Camp News

April 2017

This month, learn about how God has provided a roof, air conditioning, another great guest group, and more!

More Scouts @ Camp

Last week, we had a wonderful time with American Heritage Girls and Trail Life troops! These Christian scout groups came for their first weekend retreat and thoroughly enjoyed their visit. We got to share the gospel at the planetarium and train, and began what we hope will become a regular partnership with these ministries. Please pray with us about this possibility of partnering with the group as a sort of "home camp"! It seems like a great new ministry opportunity to encourage God's people.
(Also, we praise the Lord that the scout group we told you about last month has already made plans to come back this summer!)

Calling all Volunteers! Work Day on April 15

Thank you to all our volunteers who worked so hard last month! Because of you, most buildings have been spring-cleaned, and the lake trails are looking great without fallen trees. Our next (and final) work day is scheduled for April 15 @ 9:30 am. Men will be clearing dead trees along the planetarium road, while women will be working on more spring cleaning inside the various camp buildings. Lunch will be provided. If you can come, just reply to this email to let us know. Thank you!

Answered Prayer: AC, a Roof, and a Restroom

Thanks so much for your prayers about our ongoing projects and needs! God has provided more than we could have hoped for this past month: gifts for air conditioning in the rec room, the boys' lodge roof, and the wheelchair-accessible restroom have all come in!

The roof is now completed, and looks so much better than the old, deteriorating shingles it replaced! Not only that, but we don't have to worry about a leaky roof anymore.
The rec room AC unit is installed, too, leaving the first part of that project complete. The next phase will be to replace some old, damaged doors with new ones. Not only will they look much better, but they'll keep the cool air indoors, too. This project should be completed before summer, Lord-willing.
Work on the new wheelchair-accessible restroom will continue soon: we hope to install insulation and walls this month, followed by the floors. Please pray for steady, quality work on this project over the next couple of months.

Please Pray: Staff & Campers

Please keep praying that God would bring together the right team of staff members for this summer. At the moment, we still need a nurse, lifeguards, a kitchen manager, and a few more counselors.

Please continue to pray for campers, too! Pray not only that more would register, but that each one coming would have a heart ready to live out what they learn from God's Word at camp.

Coming Up Next...

Our first "summer" church camp will be here next week! Please pray that campers would take the next step in their relationship with God while they are here—either for salvation or spiritual growth.

Thanks so much for reading and praying,
Ben Sparks
