom’s house and dad’s house separate), and feel that this is very positive exposure for Lauren and Brooke, so that they may choose faith path that resonates with them. It provokes deeper questions and self introspection, in a non-threatening and fun way that is age appropriate for them. Thanks!”

Erica counts down the days

“Erica has had a calendar made crossing off days these last couple of months until camp. Last week she said, ‘I just want it to be Monday!’”  Erica also told her mom that she knows God changes her here.
