Campers also visit our Country Store every other day to enjoy a refreshing soda and a piece of candy. On Friday’s merchandise can also be purchased to commemorate their stay!

It gives us great pleasure to announce that our bible-themed curriculum for 2018 is 'Royalty'. We will be sharing from the book of 1 Peter 2:9, which quotes, 'But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s special possession, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light'. As we explore what it means to be heirs to Christ’s kingdom, we will come to understand what it means to be kings and queens in training, learning how to be lead by heart and humility, and that we are blessed to be a blessing. The theme shapes our daily chapel services, bible studies and camp decor.
