2015 has been a year of great blessing. Not only did we see a great increase in summer campers, but God blessed camp with a year that will no doubt be remembered for a long time. It was sad to see a fee great staff members transition on in their lives. But as always, God had been preparing new faces to partner with us.
The Standing Stones Campaign has been a major focus for camp. Of the $3 million dollar goal, we hit the first marker of $1 million, which has allowed us to move forward with the construction of the new, required Waste Plant system. Work was started this fall and we got as far as we could before winter started to settle in. Construction will resume in the spring with completion in early summer.
The next phase for The Standing Stones Campaign is the “Summit House”, our activity center which will house the new gymnasium, the current features of the old Friendship building, a new camp store and snack shack, and meeting rooms & gathering space for groups to enjoy great conversations.
As I enter my 18th year as Director, I marvel at how God has provided for the ministry of this camp over the years. We have seen countless young people come to Christ and many more grow in their faith. I could not be more blessed by being a part of this ministry.
Thank you for partnering with this staff as we strive to do God's Will.
