"I learned that He's always there to support & love me- through all the trials in my life. It'll be worth it in the end, to stand next to God and have eternal life."

Campers have shared all sorts of things they've learned and experienced. Enjoy the photos and stories included here and know that there are so many more that didn't get captured! Please join us in praying for each camper and person who has stepped on grounds this summer, and please know that with your prayers, partnership, support, and sponsorship, God has changed the lives of campers and staff at Covenant Heights this summer- to Him be the glory!

"I learned that our age doesn't matter. We can still help others."

"I learned that God will help you in scary times- like when I lost my tooth."

"I learned that He loves me!"

Registration for Summer 2017 opens October 1st- sign up early for your pick of our 5 great weeks!

"I climbed a waterfall!"

"I fell on a rock and I felt fine."

"One day, I forgot to put underwear on."

"God made us all unique and we are wonderfully made!"
